How do the FedEx Cup playoffs work?
As the PGA Tour season plays out, golfers earn points based on their performance. The season-long points competition is tracked via the FedEx Cup standings. The top 70 players are eligible to play in the final events of the season, also known as the FedEx Cup playoffs.
The playoffs consist of three events, beginning with 70 players at the FedEx St. Jude Championship. From there, the top 50 advance to the next round, the BMW Championship. The top 30 then move on to play in the Tour Championship.
For the playoff events, there are no cuts in advance of weekend play. The first two rounds take place under normal rules, while the Tour Championship instituted a stroke-based scoring system beginning in 2019.
The FedEx Cup starting strokes align with the final point standings, which are determined following the two playoff rounds. The leader begins with a score of -10, followed by the second-place finisher at -8, continuing in declining fashion all the way down to even par for places 26 through 30.
The player with the lowest stroke total over 72 holes at the Tour Championship — when combined with his starting stroke score — is the FedEx Cup champion for the season. The winner earns a bonus of $18 million, gets credited with an official victory at the Tour Championship, and receives a five-year exemption for the PGA Tour.
