Below is the FedExCup Playoffs and Eligibility Points List through Sep. 2:
The FedExCup Playoffs and the Eligibility Points List has been updated to provide an accurate picture of who qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs
In a June memo to the TOUR’s membership, Commissioner Jay Monahan affirmed that players who are suspended for competing in unauthorized events will not negatively impact members’ eligibility for tournaments or their status on the TOUR. Consistent with that statement, the Policy Board approved the creation of the FedExCup Playoffs and Eligibility Points List, which does not include the suspended players.
The top 125 players from the new list qualified for the FedEx St. Jude Championship, the first event of the FedExCup Playoffs. The top 70 eligible qualified for the BMW Championship, and the top 30 qualified for the season-ending TOUR Championship at Atlanta’s East Lake Golf Club. The TOUR Championship was competed using FedExCup Starting Strokes to determine the winner of the FedExCup.
While the FedExCup Playoffs and Eligibility Points List will not replace the Official FedExCup Standings, the eligibility list will also be used to determine members’ FedExCup bonus payments (suspended players will be paid bonuses based on their position on the Official FedExCup Standings), players’ status for next season and their eligibility for the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. The top 125 on the FedExCup Playoffs and Eligibility Points List will retain full membership for next season and Nos. 126-200 will retain the corresponding status and be eligible for the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.
The U.S. and International Team Presidents Cup standings also will be updated to reflect players who are eligible for participation. The Presidents Cup is limited to players who are eligible for tournament play.
