FedEx Cup Update Following Genesis Open

The PGA Tour culminates with the season-long race for the Fed Ex Cup.

The Fed Ex 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.

Hideki Matsuyama missed the cut by six shots and Justin Thomas made the cut on the number at the Genesis Open, but they remained Nos. 1 and 2 in the FedEx Cup standings.

Dustin Johnson’s runaway victory at Riviera not only moved him to No. 1 in the golf rankings, but it propelled him up 27 spots in the FedEx Cup standings from No. 33 to No. 6.

The biggest movers this week were Scott Brown +122 (from 162 to 40 with a T2 at Riviera), K.J. Choi +73 (from 224 to 151 with a T17) and Wesley Bryan +66 (from 154 to 88 with a T4).

Current Top 10 in the Fed Ex Cup standings:

  1. Hideki Matsuyama 1,697
  2. Justin Thomas 1,627
  3. Jordan Spieth 947
