There are Masters contenders all around the park in Augusta National this year. Tiger Woods is back in form, but so are the young guns lead by Justin Thomas

Aug 21, 2018: The postseason has arrived. Now it’s time for the PGA TOUR’s best to compete for the FedExCup.

Every postseason participant has a chance to take home the TOUR’s season-long crown. With FedExCup points quadrupled in the Playoffs, players in the back of the pack can make a Cinderella run. The regular season’s strongest performers still have an advantage, though.

The top 125 in the FedExCup standings are eligible for THE NORTHERN TRUST, which begins Thursday at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey. The top 100 will advance to next week’s Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston. Then 70 players will compete in the BMW Championship at historic Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.

The Playoffs field will be pared to 30 for the season finale, the TOUR Championship at Atlanta’s East Lake Golf Club on Sept. 20-23. While every player in the TOUR Championship field can still win the FedExCup, the top 5 in the standings can clinch the Cup with a win at East Lake.
