Alright, we’re two legs into the FedExCup Playoffs, which means a couple of things: 1) there are two more left and 2) there are 30 guys who were eliminated after their performance (or lack thereof) at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday.
This is when the fabricated post-season starts to get a little more intriguing, with “bubble boys” every week and each field getting cut down. We’re at 70 now. So, who was initially inside the top 70 in FEC points before the DBC or who was outside of it and played their way into the BMW Championship next week in the Chicago area? I touched on this in Monday’s Top 5, but let’s take a more in-depth look.
Another week on the PGA Tour, another weather delay courtesy of Mother Nature. The first round of The Barclays was a stop-and-go kind of day, with two weather delays totaling six hours at Liberty National.
Tiger Woods, who finished first in FedExCup points in the regular season, shot a solid four-under, bogey-free 67 on Thursday. Woods, who had to cut his pro-am short on Wednesday because of stiffness in his back and neck, said he felt “a bit stiff” following the second rain delay, but he would receive treatment tonight and be ready to go on Friday.
