FedExCup Playoffs scenarios ahead of the Wyndham Championship

    Written by Staff @PGATOUR

    The PGA TOUR’s FedExCup Regular-Season finale is here and, as always, the Wyndham Championship will undoubtedly provide an abundance of drama come late Sunday. Although this year, the proverbial bubble for entry into the FedExCup Playoffs has moved up 55 spots from 125 to 70, meaning the top 70 in FedExCup standings after the last putt drops at Sedgefield Country Club will advance to the FedEx St. Jude Championship next week at TPC Southwind.

    The top 50 following the FedEx St. Jude Championship will move on to the BMW Championship at Olympia Fields. The top 30 from there will advance to the TOUR Championship to compete for the FedExCup. Those finishing outside the top 70 after this week will have the ability to earn status for 2024 via the FedExCup Fall, which includes seven events.

    For now, the focus is on those sitting outside 70th in FedExCup standings, keeping in mind that anyone ranked after Hideki Matsuyama (No. 56) is not mathematically safe to advance. Austin Eckroat is right at 70th, then Ben Taylor, Garrick Higgo and K.H. Lee are the first three men on the outside sitting, respectively, at Nos. 71-73.

    Shane Lowry, the 2019 Open champion who is ranked 30th in the world, is at 76th after collecting only one top-10 finish all season. Former world No. 1 and 2017 FedExCup champion Justin Thomas is at No. 79, having missed six cuts this season, including three of his last four starts. Adam Scott sits at No. 81.

    Here is a closer look at scenarios for where players need to finish to crack the top 70:
