Beginning this year, significant changes have been implemented in the PGA Tour FedEx Cup Playoffs, affecting the eligibility criteria for players. Only the top 70 players from the FedEx Cup points list through the 2023 TOUR Championship will qualify for the playoffs. However, the most significant change is that players outside the top 50 will now carry their FedExCup points from the regular season and first playoff event into the FedExCup Fall, enabling them to continue accumulating points to determine their eligibility for the 2024 season.
This modification in the rules implies that players who don’t initially qualify for the playoffs have the opportunity to improve their standing, which can help them earn exemptions, access designated events, and receive increased prize money. This, in turn, will boost their chances of making it to the top 50, guaranteeing them full playing status for the following season.
The changes were made to enhance the competitiveness of the FedEx Cup Playoffs and provide additional opportunities for players to showcase their skills.
