A week after No. 62 Hunter Mahan won the Barclays Championship, No. 30 Ryan Palmer took the early lead at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Friday in Norton, Massachusetts.

Palmer fired an 8-under 63 to open up…

It seems unlikely that Henrik Stenson will win the 2014 FedExCup title, but that was also the opinion a year ago going into the Deutsche Bank Championship (DBC)  in Boston.

Stenson won that event, of course, and the TOUR Championship two weeks later in Atlanta, to lock up the FedExCup. He’s one of a trio of winners in the last…

First the bad news for Barclays champion Hunter Mahan. Only one golfer in the seven-year history of the FedExCup has won both the first tournament of the four-week playoff and the overall title.

That man? Vijay Singh, who won the Barclays and the Deutsche Bank Championship in 2008 en route to the title.

Now the good news for Mahan. Of the…

If Jim Furyk is ever going to break his 0-for-7 swoon when leading a tournament after 54 holes, this would be the time to do it.
Furyk is tied with Australia’s Jason Day at 9-under through three days of the Barclays, the opening leg of the 2014 FedExCup playoffs.
A win here would have Furyk as a major contender for…

Adam Scott was No. 1 in the world for a lot of 2014 despite not winning any of the four Majors. But a FedExCup title wouldn’t be so bad either.
Scott fired a 65 on Friday to tie Cameron Tringale for the lead after 36 holes at the first leg of the four-week playoff series.
Scott is the defending champion of…

Bo Van Pelt was on the cast of supporting actors for this first tournament of the FedExCup playoff season, coming into the field ranked No. 104 of the 125 men qualifying for the post-season string of action.

If he keeps putting together rounds like he did on Thursday, Van Pelt might get his part expanded to leading man.

The Barclays kicks off the 2014 FedExCup playoff season hoping for as dramatic a finish as last year, when Adam Scott edged four players – including 2013 Masters winner Justin Rose and Tiger Woods – by a single stroke in a field that saw 15 players finish within five strokes of the lead.

Scott is no less a favorite this…

It’s likely Sang-Moon Bae’s parents told him growing up about the problem of waiting until the last minute to do things; but they likely never said anything about waiting until the final hole.

Bae finished strong at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday, giving himself a six-spot boost in the final regular-season FedExCup standings, which was enough to get him into…
