Now that the 3M Open has wrapped up, just a few weeks remain until the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Playoffs start. For those who don’t remember, the top 125 golfers in the points race gain admission into the Northern Trust, which is the first of three playoff events.

The top 70 from there advance to the BMW Championship and finally, the top 30 get into the Tour Championship.

The winner of the FedEx Cup Playoffs earns $15 million.

So here are a few of the names who would be left out of the playoff fun, if the season ended today:

Missing his last two cuts (Workday and 3M) has dropped Vegas just out of the playoff although a good showing this week at the Barracuda would push him back in.

Rose has just one top 10 finish and two top 25 finishes this season,  and he’s trending in the wrong direction — missing each of his last three cuts.

Outside of a T-5 at the RBC Heritage, Sergio doesn’t have much to draw from on the 2019-2020 schedule. His next best finish on Tour this season is a T-32, which he’s done twice (Travelers and Memorial).

Although Cink has made most cuts, his finishes haven’t been much to write home about, many in the 50s and 60s. The 3M Open was a perfect example, Cink was in good position with a 69 and 68 in the opening rounds, and while he didn’t falter on the weekend, his 70 and 69 pushed him down to a T-46.

Kim has made each of his last five cuts and is inching nearer to the playoffs, but a 72 on Sunday at the 3M dropped him down to T-46. He’ll be in the field at the Barracuda this week.

The 2016 Masters champ finished T-4 at the Rocket Mortgage, but hasn’t made enough of his other 10 starts on this side of the pond.

The Champion Golfer of the Year is currently 26th in the OWGR, but he hasn’t made enough of his nine appearances on Tour.

Koepka has shown no signs that his knee is improving. He failed to make the cut at the 3M.

The South African has missed four straight cuts, including the 3M.

Dufner’s best finish of the season was last weekend at the 3M Open, and he finished T-32. He doesn’t seem poised to make a run at the playoff, but it’s not out of the question, either.

The six-time PGA Tour champ has made just one cut since the return to golf, and the one he did make — last week’s Memorial — saw him shoot 81 and 77 on the weekend.

Donald has always played on multiple continents, but he hasn’t done much in his nine Tour starts this season, outside of a T-11 at the Honda Classic.

This is all about chances. Since returning from shoulder surgery, Bryan has looked strong, making all three cuts and finishing twice in the top 25.

Let’s not worry about this year for Chris Kirk. After taking time to deal with anxiety and alcohol issues, Kirk again looks like the guy who won four times on Tour. Here’s hoping he makes the playoff next time around.
