THE NORTHERN TRUSTAugust 22, 2017

2017 Northern Trust tee times, viewer's guide

Last October, the PGA Tour season kicked off in California at the Safeway Open, where Brendan Steele earned the first victory of the season. Ten months, four majors, four World Golf Championships and 35 PGA Tour events later we've reached the FedEx Cup Playoffs, the final four events of the season. The top-125 in the FedEx Cup standings take on a new challenge this year, Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury, N.Y., which is hosting its first Northern Trust, formerly known as The Barclays.

Over $8 million is up for grabs this week, as well as quadruple the FedEx Cup points players would normally receive in a regular season event. Hideki Matsuyama comes in at the top of the standings, but close behind are the top players in the world, including Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson. Defending FedEx Cup champion Rory McIlroy is also in the field this week, as well as defending Northern Trust winner Patrick Reed.
