FedEx Cup playoffs, first tournament begins

In the United States, on a golfing level, this is referred to as the most awaited moment of 2022. The FedEx Cup playoffs are now three tournaments, and no longer four, but they always maintain a great charm. The best 125 are those who battle it out on three fields of particular fame: only one will be proclaimed champion of the PGA Tour for the 2021-2022 season.

The FedEx Cup playoffs, schedule

We start with the FedEx St. Jude Championship, which since 2007 has been part of the approach to the Tour Championship, where the 30 best of the American circuit arrive. But part of the tournament has already begun: not on the greens, but in the courtrooms, as the battle between the former players who have passed through LIV Golf and the PGA Tour itself continues undaunted.

In the last few hours, the news is that Talor Gooch, Hudson Swafford and Matt Jones, the three players who had applied to play at TPC Southwind in Memphis (par 70) this year will not be able to do so. An American federal judge, in fact, rejected what is an offshoot of a wider legal debate in the hands of the antitrust of the States, with 11 players contesting the moves of the PGA Tour (that is, among others, no tournaments for those who marry the Saudi project), led by Phil Mickelson.

This leads to an extremely varied picture of the situation relating to the favorites both of the tournament and in absolute line. For many, however, the important thing will not only be doing well here, but also qualifying in the top 70 area of ​​the playoffs standings, which is worth access to next week’s BMW Championship.

Of course, the prize pool for both of them of $ 15 million as an incentive, and it could not be otherwise, is hardly debatable as an argument. Not by chance, we are talking about a field with all the best in the world in the week when the rules of engagement for the world ranking change.

The programming of Eurosport 2, Discovery + (Eurosport Player) and GolfTv is substantially identical in terms of timing, and is as follows: Thursday 21: 00-01: 00, Friday same times, Saturday 19: 00-00: 00, Sunday 18:00 -00: 00.

Below is the entire list of qualified players (among which there are some absent, which is why the field will be at 121 and not at 125).
