After a compelling weekend at the Wyndham Championship that saw 51-year-old Davis Love III capture his first title since 2008 and an unsuccessful last ditch effort from Tiger Woods, the field is finally set for the FedEx Cup Playoffs on the PGA Tour.

These 125 players will compete next at The Barclays, which starts this Thursday at Plainfield Country Club in Edison, New Jersey. Points are quadrupled for the playoff events, meaning that the winner will receive 2000 points.

Following The Barclays, the top 100 will move on to the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston from September 4-7.

After a week off, the top 70 will compete at the BMW Championship at Conway Farms in Lake Forest, IL. There is no cut at this event.

The season concludes as the top 30 players vie for the title at the Tour Championship, held once again at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta. Players lucky enough to be in the top five at the time will control their own destiny. Any participant in the top five can claim the FedEx Cup with a win at East Lake.

It's been a long road, but the payoff has finally arrived for these 125 players. As seen in the past, anything can happen, and anybody can win. One thing is certain. We're in for a lot of great golf from the best players in the world.
