Time for the Final Four... FedExCup Events, That Is

It's finally time for the Playoffs to begin. This week, the top 120 head to Old Westbury NY for the first event, the Northern Trust.

The FedExCup Cup

Glen Oaks Club is a new venue this year. It's a unique setting, as the Club features three nine-hole courses -- the Blue, Red and White -- and the Tour has created a composite course from all three nines -- holes 1-3 and 6-9 from the White course, holes 4 and 5 from the Red and the entire Blue course, giving the field a 7350-yard, par 70 layout.

Patrick Reed is the defending champion but, since last year this was the Barclays and it was played at Bethpage Black, that really doesn't give him -- or anyone else in the field -- an advantage.

PGATOUR.com has a couple of pages that might interest you as you get ready for the event. This page is the power rankings list they will post before each of the events (for you fantasy golfers) and this page is a summary of the storylines for the event.

GC's coverage begins tomorrow at 2pm ET; GC splits coverage with CBS this weekend. And while I'm not doing a "5 to Watch" post for this event, I'm going out on a limb and picking Brian Harman as a favorite -- not just for this week, but as the overall winner. PGATOUR.com's power rankings put him at #16 and he's #10 in FedExCup points, and I like the way he plays longer courses.

Let the games begin!

  1. I do not know why but I find golf a very boring sport. As a person, I am not much interested in any kind of sports but amongst them all I like golf the least.
