The coronavirus-abridged PGA Tour regular season is over, and now the best players in the game will begin the playoff push for the FedEx Cup title at the 2020 Northern Trust. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the event.
Northern Trust preview
The field at the Northern Trust is one of the strongest all year, featuring the top 124 players in the FedEx Cup standings. By week’s end, only the the 70 of those players will earn the right to continue the playoffs at next week’s BMW Championship, so the stakes are high.
One pro who doesn’t have to worry about advancing is Collin Morikawa, The 23-year-old star captured his first major championship at the PGA Championship, and he already has three Tour wins in his young career, including two this season. Those victories, along with his impressively consistent performance throughout the year has earned him the No. 2 spot in the FedEx Cup standings to start the playoffs.
Morikawa will play the first two rounds alongside the No. 1 and No. 3 players in the FedEx standings: Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson, respectively.
Tiger Woods is also back in action this week, coming off a disappointing T37 finish at the PGA Championship. This will be Tiger’s third start since the PGA Tour returned from the coronavirus hiatus. Because of his time off, Tiger sits at 49th in the FedEx standings, which means he’ll need a decent performance to ensure a spot in next week’s playoff event.
