The storylines are bountiful. Foremost among them is the spillover from last week’s slow play blowup centered around Bryson DeChamebau. Brooks Koepka got roped into that brouhaha as well, and he’ll try and stave off contenders for his No. 1 spot in the FedEx Cup going into next week. Tiger Woods will need a tremendous effort over the final three days to play the last event of the year.
Remember, with a reformatted Tour Championship, the top few spots after this week will be invaluable. Whoever ranks first in the FedEx Cup will start the Tour Championship at 10 under. Whoever is second will be 8 under and so on until you get to the bottom five of the top 30, who will all start the Tour Championship at even par. Every shot matters this week at Medinah.
Play begins Thursday in the penultimate event of the 2018-19 PGA Tour season on Medinah’s 7,657-yard, par-72, No. 3 course. The BMW field features 69 of the top 70 players in the FedEx Cup Standings. The top 30 players in the standings after Sunday will move on to Atlanta for the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake.
Medinah has played host to the 2012 Ryder Cup, three U.S. Opens and two PGA Championships.
Tiger Woods won both PGA Championships at Medinah – in 1999 and 2006. He finds himself again playing a leading role in the PGA Tour melodrama this weekend. Woods is 38th in the FedEx Cup Standings.
Woods won the Tour Championship last year on a thrilling Red Sunday, ending a 5-year victory drought. He may not make it back to defend his title. He needs to finish solo 11th or better in the BMW to extend his season.
