ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “At this point in the year it's so important to be rested, to me. I had a couple days there I went to Chicago from PGA, spent a couple of days with my girlfriend, just relaxed, went to my first Cubs game. And I had some media stuff I had to do in New York and then went on Fallon. I've just been home since then.”

BRAIN TEASER: This player has 91 total rounds under par in the FedExCup playoffs, which is one less than Jim Furyk with 92. He has played 60% (91 of 151) of his rounds under par in the playoffs and could get to the 100th round mark at the BMW Championship. Who is he?

KEEP HOPE ALIVE! 58 players in the field of the Northern Trust are currently within 2,000 points of the #1 ranked Dustin Johnson (last season 38 players were within 2,000 points of Hideki Matsuyama) and can in turn potentially move to #1 with a victory this week at the Northern Trust. Jimmy Walker is the last player (61st position) who could possibly take over the #1 position should he be victorious. The 125th position currently owned by Seamus Power, is 2,340 points behind first place going into the first round of the playoffs and could move as high as 3rd with a victory.

Entering the 2009 Northern Trust., Heath Slocum ranked 124th in the standings. His victory vaulted him 121 spots to 3rd and secured a spot at the TOUR Championship (largest move in the 11-year history of the FedExCup Playoffs).  Last Season, Bubba Watson was the biggest mover in any event of the 2017 FedExCup Playoffs moving from 113th to 72nd (41 positions) at the Northern Trust.

In 2016, Sean O’Hair moved from 108th to 15th with his t-2 finish at the Northern Trust. O’Hair moved up 93 spots ranking as the 2nd largest move in any event in FedExCup Playoff history.
