Editor's note (Tuesday, Aug. 23): Will Zalatoris withdrew Tuesday due to a back injury. If all 29 players complete 72 holes, he will finish 30th. The 30th position will receive $500,000 FedExCup bonus money. No one else’s Starting Strokes will be affected with his WD (i.e. no one will be at -7).

Golf’s ultimate prize hangs in the balance as the PGA TOUR season wraps up with the 30-man TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club. Scottie Scheffler, the four-time winner who led the FedExCup standings for much of the season, returned to the top spot with a T3 at the BMW Championship, while reigning FedExCup champion Patrick Cantlay moved into the No. 2 spot with his successful title defense at the BMW. He would be the first back-to-back FedExCup winner.
FIELD NOTES: Under the unique Starting Strokes format, top-seeded Scheffler will begin the TOUR Championship at 10 under and with a two-stroke lead as he heads into the finale of the 2021-22 TOUR campaign… Cantlay will be two back and looks to become the first golfer to win consecutive FedExCup titles, making history for the second straight week. He won the BMW to become the first golfer in the FedExCup era to successfully defend a title during the Playoffs.. Will Zalatoris will be ranked third, three behind, heading into the season finale. After capturing his first TOUR title at the FedEx St. Jude Championship, Zalatoris withdrew from the BMW citing a back injury… Aaron Wise and Adam Scott made pars on the 72nd hole at the BMW to earn the final two spots in the TOUR Championship… Scott Stallings made the biggest leap into the TOUR Championship field. He started the BMW week at No. 46, but a solo second at the BMW saw him get to No. 12 in the FedExCup standings. This is Stallings’ first trip to East Lake in his 12-year career… KH Lee also moved inside the top 30. JJ Spaun, Joohyung “Tom” Kim, Davis Riley, and Kevin Kisner were bumped outside the top 30… Xander Schauffele will be ranked No. 4, four back, while Same Burns will be ranked No.5. Cameron Smith, who did not tee it up at the BMW due to injury, will return at the TOUR Championship ranked No.6.
FEDEXCUP: Winner receives the FedExCup.
COURSE: East Lake Golf Club, par 70, 7,346 yards. Every FedExCup champion (from 2007-onwards) has been crowned at East Lake, the host club of the TOUR Championship every year since 2005. Tom Bendelow was the original architect, while both Donald Ross and Rees Jones have had their hands on the storied Atlanta layout in the last century. The home course of Bobby Jones, East Lake is the oldest golf course in the city of Atlanta. The course played to a stroke average of 68.62 last season.
STORYLINES: The full field, and more details on how they got there, can be found here… Rory McIlroy closed with three straight birdies at the BMW Championship and will head into the TOUR Championship ranked No.7 in the FedExCup standings. McIlroy, who will start six shots behind, is looking to become the first golfer to ever win the FedExCup three times… Cantlay is looking to become the first to defend his FedExCup title… Ten golfers will be making their debuts at East Lake including rookie Sahith Theegala… Scheffler had held the No.1 spot in the FedExCup standings every week since March, but after missing the cut at the FedEx St. Jude Championship, he was briefly overtaken by Will Zalatoris… The winner of the FedExCup will take home $18 million… Adam Scott started the Playoffs at 77th but finished T5 in the first two Playoffs events to earn a trip to East Lake.
72-HOLE RECORD: 257, Tiger Woods (2007).
18-HOLE RECORD: 60, Zach Johnson (3rd round, 2007).
LAST TIME: Patrick Cantlay had a one-shot lead going into the 72nd hole of the 2021 TOUR Championship and nipped a 6-iron to 12 feet to lock in a win of golf’s ultimate prize. Cantlay started the week at 10 under and ended up at 21 under as he survived a tough battle with then-No. 1 Jon Rahm. Cantlay two-putted for birdie on the 18th hole at East Lake, and when Rahm couldn’t chip in to force a playoff, the tournament – and the season – was over. Cantlay’s one-shot victory was his fourth of the season. Kevin Na finished third, Justin Thomas finished fourth, and Viktor Hovland and 2017 TOUR Championship winner Xander Schauffele (who shot the round of the day Sunday, a 6-under 64) tied for fifth.

