GREENSBORO, N.C. – – Brooks Koepka won the World Golf Championships – FedEx St. Jude Invitational, clinched the top seed entering the FedExCup playoffs and earned the $2 Million Wyndham Rewards Top 10 first place bonus for finishing the regular season in first place in the FedExCup point standings, also known as the Wyndham Rewards Top 10.
Rory McIlroy finished tied for fourth and moved to second place earning $1.5 Million for finishing second. Matt Kuchar, who led the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 for much of the season, dropped to third place and earned $1.2 Million. Nine golfers in the Wyndham Championship field can move into the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 this week.
Paul Casey, who is playing this week’s Wyndham Championship, remained eighth. Should he win the Wyndham Championship and the 500 FedExCup points that come with the win, he would move up to fourth place and increase his Wyndham Rewards Top 10 bonus from $600,000 to $1.1 Million because the golfers who are currently fourth through seventh are not playing the Wyndham Championship.
Eight golfers in next week’s Wyndham Championship field, in addition to Casey, have a chance to move into the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 with a win at Sedgefield Country Club. Webb Simpson (13) and Chez Reavie (14) would move into fifth place with a win, Charles Howell III (17) would move into sixth place, Sungjae Im (25), Hideki Matsuyama (29) and Lucas Glover (30) would move to ninth place if they win the Wyndham while a Corey Conners win would move him to 10th place in the FedExCup point standings and reward him with a $500,000 bonus.
The top-10 Regular Season finishers in FedExCup points following the Wyndham Championship July 30-Aug. 4 – also sponsored by Wyndham Rewards – will reap the benefits of the Wyndham Rewards Top 10.
