Two-time major champion Collin Morikawa will receive a $ 2 million bonus from the PGA Tour after completing the Wyndham Championship despite being out of the field this week.

Morikawa heads the Comcast Business TOUR TOP 10, a $ 10 million bonus pool that will be distributed among the top 10 players in the FedExCup standings at the end of the regular PGA Tour season.

The world number 3 moved up the overall standings after winning the WGC Workday Championship in February with a one-two at The Open last month – during the 2020-21 season.

Morikawa chose not to play at Sedgefield Country Club this week, the last regular event before the FedExCup PlayOffs.

Nine of the other top 11 players in the FedExCup rating also skipped the event, leaving Louis Oosthuizen as the only golfer who had a chance to overtake Morikawa, only to have the South African resign before the tournament due to a neck injury.
