The Wyndham Reward Top 10 is a season-long competition that offers a $10 million bonus for the 10 golfers who end the regular season at the Wyndham Championship inside the top 10 in FedExCup points. The player atop the standings will earn $2 million, with varying payoffs for the others through $500,000 for the 10th place finisher.

Top 10 moves: Justin Thomas, winner of last week’s THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES, moved from 37th into third place in the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 standings. Runner-up Danny Lee nearly moved into the top 10, rising from 131st to 11th. While Thomas moved inside the top 10, two players moved out – Patrick Cantlay and Tom Hoge, who co-shared the 10th spot, are now tied for 12th.
• Besides the five players currently in the top 10 standings, three others can also take over the top spot with a win this week – No. 11 Danny Lee, No. 15 Byeong Hun An and No. 20 Pat Perez.
• Several players are making their PGA TOUR season debuts this week, including the only two-time FedExCup champs – Tiger Woods and defending champ Rory McIlroy. McIlroy was second behind Brooks Koepka in last season’s Wyndham Rewards Top 10 results. Another Wyndham Rewards top-10 player from last season, No. 8 Paul Casey, also makes his season debut this week.
