With all four of the majors complete, it's time to look toward the FedEx Cup playoffs, the PGA Tour's version of the postseason.
The first playoff event is The Barclays, which is taking place at the Ridgewood Country Club in New Jersey this year. The top 125 players in the FedEx Cup points standings qualify to play in the event, but with Jason Dufner, Steve Stricker and Dustin Johnson all sitting out, this year's field will officially be 122.
With Rory McIlroy on a roll, Phil Mickelson discovering his form just in time and Adam Scott coming in as the defending champion, the 2014 Barclays tournament is setting up to be a fantastic one.
So forget all that talk about the golf season being over—in reality, the fun is just beginning. Here's what you need to know to get ready for The Barclays.
