GREENSBORO, N.C. – – With just three tournaments remaining in the battle to be a part of the inaugural $10 Million Wyndham Rewards Top 10, things are about to get interesting. The top-10 positions in the FedExCup point standings, also known as the Wyndham Rewards Top 10, have remained unchanged for a few weeks, but that will most likely change after this week’s Open Championship at Royal Portrush in Ireland with all the top players competing.
Dylan Fritelli won the John Deere Classic yesterday and jumped 106 spots to 48th place in the FedExCup point standings – it was his first PGA TOUR victory. Matt Kuchar continues to lead the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 standings which did not change. Charles Howell III finished tied for sixth at the John Deere Classic, jumped two spots to 13th and is now just 48 points outside the Wyndham Rewards Top 10. The 30th-place golfer, Phil Mickelson, is just 397 points outside the Wyndham Rewards Top 10.
After the John Deere Classic, the top-five players in the FedExCup point standings and the Wyndham Rewards Top 10, Kuchar, Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele and U.S. Open Champion Gary Woodland, are separated by 498 points; the player who wins the Wyndham Championship set for July 30 – Aug. 4 will earn 500 FedExCup points. Should the top-five positions be separated by less than 500 points entering the Wyndham Championship, each of the top-five players at that time would have a shot at taking the points lead after the Wyndham Championship and earning the $2 Million Wyndham Rewards Top 10 first-place 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. 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. The bonus breakdown is below:
