American Golfer Justin Thomas won two million USD by topping the FedEx Cup scoreboard in the regular schedule of the PGA Tour 2019-2020.
Thomas ranked final T37, received $ 45,000 in the PGA Championship 2020 on 9/8. Despite finishing mid-range in this major event, he scored 2,458 points, topping the FedEx Cup race with a reward of $ 15 million for the champion. Collin Morikawa is second with 1,902 points.
August 16 is the closing deadline for Wyndham Rewards. It was also the day of the closing of the Wyndham Championship. With a difference of 556 points, while the champion of this event got 500 points for FedEx Cup, Thomas soon won $ 2 million in the $ 10 million bonus fund of Wyndham Rewards. The top 10 winner is also up to 500,000 USD.
From the start of the season to the Wyndham Championship, Thomas hit 15 leagues with nine finishes in the top 10 final, including three championships including the CJ Cup in October, the Sentry Tournament of Champions earlier this year and the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational on August 2.
His closest victory helped him to the top of the world rankings for the second time (OWGR). But he only held that position for a week and had to give it to Jon Rahm on August 10, the day after the PGA Championship. Thomas first became number one OWGR on May 13, 2018, winning the 2017 PGA Championship, alongside 12 other PGA Tour titles.
The remaining positions in the top 10 Wyndham Rewards
After Thomas, the remaining positions in the top 10 Wyndham Rewards have not been determined. Starting on August 13, the Wyndham Championship had only four players in this group including Webb Simpson (ranked third), Im Sungjae (5), Patrick Reed (6), and Brendon Todd (9). The remaining four in the current top 10 Wyndham Rewards are Bryson DeChambeau, Daniel Berger, Rory McIlroy, and Jon Rahm.
According to the current scores, only Simpson and Im can compete for second with Morikawa to earn $ 1.5 million. Im 341 points behind Morikawa.
Initially, the Wyndham Rewards race was applied to a regular-season consisting of 43 stages and did not count three playoff events including the Tour Championship season-closing season. The competitive framework is from The Greenbrier in September 2019 to the end of WC. But the pandemic caused the PGA Tour to cancel 10 events, mostly from mid-March to rematch on June 11.
