The PGA Tour culminates with the season-long race for the FedEx Cup.
The FedEx Cup Playoffs get underway August 24-27 at an event which features a new sponsor and new course with The Northern Trust at Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury, New York. Barclays ended its 12-year sponsorship causing a domino effect on the PGA Tour with Northern Trust moving its title sponsorship from Los Angeles to New York (Hyandai would move from Hawaii to Los Angeles and rename that event the Genesis Open).
The Playoffs continue the next week at TPC Boston with the Dell Technologies Championship’s traditional Labor Day Monday finish on Sept. 4.
The Playoffs take a one week break and then resume with the BMW Championship Sept. 14-17, which returns to Conway Farms Golf Club near Chicago before concluding Sept, 21-24 with the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.
Justin Thomas had an eventful weekend at the WGC-Mexico Championship that included an ace on Saturday and a club launching on Sunday that culminated in some entertaining Twitter banter with Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and other PGA Tour pros.
While he may not have closed the deal to win his first World Golf Championship event, Thomas’ fifth place was good enough to vault him ahead of Hideki Matsuyama by one point for the lead in the FedEx Cup standings.
Dustin Johnson‘s win gave him 550 points and moved him up to third place.
The biggest movers this week were Rory McIlroy +39 (from 107 to 68), J.B. Holmes +28 (from 111 to 83) and Phil Mickelson +23 (from 62 to 39).
