The PGA tour playoffs kick off at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee for the St. Jude Championship. The Top 70 in the standings are making their way to the first leg of the playoffs.
This year, instead of the top 125, the new PGA Tour format has reduced the field to 70. This tournament will knock out the bottom 20 sending the top 50 to the BMW Championship in Chicago.
Last week at the Wyndham Championship, we had some serious drama surrounding the top 70. Two of the top and most well-known players on tour were flirting with that line all weekend.
Headlined by Justin Thomas. He had a chance to make Birdie on the 18th to make the tournament, but he hit the stick on a chip and missed out by one swing. Also, Adam Scott just missed the playoffs for the first time in his career.
He was right on the line as well and gave himself a chance with a 64 on Sunday.
With those two stars missing the playoffs, we will finally have a field full of stars for the first time since The Open Championship. Jon Rahm is still in first place going into St Jude, despite not having his best stuff for the last 6-8 weeks.
He is trailed by Scottie Scheffler, who has won twice this year and finished in the top 25, 19 times this year. Rory Mcilroy is playing for the first time since The Open Championship as well.
PC Southwind, par 70, 7,243 yards. The Ron Prichard design was established in 1988, with Hubert Green and Fuzzy Zoeller as player consultants.
This spring marked the course’s full conversion to Zeon Zoysia grass (the last were Nos. 1, 2, 16, and 18) while some fairways were re-contoured after new internal drainage was added.
The course boasts numerous lakes, streams, and ponds and features the added charm of two-grain silos and a windmill – remnants of a dairy farm formerly on site.

Can Rory repeat as champion of the FedEx Cup?
No one has won this in back-to-back years, but with Rory sitting in third, he has as good of a chance as anyone ever has.
