Tiger Woods Takes 82nd PGA TOUR title, Debuts at Eighth in Wyndham Rewards Top 10

Tiger Woods captured his 82nd PGA TOUR title at the Zozo Championship in Japan and is now eighth in the FedExCup point standings and Wyndham Rewards Top 10. With the win in his first appearance of the 2019-’20 PGA TOUR season, Woods tied eight-time Wyndham Championship winner Sam Snead’s mark of 82 career victories, more than any other golfers.

Local favorite Hideki Matsuyama finished second, three strokes behind Woods, and jumped 14 spots into ninth place in the standings. Lanto Griffin remains first in the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 standings.

New last season, the $10 million Wyndham Rewards Top 10 not only adds drama to the Wyndham Championship as the final event before the FedExCup Playoffs but also puts an even greater premium on excelling over the course of the FedExCup Regular Season.

The top-10 Regular Season finishers in FedExCup points following the Wyndham Championship – also sponsored by Wyndham Rewards – will reap the benefits of the Wyndham Rewards Top 10. The regular season points leader will earn $2 million, followed by $1.5 million for the runner-up with the 10th-place finisher earning $500,000.
