NOTES
The final event before the playoffs kicks off this week at Sedgefield Country Club. The FedExCup Playoffs start next week and there are some big names fighting for their spot in the playoffs. Among the top names playing this week will be former major champions Angel Cabrera, Ernie Els and Padraig Harrington. All three are outside the 125 on the FedExCup points list with Cabrera being the furthest away from qualifying at No. 150. Camilo Villegas enters the week as bubble boy, as he is No. 125. He will be in the field as will Justin Leonard and Paul Casey, who are both in the 140s on the points list. As we found out last week, Tiger Woods is skipping the event and therefore will miss the FedExCup Playoffs. Last year, Arjun Atwal opened with a nine-under 61 and followed with three more rounds in the 60s to win by a single stroke over former PGA Champion David Toms. Atwal, who matched the course record with his 61, won for the first time on the PGA Tour. He was the first Monday-qualifier to win a PGA Tour title since Fred Wadsworth won the 1986 Southern Open. He will be joined in the field by former Wyndham winners Brandt Snedeker, Rocco Mediate, Carl Pettersson and Davis Love III. Including Love, there are 16 former major champions competing this week. Sedgefield hosted this event 10 times from 1938-57, then every year from 1961-76. This is the fourth straight year the event is back at Sedgefield after Forest Oaks hosted the tournament from 1977-2007. Sam Snead won this title eight times between 1938 and 1965. That 27-year span is a record for the most time between the first and last victories for a player at the same tournament. When he won the title in 1965, Snead became the oldest winner in PGA Tour history at 52 years, 10 months and eight days. Golf Channel and CBS will have coverage of all four rounds this week. The FedExCup Playoffs start next week as Matt Kuchar will defend his title at The Barclays, which will be contested at Plainfield Country Club this year.
