Adam Scott will need a hot result at this week’s regular season-ending Wyndham Championship in North Carolina if he wants to keep a 17-year FedEx Cup playoffs streak alive.

Scott and Matt Kuchar are the only two players to have qualified for the FedEx Cup Playoffs in each season since the inception of the FedEx Cup in 2007. Kuchar enters the Wyndham at No.59 in the standings, while Scott is No.81.

Former world No.1 Scott needs a minimum of a two-way tie for ninth at the Wyndham to have a chance to move into the top 70 who progress to next week’s FedEx St Jude Championship in Memphis. A three-way tie for third, according to tour projections, would all but guarantee the Queenslander a spot in the playoffs opener.

Scott has a solid history in the playoffs, with a win at the Barclays during the opening event of the 2013 FedEx Cup finals. He finished tied for fifth in two of the playoffs stops last year.

The 43-year-old also has a good record at the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club at Greensboro, North Carolina. In 2021, he fired his way into a sudden-death playoff and missed a five-foot putt to win on the first extra hole, finishing tied second.

Of the other Australians in the field, Cameron Davis is almost on the bubble at No.69 in the FedEx standings and would need a two-way tie for 14th to get in.

At No.92 on the FedEx Cup, Aaron Baddeley would need at least a three-way tie for third while a three-way tie for second would all but assure his start in the finals.

Last year’s Korn Ferry Tour graduate, Sydney native Harrison Endycott, is 127th in the standings, Cameron Percy is 148th, Lucas Herbert is 149th, and Greg Chalmers is 216th. Herbert is not playing, while the rest would all need a victory to advance (anyone at No.122 or worse in the standings needs a win).

Jason Day, 11th on the FedEx Cup standings, did not need to play this week. Min Woo Lee, who was playing on Special Temporary Membership, is not eligible for the FedEx Cup playoffs but has until the end of the Fall Series (autumn events September-November) to earn as many FedEx Cup points as 125th on the 2022 FedEx Cup, which is the requirement for him to earn a PGA Tour card this way. He can also finish within the top 10 on the DP World Tour rankings at the end of the European season and earn a PGA Tour card through the two tour’s strategic alliance. Lee is third on those European standings once Europeans who play on the PGA Tour (Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy are removed.
