Sheshan Golf Club – Shanghai, China. 7,261 yard par 72. Hideki Matsuyama is the defending champion, winning by strokes last year.
This week some big names return for the CIMB Classic in Malaysia. A few notable players include last year’s FedEx Cup champion Justin Thomas (who has also won this event two years straight), Hideki Matsuyama, Paul Casey, and last year’s Tour Championship winner and rookie of the year, Xander Schauffele. Oh yeah, it’s also a limited (78 player) field, with no cut. So keep that in mind.
Sadly, we are down to 30 players and one final playoff event. The winner of the playoffs takes home $10 million this year and as we all know, the field is made up of the best of the best. This is going to be a shortened version of the usual breakdown as time is running out. East Lake is a very unique course, playing at a modest 7,385 yards and par 70.
We are now halfway through the FedEx Cup Playoffs and the field has been narrowed to 70 of the best. There will be no cut this week and only the top 30 players on the FedEx Cup points leader board will earn a spot in the final showdown of the year, The Tour Championship
Everything You Need To Know: PGA DFS Breakdown, Analysis, Picks – Dell Technologies Championship (Friday 9/1)
The first round of the FedEx Cup Playoffs is in the books and we are seeing a number of big names reemerge on the scene. Dustin Johnson got the W last week beating out Jordan Spieth in extra holes at the Northern Trust and will look to stay hot at this week’s Dell Technologies Championship, the second tournament of four in the FedEx Cup playoffs. The field is now narrowed to 100 players and will be cut to 70 for next week. There are a few guys in the field this week that chose to sit out week #1, making things even more interesting.
And just like that the playoffs are here. The four majors have come and gone, Stenson took the Wyndham Championship as most expected he would, and Hideki Matsuyama sits atop the FedEx Cup standings. 2017’s major championship winners include Sergio Garcia (The Masters), Brooks Koepka (US Open), Jordan Spieth (The Open Championship), and Justin Thomas (PGA Championship). For those new to PGA and/or the FedEx Cup Playoffs, the next four weeks will determine a season-long champion of the PGA Tour. This year a total of $67 million is on the line, so we can expect to see participants grinding it out every step of the way.
Preview: This week’s Wyndham Championship isn’t exactly the most exciting slate we’ll see this PGA season, but it presents us with a solid field and good opportunity to set some bold lineups […]
