LOOK: Big names who missed out in the FedEx Cup Playoffs standings — and lost their PGA Tour cards

By Matt Smith
After 44 regular-season events, the PGA Tour FedEx Cup Playoffs are finally here. While the likes of regulars such as Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth will be fighting it out over the next few weeks alongside relative newcomers Cameron Smith, Will Zalatoris and Viktor Hovland, there are a few notable absentees — for now and the foreseeable future.

Sunday’s finish at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina, wrapped up the 2021-22 season, with the final points standings determining who keeps their PGA Tour cards and who is eligible for the FedEx Cup Playoffs. In the end just two players outside the top 125 at the start of the week — Wyndham winner Joohyung Kim and Max McGreevy — played their way inside the number, knocking out Austin Smotherman and Matt Wallace, while Rickie Fowler clung on by the skin of his teeth, despite missing the cut.

Beginning with Wallace, there will be some big names missing out in the playoffs and next season as a number of household figures lost their PGA Tours cards:

Luke Donald. Gregory Shamus

  • Matt Wallace (126)
    Bumped by the narrowest of margins when Joohyung Kim won on Sunday.
  • Danny Willett (130)
    The 2016 Masters champion.
  • Rory Sabbatini (141)
    Slovakia’s Olympic silver medallist.
  • Bill Haas (154)
    The 2011 Tour Championship.
  • Luke Donald (159)
    Former world No. 1 and Team Europe Ryder Cup captain.
  • Brandt Snedeker (171)
    Nine-time PGA Tour winner.
  • Jimmy Walker (190)
    2016 PGA Championship winner.

With the FedEx St Jude Championship beginning at TPC Southwind in Memphis on Thursday, here is a look at who will be fighting it out for the end-of-season plaudits and prizes.
