Notes: This is the start of the PGA Tour’s postseason. Points are four times the value (2,000 points to the winner), and the top 70 advance to the BMW Championship next week. … Scottie Scheffler goes into the FedEx Cup playoffs as the No. 1 seed. He has led the FedEx Cup the last five months of the season. … FedEx St. Jude began as a regular PGA Tour event, then was given World Golf Championships status and now takes over as a playoff event when Northern Trust chose not to renew its title sponsorship. … Tony Finau won last year at Liberty National in New Jersey. He has won his last two starts going into the postseason. … Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar are the only players to make it to the postseason every year since the FedEx Cup began in 2007. … Nine players who signed with LIV Golf finished in the top 125. They did not count against the 125 who qualified. … Rickie Fowler earned the last spot in the field. … Daniel Berger and Lanto Griffin (injuries) and Tommy Fleetwood (personal) are not playing.
