After an exciting few weeks to finish up the regular season, the 2023 FedEx Cup Playoffs will get underway this week just outside Memphis, Tennessee, with the FedEx St. Jude Championship. The now annual start to the postseason, Will Zalatoris took home the inaugural victory last season, beating Sepp Straka in a playoff shootout.
Though Zalatoris is now sidelined with an injury, Straka and 69 of the other top players on the Tour will tee it up this week, with the bottom 20 being cut from postseason play. One of those players who narrowly made the top 70 cut is Lucas Glover, who scored a victory last week at the Wyndham to find himself in this week’s field and inside the top 50. Notably absent from this year’s edition will be star Justin Thomas, whose slump down the stretch ended up costing him a spot in the playoff race.
Let’s look at the top five guys I have on my card this week.
