With the FedEx St. Jude Championship's conclusion on Sunday evening, the top 70 is set in the projected FedEx Cup eligibility standings.

Players that found themselves inside that number will see another week, while those who finished between Nos. 71 and 125 completed their 2021-22 PGA TOUR season on Sunday.

Fan-favorite Rickie Fowler, who made the FedEx Cup playoffs on the number thanks to suspended LIV players, is among the names of those golfers whose campaign is over.

The 33-year-old made a nine on the par-4 18th during Saturday's third round and could not recover in time on Sunday. It is the third straight time Fowler, a five-time TOUR winner, will not make it to the second round.

Webb Simpson, a seven-time TOUR winner, was also unable to make a charge this week to try and move into the top 70. The 37-year-old missed the cut at 3-over this week in Memphis.

Former World No. 1 Jason Day and 10-time TOUR winner Justin Rose both also ended their chances at moving into the top 70 on Friday. Rose missed the post-season altogether last year when he finished No. 126 on the FedEx Cup standings.

Daniel Berger did not play in the FedEx St. Jude Championship this week, moving back to No. 86 as a result.

Of all the big-name players, Gary Woodland was the only one to just narrowly miss out on making the trip to Wilmington Country Club for the next round of playoffs.

Like Fowler, Woodland made the cut this week in Memphis, but his tie for 51st was not enough to move him inside the top 70. The 38-year-old will finish 2021-22 five spots short on the FedEx Cup Eligibility standings at No. 75, marking the second straight season he has missed the playoffs' second round.

Golfers who did land inside the top 70 will head to Wilmington, Delaware, for the BMW Championship on Aug. 18-21.
