An amateur won a PGA Tour event; what happens with FedEx Cup points, exemptions, money, etc.?

An amateur won on the PGA Tour for the first time in 33 years on Sunday.

In other words, Scottie Scheffler and Jon Rahm, the last two Masters champions, had not yet been born when Phil Mickelson won the 1991 Northern Telecom Open in Tucson, Arizona, as a 20-year-old Arizona State student.

Nick Dunlap, a 20-year-old Alabama sophomore and the defending U.S. Amateur champion, made a putt of nearly 6 feet to win the American Express by one shot over Christiaan Bezuidenhout at the Pete Dye Stadium Course in La Quinta, California. Dunlap shot 60-70 on the weekend and won with a 29-under-par 259.

It’s the 72-hole tournament record since the event went from 90 holes to 72 holes in 2012.

Here are questions and answers in the aftermath of Dunlap’s victory:
