Beginning in 2024, the PGA Tour will align its season with the calendar year and host the FedExCup from January through August. In autumn there will be a series of tournaments that will mark the transition to the new season in 2023. Also, the field size reduction for the FedExCup Playoffs was announced some time ago, now it has been announced what impact the smaller fields will have.
PGA Tour: Only top 50 fully eligible to play
Only the top 50 who make it to the second playoff event (BMW Championship) will receive full eligibility for the following season. In addition to the tournaments with a full field of participants, this includes the right to participate in the Designated Events, the Tournament of Champions and the Players Championship. The FedExCup Top 70 to make the Playoffs will qualify for the Full Field Events and Players.
Any players who didn’t make it into the BMW Championship can then compete in the Fall Series to secure their spot in the top 125 of the year. These top 125 are finally eligible to play for the “normal” PGA Tour events as well as for the Players Championship. The same applies to the top ten players of the DP World Tour season who are not otherwise eligible to play on the PGA Tour , the top 30 of the Korn Ferry Tour season and the top 5 and ties from Q-School.
