Sungjae Im shot a 2-under-par 68 in the fourth round on the final day of the tournament at TPC Southwind (par 70) in Memphis
USA on the 14th (Korean time) to finish tied for sixth place with a total of 11-under-par 269.
The three-tournament playoffs after the end of the regular season will feature only 70 players in the first round
50 players in the second round
and 30 players in the third round.
Sungjae Im, who started the first round of the playoffs in 32nd place in FedEx Cup points, finished tied for sixth and moved up four spots to 28th in FedEx Cup points to qualify for the Tour Championship, which will be held in the final round.
Sungjae Im, who made his PGA Tour debut in the 2018~2019 season, has played in four consecutive Tour Championships until last season. Starting with 19th place in his first season, he finished 11th, 20th, and last season runner-up, earning $5.75 million in bonus prize money.
The FedEx Cup Playoffs is a “war of words” in which the winner of the final Tour Championship takes home $18 million in bonus prize money.
If you don’t qualify for the Tour Championship, you lose your chance to challenge for the championship bonus prize.
In addition to the bonus prize money, there are many benefits, such as the right to qualify for major tournaments such as the Masters and the right to qualify for special tournaments without a cut-off. In effect, it’s a token of being treated like a PGA Tour player.
Si Woo Kim, who entered the first round of the PO tied for 16th place (9-under-par 271) in FedEx points, moving up one spot in the FedEx Cup standings and effectively securing his spot as Tour Champion.
After qualifying for the playoffs for eight consecutive seasons, Kim Si Woo’s highest ranking in history is 17th in the 2015~2016 season. Since then, however, his bid to qualify for the Tour Championship has been thwarted, and his chances of making his first final appearance in seven years have increased this year.
Kim Joo-hyung tied for 24th place (7-under-par 273) in the tournament, dropping from 14th to 18th in the FedEx Cup points standings, but he is safe to advance to the third round.
Last season, they went to the second round.
Byung-Hun Ahn finished the first round tied for 37th place (5-under-par 275), making it difficult for him to advance to the final round.
Byung-Hun Ahn, who dropped from 37th to 38th in FedEx points, had the pressure to move up more than eight spots in the second round.
43-year-old veteran Lucas Glover (USA) shot a total of 15-under-par 265 to win after overtime with Patrick Cantlay (USA), who finished the regular round.
After winning the Wyndham Championship in the final event of the regular season and dramatically advancing to the playoffs, Glover continued his meteoric run by dominating Game 1 of the playoffs.
His pre-Wyndham Championship ranking rose from 112th to 49th with a win and 4th at the end of the first round, increasing his chances of winning $18 million in bonus prize money.
In overtime on the 18th hole (par-4), Cantlay dropped his tee shot into the penalty area and leaned toward the extra glovers for the early win.
Glover calmly made par and Cantlay made bogey to seal the trophy.
The prize money for the tournament is $3.6 million.
