The Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs began on Oct. 22 at the Dominion Energy Charity Classic. The top 72 in the Schwab Cup standings qualified for the 54-hole event. The top 54 after that event qualified for the TimberTech Championship (Nov. 5-7) in Boca Raton, Florida, and then the Charles Schwab Cup Championship (Nov. 11-14) is the top 36 at Phoenix Country Club.

Money is converted to points for the playoffs and each of the three playoff events are worth double points. The Dominion Energy Charity Classic and the TimberTech Championship are worth 610,000 and the Charles Schwab Cup Championship is worth 880,000 points. Therefore, the maximum a player could earn in the playoffs is 2,100,000, if someone was able to win all three events. It boils down to this … the Schwab Cup is far from decided.
Bernhard Langer won the Dominion Energy Charity Classic. With points doubled during the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs, Langer now has a 556,527-point lead over second-ranked Jim Furyk entering the TimberTech Championship (Nov. 5-7).
