FedEx Cup Update Following The Honda Classic

Michele Sandberg/Icon Sportswire

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.

Hideki Matsuyama took the week off and Justin Thomas missed the cut at The Honda Classic, but they remained Nos. 1 and 2 in the FedEx Cup standings. Jordan Spieth also took the week off and remained in third place.

Rickie Fowler’s win at PGA National vaulted him up 48 spots from No. 58 to No. 10 in the FedEx Cup standings and up to No. 9 in the Official World Golf Rankings.

The biggest movers this week were Morgan Hoffmann +122 (from 170 to 48), Chad Collins +80 (from 202 to 122) and 2010 U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell +32 (from 164 to 132).
