The FedExCup Playoffs include four events at the end of the PGA TOUR Season -- The Barclays, Deutsche Bank Championship, BMW Championship and the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.

The PGA TOUR Season standings determine the top-125 players who qualify for the first event, The Barclays. Each playoff event offers 2,000 points (quadruple the number of points during the PGA TOUR Regular Season).

The second event, the Deutsche Bank Championship outside Boston, will have a 100-player field.

The third tournament, the BMW Championship in Chicago, will have 70 players (with no cut).

The finale, the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in Atlanta, will be comprised of the top-30 qualifiers following the BMW Championship.

Following a points reset, those players will compete for the FedExCup, with one to be crowned the FedExCup champion. Each tournament will have an $8 million purse in addition to the $35-million FedExCup bonus pool.
