With two weeks to go until the end of the regular season, the FedExCup Playoffs and Eligibility Points Lista new classification of PGA Tours born as a result of the suspension of golfers who have gone to LIV Golf. This new ranking attempts to provide players, fans and the media with an accurate picture of who is best positioned to qualify for the Playoffs of the FedExCup.

In a statement sent to the players, the commissioner Jay Monah He stated that players who are suspended for competing in unauthorized events will not take away from others when it comes to keeping the card and what category they will have for the next year or their status on the TOUR. This affects players who have not relinquished their PGA Tour membership, who are already out of the FedEx Cup. That is, right now the affected players, who are suspended but have not relinquished their membership, are Pat Perez, Brooks Koepka, Charles Howell III, Abraham Ancer, Matthew Wolff, Hudson Swafford, Jason Kokrak, and Talor Gooch. In keeping with that statement, the Policy Council approved the creation of a FedExCup Playoffs and Eligibility Points ranking, which does not include suspended players. The top 125 players on the new list will qualify for the FedEx St. Jude Championship August 11-14 at TPC Southwind in Germantown, Tennessee. That is, the first playoff.

The top 70 eligible players will qualify for the BMW Championship of the following week in Wilmington Country Club, and the top 30 after the BMW will earn their place in the TOUR Championship, the grand finale of the FedEx Cup at the East Lake Golf Club from Atlanta.

The FedExCup Playoffs and Eligibility Points List will not replace the official FedExCup ranking, but the eligibility list will also be used to determine FedExCup bonus payouts, player status for the upcoming season and your eligibility for the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. Meanwhile, players suspended for going to LIV Golf will receive bonuses based on their position in the FedExCup Official Ranking. This means that there will be some places where bonuses will be doubled. For example, a golfer who has not gone to LIV finishes in ninth place in the FedEX Cup and another who has gone to LIV finishes eighth, well, for the purposes of bonus payments, both will have finished in eighth place. .

The top 125 on the FedExCup Playoffs points and eligibility list will retain full membership for the upcoming season and numbers 126-200 will retain rank and be eligible for the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.

The US Presidents Cup and international team rankings will also be updated to reflect the players who are eligible to participate. The Presidents Cup is limited to players who are eligible to play the tournament, ie those who have not gone to LIV.

This is the list of points of the FedExCup Playoffs and eligibility until the 3M Open
