MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Rory Sabbatini can get a full PGA Tour card for next season, courtesy of the players who have signed up with Saudi-funded LIV Golf and have been suspended.

The circumstances evolve from the PGA Tour's decision to make sure suspended players do not affect the eligibility criteria of players in good standing.

The tour now has two lists — the official FedEx Cup standings and an “eligibility points list” with the suspended players removed. That was how Rickie Fowler got the 125th spot in the FedEx Cup playoffs that start this week.
