Blayne Qualifies for his First FedEx Cup Playoffs

Barber will tee it up at Bethpage on Thursday, August 25 to begin The Barclays.

Barber, a former Auburn golfer, entered the Wyndham Championship at No. 120 in the Fedex Cup standings. To clinch a spot in the playoffs and keep his PGA Tour card, Barber had to make sure he didn’t fall below No. 125, the cutoff point for the Fedex Cup.

Barber didn’t flinch.

He ended the Wyndham at 12-under par, good enough for 14th place. That finish moved him up to 112th in the Fedex Cup, ensuring he will be able to play in the playoff opener: The Barclays, which takes place Thursday-Sunday at Bethpage State Park’s Black course in Bethpage, N.Y. More importantly, Barber’s Wyndham finish meant he would keep his PGA Tour card for the 2016-17 season.

Once the tournament concluded Sunday, Barber took to Twitter to share his excitement.
