PGA Tour FedEx Playoffs: And Then There Were 70

0

This week the PGA Tour moves from New York to Illinois for the BMW Championship at Medinah Country Club No. 3 near Chicago. This week’s field is chopped from 125 to 70 — next week’s further slashed to 30. Kevin Na has withdrawn, reducing the BMW field to 69. Brooks Koepka’s at the top of board, Patrick Reed is No. 2 after yesterday’s win and Joaquin Niemann squeezed in at No. 70.

Patrick Reed
Reed moves from No. 50 to 2 in the FedEx Cup rankings with the win at Liberty National Golf Course, the first of three FedEx Playoff events

It’s a list marked with interesting 2018-19 seasons. Players such as Adam Scott at No. 14 with no wins, but seven quiet top 10’s this year. Abraham Ancer is in eighth position and the 49-year-old Jim Furyk still battling in the 48th spot. Players hovering around No. 30 will battle to make the season’s final event in Atlanta — Tiger Woods included at No. 38, who’s coming off a oblique strain withdraw in New York.

There will be another slash following this week’s event at Medinah — the
Tour Championship field in Atlanta at the final event of the season will be cut to 30.
