The PGA Tour, an organization that operates the USA's main professional golf tours, has amended the new rule.
The rule involves the cut of the field to the lowest 70 and ties after 36 holes, but if that number exceeded 78 golfers, the field would be trimmed to the scores nearest 70th place.
The amendment will sound like this: if the number is greater than 78 players, there will be a second cut after 54 holes.
All players who miss this second cut will still receive their share of prize money. This new rule is effective this week at the Honda Classic.
