FedExCup and the Barracuda Championship

With only three weeks and four events remaining before the start of the FedExCup Playoffs, the Barracuda Championship will again play a key role in determining who qualifies for The Barclays, the first event in the FedExCup Playoffs. Gary Woodland’s victory in 2013 moved him from No. 116 to No. 54 in the FedExCup standings, and he went on to qualify for all four FedExCup Playoffs events, ending the season 23rd in the final FedExCup standings.

The Barracuda Championship and World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational begin the final, three-week stretch of the PGA TOUR Season leading up to The Barclays, the first event in the FedExCup Playoffs. The top 125 players on the FedExCup points list following the Wyndham Championship, August 14-17, will qualify for The Barclays.
