The PGA Tour has released its new post-season schedule, titled the ‘FedEx Cup Fall,’ which includes seven tournaments, running from mid-September to late November, with combined purses totaling $56.6 million.

  • The new schedule will finalize the top 125 priority rankings for the 2024 PGA Tour season, which will be released at a later date and run from January through August.
  • All players who finish 70th or better in the FedEx Cup Playoffs through the 2023 Tour Championship are fully exempt for the 2024 season, but players ranked from 51st to 70th will be able to build more points in the FedEx Cup Fall calendar.
  • Unlike in year’s past, FedEx Cup points earned during the Fall series will not carry over to the new season. Points earned in the fall events will finalize priority ranking heading into 2024 season.
  • The Fortinet Championship will launch the series in September with the Sanderson Farms Championship, Shriners Children’s Open, and Zozo Championship teeing off in October.
  • The series will wrap up in November with The World Wide Technology Championship, Butterfield Bermuda Championship, and RSM Classic complete.
  • Winners of the seven events will earn a two-year tour exemption and entry into the 2024 Sentry Tournament of Champions, Players Championship and the majors that have invited PGA Tour winners in the past.
  • Winners of each of the seven fall events will earn 500 FedEx Cup points.
  • The 10 players who are not already eligible who have the most season-long FedEx Cup points through the fall will earn exemptions into the first two designated events after the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
  • The PGA Tour has also moved the Houston Open to the spring and, as widely reported, the WGC-Dell Match Play will not be held next season.

In a press release, PGA Tour president Tyler Dennis said: “The reimagining of our schedule – from the regular season with designated and full-field events to the FedEx Cup Playoffs and culminating with the FedEx Cup Fall – creates distinct but connected ‘chapters,’ and within this new framework, the FedEx Cup 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 FedEx Cup Fall for the season to come.”
