    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.

    Kevin Kisner n shit

    EAGLE

    what a day

  • Feibla22

    Kisner unconscious right now

  • kdsdawg

    I have a L/U that is ranked 64th as of now, thanks Kisner…hoping for Castro not to ruin his bogey free round on #18
    I have Barber, Snedeker, Bello and Furyk left

  • timusbr

    kim is throwing darts, he scrambled like a champ so far this weekend, I havnt seen to many golfers play this well all year.

  • walkoff9

    Kisner 6 Birdies, an eagle, and 0 bogeys.

    He’s going to fall back from his T2 once the top guys get scoring, but still an amazing run.

  • walkoff9

    Going to be a winning week despite 9/18 of my players missing the cut. (counting levin as MC)

  • timusbr

    Furyk has one of worst RC records – they want new blood

    I don’t disagree he is worthy of a pick but I doubt it happens

  • timusbr

    holy chit batman, my 1 entry to the birdy is 3 pts from the money. go matsuyama dufner and sneds. it looked like it never had a chance for the big board

  • GhostaVeli8701

    Did Kisner really blow the bogey free round on 18!?

  • timusbr

    way to go sneds 3 birdies in a row and im in the money…. LOL for now anyway

  • KJP24

    Na with the popped collar, nice one

  • RangerC

    This tournament… 4% 6/6, 4% on the leader. Have T2 ×3, T6, T11 (last guy was 47th but was A4U70) and I don’t even know if I have a path to the top 10 let alone a win. Gross.

  • JimKronlund

    - Looks like no one will catch Kim. – Having 3 Aces really sucks for us who dont have them. – Need Kim to hiccup (which is not going to happen). – Mats, Na, or Sneds need to create a miracle on the greens and beat him. – 37 teams in the money but none low enough to make much noise.

  • MattNielsen89

    Weird week. Ready for next week already.. Not fun when your 4/6 has Webb Simpson sucking it up lol.

  • Zieg30

    Most weeks, having a 6/6 team with golfers at -11, -12, -13, -13, and -15 would win some serious money. Not on this course, however. Not today.

  • walkoff9

    Anyone have the list of guys who can get the all four rounds under 70 bonus?

    RCB looking like hes going to blow it.

  • Dewoc19

    Haas triple on the par 5, that’s gonna hurt me

  • Pickle29

    RCB looking like hes going to blow it.

    Si Woo, Snedeker, Na, Donald, Furyk, Stegmaier, Wagner, Matsuyama, Horschel, Stanley, Cauley, McDowell, Kelly, Garnett, Haas, Garrigus, Aiken, Fowler, O’Hair, Wilkinson, Chalmers, Blixt, Streb, Hadwin, Owen, Kirk, Moore,

    I think that’s everyone. I might’ve missed someone, though.

    It’s a real long list 20+ guys

    I already got it from Kirk, Moore and Streb

    Hadley, Lucas Lee, Pinckney, Malnati and Prugh blew it
    RCB, Haas and Wilkinson on course and trying to blow it – most others still on course with a chance look to be -2 or better today

  • MattNielsen89

    Fucking Haas, seriously.. That bonus was one of the only things giving me hope of cashing in the League 50/50. Now no chance. Shit. What a shit week. I’m on a rough patch the last 3 weeks. Need to turn it around ASAP.

  • Dewoc19

    Haas in full blown meltdown mode, kinda helps me but hurts at the same time, sort of glad he blew the bonus though, less people I have to worry about getting it now even if it does take me off the list

  • BIF

    LOL Si Woo, he’s gonna bogey 5 holes on the way in and still win without breaking a sweat – at least he won’t be a huge runaway winner in DK Pts if this bogeying keeps up.
