Course: Olympia Fields CC (North)

Cut: None
Field: 69 Players (Goes down to 30 after this week)
Defending Champion: Justin Thomas

By all indications Olympia Fields has been set up like a major venue this week, with a premium on putting the ball in the fairway. Should the weather cooperate and scores reflect that difficult setup, we should be in for a very entertaining weekend. Webb Simpson is the only player to pull out of this weeks event, which leaves 69 players vying for 30 spots in next weeks Tour Championship.
A few of those who will need good weeks to continue their playoff push include: Tiger Woods (57th), Jason Day (50th), Patrick Cantlay (37th), and Tony Finau (29th). Only six players were able to jump into the top-70 from outside the number last week; I’d expect that number to be even lower this weekend. Dustin Johnson looks for back-to-back wins after a scorching performance at The Northern Trust, coming into this week at #1 in both the FedEx Cup Standings and the World Golf Rankings.
Whichever golfer leads the playoff points race at the conclusion of the BMW will start next weeks finale 10 strokes under-par and two-strokes ahead of his nearest competitor.
