In the PGA, there is a competition where the best of the best golfers can participate. It is the Tour Championships, the fourth and final competition of the PGA Tour Playoff. The eligible players are who rank within the top 30 in the FedEx Cup.

Korean male golfer Noh Seung-yul has made a step forward in advancing into his first ever Tour Championships.

At the second round Deutche Bank Championship`s final round held in Boston TPC in Norton, Massachusetts Tuesday, Noh jumped into a joint ninth with 9 under par total of 275. Thanks to this performance, he upped his ranking from 47th to 36th in FedEx Cup, qualifying for the BMW Championship, the third round of Playoff which allows only the top 70 of Fedex Cup to play.

As a rookie in PGA Tour in 2012, Noh played in BMW Championship but ranked 37th to fail in advancing to Tour Championships.
