The FedEx Cup Playoffs, which unfolds with an 18 million dollar bonus increase, enters the second round.
Starting on the 17th (local time), the BMW Championship (total prize money of $20 million), which will be held at Olympia Fields Country Club (par 70) in Olympia Fields, Illinois, USA, is the FedEx Cup playoff final tour championship with a winning bonus prize of $18 million. It is the last gateway. The top 50 players who have passed the first leg will compete, and only 30 will advance to the Tour Championship.
The winner of this tournament will receive a separate prize money of 3.6 million dollars, as in the first game. There is no separate prize money in the final round, only the FedEx Cup bonus prize money.
If you advance to the Tour Championship, you will secure at least $500,000 (about 670 million won). The prize money reaches 18 million dollars (approximately 24 billion won), second place receives 6.5 million dollars, third place receives 5 million dollars, 4th place 4 million dollars, and 3rd place receives bonus prizes such as 3 million dollars. In addition, ‘privileges’ such as the right to participate in major competitions such as the Masters, US Open, and The Open, and the right to participate in special competitions without a season cut-off, are given, so they rise to the ranks of the so-called ‘top class’.
The qualifications for participation are up to the top 30 FedEx Cup points based on the end of the second leg of the BMW Championship.
The final game 3 is played in a different way from the 1st and 2nd games, 1st place is 10 under par, 2nd place is 8 under par, 3rd place is 7 under par, 4th place is 6 under par, 5th place is 5 under par, 6th to 10th place is 4 under par, 11th to 15th place 3 under par, 16th to 20th place 2 under par, 21st to 25th place 1 under par, 26th to 30th place even par.
Therefore, it is important to get the right to participate in the 3rd game with the highest possible ranking in the 2nd game.메이저사이트
