What bubble boys, those outside top 125 need at Wyndham Championship

The PGA Tour’s super-season is finally coming to an end.

This week’s Wyndham Championship marks the end of the 2020-21 regular season – and unlike last season, which was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Tour status for the top 125 is up for grabs.

There are some big names near or inside the bubble. And even though many of those marquee players (Adam Scott, Matt Kuchar, Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose, etc.) won’t lose their playing privileges because of the Tour’s various safety nets if they fail to break into the top 125, they won’t be able to compete starting next week at playoff-opening Northern Trust.

Below are the players’ current FedExCup ranking – and, at minimum, what they need to do to move inside the top 125.
