The wraparound season is gone, but that doesn’t mean there will be a shortage of PGA Tour events this fall.
The seven-event slate tees it up next month in Napa, California, at the Fortinet Championship, and concludes in December at the silly season’s PNC Championship in Orlando. In between are the Ryder Cup and a new stop in Mexico.
Tour pros will get two weeks off before it all starts up again. And there’s much more on the line in the fall for players looking to shore up their eligibility for the 2024 season, which begins in January at the Sentry.
Those ranked No. 51 and beyond in the FedEx Cup standings from 2023 will carry their FedEx Cup points from the regular season and first playoff event into the FedEx Cup Fall and continue to accumulate points to finalize eligibility for the 2024 season.
The FedEx Cup Fall will finalize the priority ranking entering the 2024 season, including the top 125 category for those who finished outside the top 70 in the FedEx Cup standings. Standard FedEx Cup points will be issued in the seven events, including 500 points awarded to the winner.
Ten players, not previously eligible, with the most season-long FedEx Cup points through the FedEx Cup Fall, will earn exemptions into the first two signature events that follow the Sentry.
A win during the fall will earn a two-year Tour exemption, 500 FedEx Cup points, entry to the season-opening Sentry and the Players Championship as well as eligibility into majors that have invited Tour winners in the past.
