Second round of the FedEx Cup Playoffs this weekend. Olympia Fields Country Club in Illinois is hosting the event for the first time.

 

Justin Thomas is the defending champion, winning last year's tournament which was played at Medinah Country Club.

 

Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson have both won this event twice in the past. After obliterating the field last week, it'll be interesting to see if DJ can keep it going this week. Tiger, on the other hand, will likely need a Top 5 finish to have a realistic chance of making it to the Tour Championship.

 

Olympia Fields has hosted some big time tournaments in the past, most recently the 2017 Women's PGA Championship and the 2015 U.S. Amateur, which was won by Bryson DeChambeau. Before that, it has hosted two PGA Championships, in 1925 and 1961, and two U.S. Opens, in 1928 and 2003. It also hosted the 1997 U.S. Senior Open.

 

Hopefully, it'll be another great week of golf.

Did the USGA change the venue for the US Open and didn't tell anyone?  Wadda U mean an old course can't challenge the best players in the world anymore?

Just caught up... holy cow.     Good finish for Team Taylormade.  Going to be “OK” next week... maybe.  Looks like several of the top players will be peaking come US Open time.  That’s when the

Just caught a few highlights, I don’t think I’d want to play on that course in these conditions... but after last week and the -30, they had to do something... 🙄

Its always odd from back to back wins so I would expect DJ to come back to earth this week, but still should be a fun week for sure.

I expect Morikawa to play well, and I think Patrick Cantley and Jason Day will move into the Tour Championship.

Well, I did it again.  Thought Morikawa and J Day would be up there.  +6 for both!!  But it's still early.  At least I was right about Cantley making a move this week.  But again, it's early.

If the course conditions don't get any easier this could play like a 4th major. Not surprising since the course has hosted majors before.

This course has hosted a US Open. All it takes is firm conditions, heavy rough, wind and a good golf course.

The roar of the crowd from past years' great shots woke me up from my nap.

All the players looked “whipped” after these 3 long days.
I missed most of the TV coverage but saw last hour. Going to be interesting tomorrow. I think DJ might pull it out.

DJ looked a little frustrated with the putts, but so did everyone.  If he can figure it out, I like his chances.

However, I think someone in the +1 or +2 groups could post a number that holds up.  Like Rory or Adam Scott.  I don't think anyone further back has a chance.

Matsuyama that dog!!!!!! Aghhhhh where were you the past six weeks? :)

I hope either he wins at -2 or Dustin at even because nothing would be cooler than the same guy winning back to back weeks with a 30 stroke differential between the 2 winning scores.

And I hope we all recognize that I was kidding on my opening remarks.
