The FedEx Cup: Who's in and who's out?

We've broken it down to make it more interesting

Who's currently in and out of the Top 70 for the Barclays?...



Who's gonna get what?

1st: $10,000,000.00 (Currently Patrick Reed)

2nd: $3,000,000.00  (Jason Day)

3rd: $2,000,000.00 (Dustin Johnson)

4th: $1,500,000.00 (Rory McIlroy)

5th: $1,000,000.00 (Adam Scott) (Where did he come from?! – Ed)


What happens now

- After the Deutsche Bank the field will be cut to the Top 70 who then play in the third event, the BMW in Chicago which has no cut.

- The finale, the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in Atlanta, will be comprised of the top-30 qualifiers following the BMW Championship.
