FedEx Cup 2022 standings: Golfers who lost their PGA TOUR card out of the Top 125

The Wyndham Tournament may not be the funniest stop on the PGA Tour, but for mid-group players, it’s one of the most important events of the year because it’s the last chance to earn FedEx Cup points to stay a member of the TOUR.

Players who finished 125th best in the FedEx Cup points race will retain full exempt status for the 2022-23 season. These players will also head to Memphis next week for the first round of the FedEx Cup qualifiers at the FedEx St. Jude Championship.

But for those who don’t fall short and rank 126-200 on the FedEx list, they’ll be heading to the Korn Ferry Tour Playoffs in a couple of weeks. At these stops, they will be combined with the top 75 players of the Korn Ferry Tour in a three-week battle with 25 Tour Cards available. These cards will not be completely exempted, and how high you go will determine how many events you will be eligible to enter next season.

There are other ways to be excused, and that’s a fairly long list here. Stewart Cink enters the weekend as number 125 on the FedEx Cup list, but even if he doesn’t stay on the Top 125 list, his status as one of the top 25 financial winners in PGA TOUR history (18th all-time, $42,735,681) ) means that he can use a one-time exemption as a member of that roster to play next season. This also applies to players in the top 50, and players can re-progress if they have already used an exemption from the top 25.

The best exemptions go to winners of a major tournament or tournament players in the past five years. Then the regular PGA Tour winners in the last two seasons plus the current season, and then it starts to taper off a bit. You want to be as high as possible on the priority list, and the difference between being in the top 125 and not being huge.

Below is a list of players ranked 110 to 200 in the FedEx Cup points list, and how their results in the Wyndham Championship will affect their standing. The top 65 and ties to the projected cut-off line will be cut off at -2 as of now.

Players in italics will not be in the top 125, and will need to head to Korn Ferry Playoffs to maintain their TOUR status in 2022-23. Players who joined the LIV round could also be removed from the FedEx Cup standings, depending on the outcome of the antitrust lawsuit that was filed, as well as a temporary restraining order requested by Talor Gooch, Hudson Swafford and Matt Jones so they can compete in the FedEx Cup 2022 qualifiers.

Update August 6 8:00 am After the cut, we added each player’s future PGA Tour status as best we could determine. We think these are correct, but we may have made a mistake or missed an exemption. Don’t take it as gospel, but it’s what we think is true.
