Here we go … 125 players with $15 million on the line. In just three weeks, we will have a new FedEx Cup and Tour Championship winner.

Last year's champ, Dustin Johnson, is also looking to defend his 2020 Northern Trust title, which he won by 11 strokes at 30 under at TPC Boston. It was the largest margin of victory on tour 15 years dating back to a Phil Mickelson in 2006 at TPC Sugarloaf. DJ also has the opportunity to become the first back-to-back FedEx Cup champion, as he starts in 17th place in the points standings.

Along with Johnson is a who’s who of tour pros including Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Jon Rahm and Collin Morikawa. Morikawa leads the FedEx Cup points standings heading into this week at Liberty National, and he is looking for a win at East Lake to accompany his two major victories.

Fifty-five golfers will be eliminated after this event before a field of 70 takes on the BMW Championship, and, yes, The Northern Trust is the only one of the three playoff events with a 36-hole cut.

The winner of this event will receive a $1.71 million share of the $9.5 million purse.
