Justin Thomas (USA) missed the cut at the 3M Open ($7.8 million purse) and will likely miss the FedExCup and Ryder Cup.

Thomas carded six birdies, two bogeys and a double-bogey in the second round of the 3M Open on the U.S. Professional Golf (PGA) Tour at TPC Twin Cities (par-71) in Minnesota on Monday (Sept. 29).

With a 2-under-par 140, Thomas missed the cut after failing to reach the 4-under-par threshold to make the cut. It was his sixth missed cut this season. 안전놀이터

With the cut, Thomas will miss the FedExCup, which is a playoff event. The first FedExCup event, the FedExCup St. Jude Championship, is limited to the top 70 players in the FedExCup standings.

Thomas was 75th in the FedExCup standings, but will drop to 79th after missing the cut. With only the Wyndham Championship remaining, if he misses the cut there as well, he will miss the FedExCup for the first time in his career.

The former World No. 1 has played in every Tour Championship except the 2014-15 season when he was a rookie. His lowest career FedExCup finish is 32nd. The Tour Championship is the last of the three FedExCup events, and only the top 30 players in the FedExCup are eligible to compete.

It’s not just the FedExCup. With his struggles this year, it’s unlikely he’ll make the Ryder Cup. He could be nominated by his captain to make the team, but if he doesn’t perform well, he’ll lose out to other candidates.

The PGA Tour said: “Thomas arrived in Minnesota full of hope, but left empty-handed at the 3M Open. He is just one week away from turning around one of the toughest seasons of his career.”

Thomas has struggled with his putting this year. He ranks 159th in the world with a -0.293 strokes gained putting percentage. He switched to a counterbalanced putter this week, but it hasn’t worked. His two-day strokes gained is 0.315, which ranks 87th.
