PGA Tour unveils reimagined FedExCup Fall schedule

The PGA Tour unveiled its reimagined fall schedule on Wednesday featuring seven events from September to November.

During what the tour is calling FedExCup Fall, players who finish outside the top 50 in points during the 2023 season will have a chance to improve their status heading into 2024.

A total of $56.6 million in prize money will be awarded during the fall campaign, which begins two weeks after the Tour Championship.

“We are launching the most meaningful updates to the PGA TOUR season since 2007, the first year of the FedExCup,” said PGA TOUR President Tyler Dennis. “The reimagining of our schedule — from the Regular Season with Designated and Full-Field events to the FedExCup Playoffs and culminating with the FedExCup Fall — creates distinct but connected ‘chapters,’ and within this new framework, the FedExCup Fall is now more than ever an integral part of that compelling story. There will be so much at stake — and more immediate payoffs — as opportunities are unlocked in the FedExCup Fall for the season to come.

“Players have the chance to secure or improve their playing status and earn additional benefits for the following season, and we are confident a number of top performers will continue to support events that have traditionally fit into their respective schedules. We appreciate the commitment and support of all of our title sponsors and tournament organizers in working together to produce an exciting and meaningful conclusion to 2023.”

Players who finish Nos. 51-70 in FedExCup points in 2023 will have full status for 2024, but play in the fall could generate extra opportunities. Those ranked 51-60 after the fall season will earn spots into the first two designated events of the new season.

Golfers who finish between Nos. 71-125 in 2023 will need to play the fall schedule to maintain their status for next season.

Players who finish the season in the top 50 can play the fall events, too, but they will not earn any additional FedExCup points as their positions will already be locked for 2024.

The FedExCup Fall begins at the Fortinet Championship (Sept. 14-17) before taking a two-week hiatus for the Ryder Cup. Next is a three-week stretch in October: the Sanderson Farms Championship (Oct. 5-8), Shriners Children’s Open (Oct. 12-15) and the Zozo Championship (Oct. 19-22).

After a one-week break, the FedExCup Fall resumes in Los Cabos, Mexico, at the World Wide Technology Championship (Nov. 2-5), followed by the Butterfield Bermuda Championship (Nov. 9-12) and The RSM Classic (Nov. 16-19).
