Which PGA Tour players are on the verge of losing their cards?

Some players have work to do to ensure themselves of a PGA Tour card come 2024.

With only three events left in the FedEx Cup Fall, numerous golfers will have to battle it out to remain inside the top 125 in the FedEx Cup Standings to ensure they keep their card for the 2024 season. The World Wide Technology Championship, Butterfield Bermuda Championship and RSM Classic could be the difference in someone playing on the PGA Tour next year or losing their card.

Plenty of FedEx Cup points remain up for grabs, and a win could even vault someone into the 51-60 spot, which earns spots in the first two signature events of 2024 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and Genesis Invitational.

Additionally, in a new change, players who finish 126-200 in the FedEx Cup Standings can accept full membership on the DP World Tour.

Here’s a look at which PGA Tour pros have work to do to retain their card for the 2024 season.

As it stands, van Rooyen is the last man in with three events left, sitting at 125 in the standings. He played in the first three fall events, finishing T-30, T-16 and T-23. A couple more performances like that will solidify his spot to retain his card next year.

On the other side of the coin is Dou, who finished fourth in the Korn Ferry Tour standings after the 2022 season and earned his Tour card for a second time. He has missed the cut in two of his three fall starts and moved outside of the top 125 in the standings. To not lose his card a second time, he’ll need a strong finish to the year.
