Playoff format

Players are awarded FedEx Cup points based on their performance in official PGA Tour events. The top 125 players in the FedEx Cup standings at the end of the regular season advance to the three-event playoffs. The top 70 golfers in the standings at the end of the Northern Trust in New Jersey advance to the BMW Championship at Caves Valley, and the top 30 in the standings after this week’s event in Owings Mills move on to the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta from Sept. 2-5.

The FedEx Cup standings are used to set starting positions at the Tour Championship. The No. 1 player begins at 10-under-par, No. 2 at 8-under, and so on. Players ranked Nos. 26-30 start at even par. Whoever finishes the Tour Championship with the lowest score wins the FedEx Cup and its $15 million bonus.
