Although the final results of the Wyndham Championship didn’t quite work out the way many of the Canadians in the field had hoped, there was a silver lining for a few after some strong finishes in North Carolina.
Five Canadians have qualified to play in the FedEx Cup playoffs which is a new record for the Canadian contingent.
According to the latest FedEx Cup standings, Corey Conners will be the top Canadian at No. 31.
Conners had a strong finish at the Wyndham where he ended up at 13-under par and T22 but he just barely missed out on a top 30 finish in the FedEx standings.
Adam Hadwin missed the cut this week and dropped to No. 46 in the FedEx Cup but remains inside the top 70 which will insure he plays in the BMW Championship at Medinah August 13-18.

Calgary born Roger Sloan finished ranked No. 91 after a solid effort this week where he finished T39 at 10-under par.
Mackenzie Hughes is not far behind Sloan at No. 96 but Hughes had the chance to improve on that ranking after hovering around the top of the leader board for the first three rounds this weekend but ended up sliding down the board on Sunday where he finished T22.
The final Canadian to make the playoffs is Nick Taylor at No. 117. Taylor also missed the cut this week but has played well enough throughout the year to ensure his status in the playoffs.
Adam Svensson, David Hearn and Ben Silverman did not make the playoffs and instead will all play in the Korn Ferry Tour finals.
