Welcome to the FedEx Cup Playoffs, folks.
This week, the top 70 in the standings are in Memphis, Tennessee, for the FedEx St. Jude Championship at TPC Southwind.
Will Zalatoris, who captured this title last year for his first win on the PGA Tour, is not in the field as he continues to work back from an injury that forced him to withdraw from the Masters earlier this season.
Scottie Scheffler is the betting favorite at +650, followed by Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm at +900. While Rahm tied for fifth at TPC Southwind last season, both Scheffler and McIlroy missed the cut.
Come Sunday afternoon, the top 50 players in the standings will move on to next week’s BMW Championship at Olympia Fields outside Chicago.
The winner in Memphis will receive 2,000 FedEx Cup points.
