How it works: Wildcard Weekend, SAS Championship

Final event of 2023 PGA TOUR Champions regular season; Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs field to be finalized

    Written by Staff @PGATOUR

    This week’s SAS Championship is the 25th and final event of the 2023 regular season on PGA TOUR Champions. At the conclusion of the regular season, the top 72 players in the Charles Schwab Cup standings will advance to the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs.

    The SAS Championship (Oct. 15-15) is also known as Wildcard Weekend:

    If a player finishes inside the top 10 at the SAS Championship and doesn’t get inside the top 72 of the Charles Schwab Cup standings as a result, he gets an automatic spot into the first Playoffs event.

    • There is only one wildcard spot available.

    • The wildcard would replace the No. 72 player unless there is not a full field in the first Playoffs event. If the first Playoffs event is not a full field, then both would get in.

    • Since the wildcard concept was created in 2016, it hasn’t been used.

    Bubble Watch

    Entering this week’s SAS Championship, No. 72 Jason Bohn is the player on the bubble, with Jim Furyk one spot above at 71st. Gene Sauers is the first person looking in at No. 73 and $1,427 behind.
