Zach Johnson Among Notable Names To Miss FedEX Cup Playoffs

Steady Zach Johnson (and two-time major winner) was one of the surprising names who didn’t finish in the top-125 this year to gain entry into the FedEX Playoffs beginning this week. In fact, the list includes players with a combined five major victories.

GolfWeek’s Adam Woodard has the story.

It’s a tough business, but like any good soldier, Zach didn’t throw his equipment company PXG under the bus–although maybe he should.

The stats are troubling to say the least even though amateurs continue to buy up the sticks–no matter how alarming the pros’ dwindling performances since making the switch.

Finally, via GolfChannel’s Nick Menta, now that Z-Lo missed his first playoff series since 2007, here are the remaining players to qualify for golf’s FedEx post-season.

Only nine players have made the playoffs every year since 2007:

Phil Mickelson
Matt Kuchar
Justin Rose
Adam Scott
Brandt Snedeker
Bubba Watson
Charles Howell III
Ryan Moore
Charley Hoffman.