Here are the resets, I went straight down and did not use groupings because we do not have a full 30 people obviously.

Reminder, it is your starting score combined with the scores of your players that gets the win
For example, if Tom's 4 players shoot a combined -40 , his total would be -50 for the week

Here is a Link for points reset in FedEx Cup instructions

Let me know if you have any questions

Good Luck to everyone this week

Wait, now I've gotta do math as well?? I guess it won't be too hard, though, since I am starting at -0-. zilch, nada, n-o-t-h-i-n-g...Perhaps I should have paid more attention in 9th grade algebra instead of watching the Varsity Cheerleading captain apply her mascara in class. :oops:

Somehow I screwed that up last year. Thanks for the refresher.
Congrats to Tom. Bradenton is representing !
speaking of representing, Philip Knowles had a 1 shot lead going into the final hole of the Korn Ferry Tournament.
But he bogeyed the last hole and lost in the playoff. Philip grew up here. His dad and I played golf together at MHS and the Bradenton Country Club. There are 2 tournaments left and Philip still has a shot a getting his tour card. Wish him luck.

Congrats to everyone here for making this one of the best boards on Rivals; every year, it's been a blast. If I had only never heard of TGW, I might have done better, but I gave it a hell of a ride until collapsing this week.

And congrats to DFS' cuz for making it to East Lake as well.

And a special round of applause, please, for the commish, without whom we'd not even know the others on here existed. Yeoman-like work, good sir!

Guess I"ll throw caution to the winds and go with:

Matsuyama
Schefrler
Spieth
Stallings

Wow, a great chance to get an early lead--or an early deficit.

The question on everyone's mind is: Does Cam Smith play or announce for LIV ?

I see "Terrible Tom" Weiskopf died over the weekend; he had one of the prettiest swings ever.

When I was a kid, my brother and I followed Tom and his partner in the old two-man team PGA event that they used to have at Disney World. It was a best-ball event; he played with some guy named Nicklaus. On about the 14th hole, TW hit a big pull-hook into the woods. Everyone was tromping around in the woods looking for it, and it was found some 25 yards deep in the woods by 11 year-old SeaPA. Since it was best-ball, he tried to play it out; tells the caddy "gimme a 5 iron.", he takes a big lash, ball hits a tree, and went 15 or 20 yards deeper into the woods. Another search begins, and it's found by my brother. He looks it over, looks at the caddy & says "gimme a 3 iron." Another big lash, another tree, deeper into the crap. Jack looks at Tom's caddy & says "give him an axe!" They laugh, Jack says "I'm in the middle of the fairway, I can handle things from there, let's go."

RIP, Tom.

TWRM It's going down

ATLANTA - Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy’s TMRW Sports today announced TGL, a new tech-infused golf league in partnership with the PGA TOUR. TGL will showcase team matches fusing advanced tech and live action from a custom-built venue in primetime on Monday nights, which will complement the current PGA TOUR schedule. Woods and McIlroy are the first two golfers committed to compete and the league’s inaugural season will kick off in January 2024. The announcement was made today by Woods, McIlroy, and TMRW Sports CEO and founder Mike McCarley.


TGL, the golf league of TMRW Sports, will feature:
• Teams:
Six teams of three PGA TOUR players;
• Tech-Infused Venue: A first-of-its-kind experience for golf enabled by a data-rich, virtual course complete with a tech-infused, short-game complex;
• Tech-Enabled Fan Experience: High-energy, greenside fan experience with every shot live within a 2-hour, primetime televised match;
• Season: 15 regular season Monday night matches followed by semifinals and finals matches, kicking off in January 2024


I think it would be classic if the Tour Got DJ and Bryson and maybe Bubba, Oosty and a couple of other guys back and left the LIV to self destruct.

Great story ! We must be of a similar age.
