So what’s the FedExCup Playoffs all about anyway? For Charley and the other top PGA TOUR players who qualified for the season-ending playoffs, it means a shot at more than $67 million in prize money over the next four weeks and the coveted title of FedExCup Champion.
Over the span of 46 events this season, players accumulate FedExCup points and the top 125 advanced to the Playoffs, which start this week with The Barclays. Charley, who finished 10th in the final FedExCup standings a year ago, is positioned at No. 33 heading into this week’s event. Here are the complete FedExCup Standings.
This is where it gets fun: the prize money increases ($8 million each week); the FedExCup points increase (2,000 to the winner each week), and it’s play well enough to advance or it’s over. Charley needs to finish in the top 100 this week to advance to next week’s Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston. From there, the top 70 players qualify for the BMW Championship. The top 30 in Indianapolis qualify for the season-ending TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in Atlanta.
