Tommy Fleetwood seems to be boycotting the FedExCup playoffs.

Tommy Fleetwood said on Twitter on Saturday that he will be taking a break from professional golf

spend time with his family, casting doubt on his position for the balance of the season

Since being tied for fourth at The Open Championship and his mother's passing the week after St.

Andrews, Fleetwood hasn't played and has instead spent the previous several weeks at home in Southport

Fleetwood tweeted, "Well done and good luck to everyone who reached the FedEx[Cup] Playoffs.

 I'm taking some time off to spend time with my family at home, but I want to be back 

Although Fleetwood didn't specifically state he was skipping the entire playoffs, his current

ranking of 46th is good enough to qualify for the first two tournaments, the FedEx St.

Jude Invitational and the BMW Championship, and even if he does miss the entire postseason
