Charles Schwab Cup Winners and HistoryCharles Schwab Cup Winners and History

The Charles Schwab Cup is a season long meta-competition similar to the PGA TOUR’s Fedex Cup Championship, the European Tour’s Race to Dubai and the LPGA’s Race To The CME Globe. The winner at the end of the season is declared the Charles Schwab Cup Champion and earns a $1 million bonus.

During the season, players are ranked according to earnings on the PGA TOUR Champions. Following the last regular season event and the first of three playoff tournaments, each player’s earnings totals are converted to points ($500.000 becomes 500,000 points). During the playoffs, the first two events are worth double points. Another points reset takes place before the final event of the season, The Charles Schwab Cup Championship.

The first playoff event features the top 72 players. The top 54 players then move on to the second playoff tournament. The finals consist of the top 36.

The points resets are designed to give the leading five players the opportunity to win the season long Charles Schwab Cup competition by winning the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, but to still allow the 36th ranked player a mathematical chance of pulling off a surprise victory.

To be clear: The tournament known as the Charles Schwab Cup Championship determines the winner of the Charles Schwab Cup season-long competition.
