Justin Thomas has never missed out on the FedEx Cup Playoffs in his PGA Tour career but that record could be about to come to an end should his torrid run of form continue at this week's Wyndham Championship.
Thomas, who turned professional in 2013, has been regular participant in the Playoffs and other than in his rookie season, he has made it to the season-finale Tour Championship at East Lake every year.
But at 79th position and nine places outside the Top 70 that qualify into the first Playoffs event at the FedEx St Jude Championship next week, JT is in severe danger of ending his PGA Tour season early at Sedgefield Country Club.
Thomas, who won his second career US PGA Championship last season, has endured a wretched run of form on the PGA Tour with five missed cuts in his last seven starts.
It's now left the 2017 FedEx Cup champion not only in jeopardy of missing the FedEx Cup Playoffs for the first time in his career but also a place in the US Ryder Cup side.
JT has played in both of the last two Ryder Cups in 2018 and 2021.
Many critics still believe JT will earn one of Zach Johnson's six captain picks in his side after the Tour Championship no matter what happens this week, but there are plenty that believe he will be overlooked, especially if he fails to progress into the Playoffs come Sunday night.
Thomas has proved a huge thorn in the European Ryder Cup side in recent years by taking 6.5 pts from a possible 9.
He's also formed a formidable partnership with his good pal Jordan Spieth.
Where does Justin Thomas need to finish at the Wyndham Championship to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs?
Thomas needs a big week at the Wyndham Championship in order to progress into the Top 70 of the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
Crunching the stats ahead of this week, Thomas will need to finish solo 18th or better in order to play his way into the Playoffs.
Will Justin Thomas (79th) make the FedEx Cup Playoffs at this week's Wyndham Championship?— GolfMagic (@GolfMagic) August 1, 2023
JT has never missed the Playoffs!
Previously, the top 125 players in the FedEx Cup standings progressed into the first Playoffs event but the criteria has now changed for this season with just three counting Playoffs events instead of four.
After the FedEx St Jude Championship, the top 50 players will compete in the next Playoffs event, the BMW Championship.
Then the leading 30 players will battle it out for FedEx Cup glory at the Tour Championship at the end of the month.
After that tournament, Johnson will make his six captain's picks for the US Ryder Cup team to face Europe at Marco Simone Golf Club in Rome, Italy.
Which other big-name PGA Tour stars on the verge of missing out on the FedEx Cup Playoffs?
It's not just Thomas who is the only major champion in danger of failing to qualify for the Playoffs.
Lowry, who won the 2019 Open Championship, finds himself down in 76th place. The Irishman will likely need a two-way tie for 23rd or better to play his way into the Playoffs.
Scott, who won the 2013 Masters, is down in 81st position so will need a two-way tie for ninth or better to continue his season, while Woodland, who took the 2019 US Open, finds himself well down the list in 97th and will likely need a two-way tie for third or better.
Billy Horschel, who won the 2014 FedEx Cup, also has it all to do down in 116th place.
Horschel is going to need a huge week in order to give himself a shot at winning a second FedEx Cup.
The stats suggest Horschel will need a two-way tie for second or better to qualify for the Playoffs.
Akshay Bhatia, who won his maiden PGA Tour title last month, withdrew from last week's tournament but he is back in the field this week.
The American was left "shocked" after he dropped four places in the FedEx Cup standings.
Bhatia is another player who will need a huge result this week as he looks on from 99th.
He's likely going to need a two-way tie for third or better in order to progress.
Ludvig Aberg, who some people consider an outside shot for one of Luke Donald's six captain's picks in the European Ryder Cup team, is well down the order at 145th.
That means Aberg must win the Wyndham Championship to have any chance of heading into the Playoffs.
