The FedExCup Playoffs kick off this week in Tennessee with the eagerly anticipated FedEx St. Jude Championship, hosted just outside Memphis – a city with a rich history of hosting PGA TOUR events dating back to 1958. The top 70 players have advanced to this first Playoffs event, showcasing a star-studded field including notable names like FedExCup leader Jon Rahm, PLAYERS champion Scottie Scheffler, and defending FedExCup champion Rory McIlroy. Other prominent contenders include Max Homa, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, and Patrick Cantlay, among others. The victor of the championship will be rewarded with a substantial 2,000 FedExCup points, a significant stride towards FedExCup glory.
Unfavorable weather conditions marked the opening day of the FedEx St. Jude Championship, necessitating the rescheduling of tee times and split tees for players. The second round is projected to follow a similar pattern, with players commencing their rounds starting at 11:15 a.m. ET.
Current tournament leader Jordan Spieth holds a one-shot advantage after a remarkable opening-round score of 63, equalling his personal best round this season.
