At 104th in earnings on the PGA TOUR, Jamie Donaldson reserves the right to renew his membership in 2015-16.
The Wyndham Championship marked the conclusion of the regular season. The top 125 in FedExCup points qualify for the Playoffs and are fully exempt next season. The top 125 in earnings are also fully exempt, but they do not earn berths into the Playoffs. Donaldson placed 130th in the FedExCup standings. Irishman Shane Lowry landed 36th on the money list thanks to his victory at Firestone two weeks ago, but the FedExCup points collected in the World Golf Championships didn't contribute to this season's total, so at 175th in points, he ranks worst of the eight who earned 2015-16 status via earnings. The other seven (with ranks in earnings and FedExCup points, respectively): Scott Stallings (110th, 129th); Martin Kaymer (112th, 139th); Will MacKenzie (114th, 126th); Charlie Beljan (119th, 149th); Blayne Barber (122nd, 145th); Whee Kim (123rd, 141st); David Toms (125th; 144th). Lowry, Stallings and Kaymer were already fully exempt next season with victories.
