PGA Tour: Which golfers have qualified for East Lake and are still in the running to win the FedExCup after Shane Lowry almost missed out on a spot in the PGA Tour’s season-ending Tour Championship?
Only the top 70 players in the rankings after that week advanced to the BMW Championship, which was won by Will Zalatoris in Memphis. The top 125 players were qualified to compete in the FedEx St Jude Championship.
The top 30 in the rankings following the conclusion of the second FedExCup Playoff on Sunday advanced. The first two tournaments offered 2,000 points to the winner, quadruple the amount on offer for a regular event.
Lowry entered the week before last ranked 37th overall for the season, but he temporarily climbed into the top 30 during his final round at Wilmington Country Club after making a putt at the par-five 14th to record his fifth birdie of the day.
The former Open champion finished with a final round of 68, which was just good enough for him to finish in 31st place on a day when four players broke under the qualifying threshold for Atlanta after a costly bogey on the 17th.
After finishing second and just missing out on a first PGA Tour victory since 2014, Scott Stallings climbed from 46th to 12th, and K.H. Lee climbed from 33rd to 26th thanks to his outstanding final-round 65.
Adam Scott’s outstanding up-and-down on the last hole allowed him to tie Lee for the lead at 10 under and move up from 45th to 29th. Aaron Wise’s tie for 15th allowed him to squeak up one position to take the 30th and final slot.
Joohyung Kim, who won the Wyndham Championship, and American Davis Riley, who finished tied for 54th, both dropped nine spots to positions 34 and 35, respectively. JJ Spaun and Kevin Kisner were the other two players to fall outside the top 30 and see their seasons end.
