    COURSE: Sedgefield Country Club (Ross), 7,127 yards, par 70. The lone Donald Ross design to serve as a regular PGA TOUR stop, Sedgefield opened in 1925 and was one of two courses used for the inaugural Greater Greensboro Open in 1938. Later years saw the event return to Sedgefield in alternating seasons, before a 16-year run as host from 1961-76. The 1965 edition was the last of Sam Snead’s record 82 PGA TOUR victories; in the boardroom, the Atlantic Coast Conference was founded at Sedgefield in 1953. Following a 2007 restoration to its original specifications, the TOUR’s annual Greensboro stop returned to its roots after a 31-year hiatus.

    FIELD WATCH: Jim Furyk, making his first start since his historic 58 at the Travelers Championship, and new PGA Championship king Jimmy Walker headline the lineup for the final event before the FedExCup playoffs. … Rickie Fowler, Patrick Reed, Spain’s Rafa Cabrera Bello and New Zealand’s Danny Lee all head right back into competition after playing in the first Olympic tournament in more than a century. … In all, 10 of the top 30 in the world rankings will tee it up at Sedgefield. … Wesley Bryan, who earned a “battlefield promotion” after his third Web.com Tour victory this season, gets one more chance to take advantage before the playoffs. … Ditto for Jon Rahm, who’s finishing the season on special temporary status, and Lee McCoy, who’s playing on a sponsor exemption

    • 72-HOLE RECORD: 259, Carl Pettersson (2008).

    • 18-HOLE RECORD: 61, Carl Pettersson (2nd round, 2008), Arjun Atwal (1st round, 2010), Kevin Na (3rd round, 2010), Tim Herron (2nd round, 2012), Brandt Snedeker (2nd round, 2015).

    LAST YEAR: Davis Love III became the third-oldest winner in PGA TOUR history, using a 6-under-par 64 on the final day to overtake Jason Gore by the finish. Love began the day four shots behind Gore, but quickly made up the deficit with an early string of four birdies and an eagle. An eagle at the par-5 15th moved Love in front, and he left the final green with a two-shot advantage over Gore and Scott Brown. Both cut the gap to one, but couldn’t get any closer. Victory for Love came at 51 years, 4 months, 10 days, just three months behind Art Wall’s 1975 triumph at Milwaukee. Sam Snead’s last of his eight Greensboro titles at age 52. It also was Love’s third in Greensboro and first anywhere since the 2008 Disney stop. Tiger Woods came to Greensboro in a last-gasp shot at the FedExCup playoffs, but a closing 70 ended his season.

    STORYLINES: Though Furyk, Walker and the Olympians will draw plenty of attention, the weekend focus will shift to those seeking to punch a ticket to the FedExCup playoffs by moving into the top 125 on the points list. … All but 11 of the players ranked Nos. 91-190 in points are entered, with Bronson Burgoon (124th), Johnson Wagner (125th) and Matt Jones (126th) on the bubble. … Farther back, you’ll find such notables as Hall of Famer Ernie Els (158th) and two-time major winners Retief Goosen (135th) and Angel Cabrera (183rd).

    SHORT CHIPS: … A year ago, Love and Gore were the only players to move inside the top 125 in points. They were just the second and third players in FedExCup history to arrive from outside No. 140 to start the week. … Sedgefield now has seen come-from-behind victories in consecutive years, with 2014 winner Camilo Villegas also prevailing from off the 54-hole pace. Before that, five of the previous six winners had taken the lead to the final round.

    11.5 TOTAL hours of TV coverage. That’s like watching the first 7 minutes of an NFL game and that’s all you get.

  • whodat2

    It was really refreshing to watch Olympic golf from opening shot to the end on TELEVISION.

  • Frustrated

    NBC and Fox really killed it with coverage with the big events this year. NBC with The Open and The Olympics and Fox with the U.S. Open. Wish we got that kind of coverage every week.

  • smallANDflaccid

    I am home all this week so I can actually watch.

  • flip4flop

    three dreadful weeks in a row, hopefully that can change this week.

    At first glance there appears to be some decent value in the bottom third of the pricing just based on recent form. Guys like Varner and Tringale jump off the page to me considering how cheap they are, but I’ll reserve final judgment until later tonight when I actually sit down and look over stats.

  • nevergymless

    My boys , Harman, Chez,Castro and Levin are cheap as fuck .

    DK has a Red Cross Relief contest for Louisiana flood victims for PGA this week. Well worth pitching in $10 for Jim’s tourney and $10 to benefit those folks who lost everything.

    Aces salaries just came out: Adam Hadwin is the 4th highest salary, Derek Fathauer is 10th. Odd to say the least.

  • Jpitten

    Draftkings took down their salaries?

    Forget it. App glitch

  • Dewoc19

    Is there somewhere where you can find stats on previous tournament players and how the ranked in specific categories in relation to the field

    Ex – if I wanted to know what rank Sneds was in GIR last year at this tournament or what rank Nasty Yams was in driving accuracy. Just using these as examples, not necessarily the players or stats I’m using for this year

    Finally glad we get a euro tournament again. I’ve really missed them the last few weeks. Talk about tv coverage they got that part figured out. No st is a bummer but still good golf

    Another note on coverage I loved how fox tried to show every birdie from all players they were constantly bouncing back and forth. Was very entertaining and it was almost like they did it for the dfs crowd.

    Will be hard to pass up Holmes at that price.

    He’s been a little too inconsistent as of late for me to take. I’d rather go with Keegan for 100 more or Dufner for 200 less.

    His form is horrible and probably his course fit as well. But he always seems to pop at random times.

    Dk dropped the ball on Simpson pricing. He is in the chalk dust zone. I was hoping he would be so high priced I wouldn’t have to question the fade. Now it’s much harder

    But will people go with Webb? This seems like a stars/scrubs type of week with some pretty good values in the low 6k and 5k range. I can see people just going with Reed, Rahm, Snedeker, Rickie, and Furyk over him. It may be one of those things that people don’t want to pay more than 10k for him, especially with Walker, Sneds, and maybe even Hatton priced lower.

    Webb was a circled player at any price for me

    what are we looking at for key stats here? feeling more like an accuracy course?

    Him and Haas are my 2 favorite plays of the week. I’m just wondering if people will go with bigger names in that price range than Webb. I just have a feeling he will be lower owned than we think; which would be perfectly fine with me. Of course, I could be wrong too.
