List of point distributions of the FedEx Cup

List of point distributions of the FedEx Cup

The following tables list the point distributions used in the FedEx Cup during the regular season and playoffs, as well as the playoff reset element of the FedEx Cup.

Regular point distribution

Only golfers who make the first cut for an event will receive points for that event. In case of a two-cut system (used if 78 or more players make the cut after two rounds), the low 70 and ties advance to the final round, and players who do not advance to the fourth round after the second cut receive points. At the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where only 60 players make the cut after three rounds, players in the standings who do not make the cut and are between 61st and 70th (and ties) will also receive points. In case of a tie, point totals are added together and divided among all golfers tied for a particular position at the end of a tournament. For example, if four golfers finish tied for fifth place, the fifth through eighth place points are summed and divided by four, with each of the golfers receiving the same number of points. The points system was modified slightly in 2013 to increase the points available for "additional events" from 250 to 300.[1]

Beginning in 2009, the points from the regular season carry-over to the first three playoff tournaments (which carry five times the points as the regular season tournaments). The points are reset for The Tour Championship according to the table below.[2]

Playoff point distribution

Only golfers who make the cut for an event will receive points for that event.

The points table was modified for the 2008 season, increasing the points awarded, in an effort to create more volatility in the playoffs.[3]

Beginning in 2009, all playoff events carry the same points, which are five times the points for a regular season event.[4]
