Notes: This is the start of the PGA Tour’s postseason. Points are four times the value (2,000 points to the winner), and the top 70 advance to the BMW Championship next week. … Scottie Scheffler goes into the FedEx Cup playoffs as the No. 1 seed. He has led the FedEx Cup the last five months of the season. … FedEx St. Jude began as a regular PGA Tour event, then was given World Golf Championships status and now takes over as a playoff event when Northern Trust chose not to renew its title sponsorship. … Tony Finau won last year at Liberty National in New Jersey. He has won his last two starts going into the postseason. … Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar are the only players to make it to the postseason every year since the FedEx Cup began in 2007. … Nine players who signed with LIV Golf finished in the top 125. They did not count against the 125 who qualified. … Rickie Fowler earned the last spot in the field. … Daniel Berger and Lanto Griffin (injuries) and Tommy Fleetwood (personal) are not playing.

Charles Schwab Cup leader: Steven Alker.

Last week: Jerry Kelly won the Shaw Charity Classic.

Notes: Steven Alker and Jerry Kelly are the only three-time winners this year on the PGA Tour Champions. … Alker still leads the Charles Schwab Cup points list. He is nearly $550,000 ahead of Kelly, and it would take two more wins for Kelly to replace him. … Kelly has had multiple wins in four seasons on the PGA Tour Champions. … Padraig Harrington won the U.S. Senior Open, was runner-up in the Senior British Open and finished one stroke out of a playoff last week in Canada. The Irishman is No. 3 on the money list, with nearly $1.7 million in just nine starts. … John Huston won in his third start on the PGA Tour Champions in 2011. He has gone 141 starts over 11 years without a win. Huston lost in a playoff to Kelly last week in the Shaw Charity Classic. … Dean Wilson, the Hawaii native with one PGA Tour title, played his first PGA Tour Champions event last week since 2020. He tied for third. … Fred Couples is in the field. He grew up on public courses in the Seattle area.
