No you are not out
Lets say that we have 7 weeks of small tournaments, and that we count 3 of them for rankings. If you miss even 5 of them (which active player probably won't), you can still collect nice number of points. Big points are still on masters and GSs
If you miss some of the masters or GS, well, then you are in the same position like you would be in longer season. Because those points you can win just once!
