The KPMG Women's PGA Championship takes place this weekend at the Congressional Country Club in Washington, DC, as Nelly Korda hopes to defend her 2021 championship.

Be sure to check out my tournament preview as well as my favorite dark horse picks, but before you make your favorite wager over at WynnBET Sportsbook, it's important to know what golfers need to shoot to make the cut.

We've seen low scores at the Women's PGA Championship over the years, with Korda finishing 19-under par last year en route to her title. But do golfers need to shoot low to make the final rounds?

What Will Be the Women's PGA Championship Cut Line?

This will be the first major championship at the renovated New Blue course at the Congressional Country Club and the LPGA thinks it'll make a lasting impression.

The course has traditionally played difficult, and the new layout puts a premium on accurate second shots and strong play around the greens. Strategic shot-placement will be required with additional bunkers and tough angles.

With that in mind, here's a look back at the cut line for the last 10 Women's PGA Championships:

  • 2021: +3
  • 2020: +13
  • 2019: +5
  • 2018: +3
  • 2017: +2
  • 2016: +7
  • 2015: +1
  • 2014: +2
  • 2013: +6
  • 2012: +8

With a new-look course, I expect some challenges for players in the first couple of rounds. I don't think the cut line will be as dramatic as 2020 at +13, but I do think the golfers are in for a struggle.

I'll go with +5 being the cut as players adjust to the new course before shooting low over the weekend.
