The first event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs gets started August 24 - 27, 2017, at a new venue and new sponsor. The top 125 players in the FedEx Cup standings will qualify for the event, but only 100 players will make it through to the second playoff event in Boston.
Northern Trust will replace Barclays as sponsor through a five-year agreement that renames the tournament THE NORTHERN TRUST and maintains its position as the opening event of the FedExCup Playoffs.
With this move, Northern Trust will not renew its sponsorship of the Northern Trust Open at The Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles once the current contract expires after the 2016 tournament. It has sponsored the Northern Trust Open since 2008.
The new venue is Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury, New York. It’s an old school layout with tree-lined fairways and small, undulating greens. No one knows too much about the track and their isn’t any course history.
Past Champions include Adam Scott, Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Jason Day and most recently, Patrick Reed.
The first of four FedEx Cup Playoff tournaments gets underway this week from Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury, New York. Only 120 players are in the betting field and the top 100 will advance to next week’s second playoff event.
