The FedEx Cup playoffs get rolling Thursday at The Barclays with most of the top 125 golfers of the 2013 season on hand.
The event, which makes a return to Liberty National Golf Club for the first time since 2009, is the first of four tournaments that will ultimately determine the 2013 PGA Tour champion and the fortunate winner of $10 million.
While winning is still the ultimate goal at The Barclays, there will be a competition inside the competition this week.
Led by playoffs leader Tiger Woods, the golfers at the top of the rankings will be looking to solidify their positions in the FedEx Cup, while golfers in the bottom quarter of the draw will be looking to punch a ticket to next week’s Deutsche Bank Championship outside Boston.
