NOTES:The PGA Tour travels to Paramus, New Jersey, this week for the first
week of the FedExCup Playoffs at The Barclays. The top 125 players in the FedExCup standings are eligible to play this week. Rory McIlroy is first on the FedExCup points list with 2,582; Jimmy Walker is second with 2,493; Bubba Watson is third with 2,172; and Matt Kuchar is fourth with 1,921.

McIlroy, Walker and Watson will be paired together for the first two rounds of the tournament. McIlroy is playing for the first time since winning his second straight major and fourth of his career at the PGA Championship two weeks ago. McIlroy is going for his fourth consecutive win. He has won the British Open Championship, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship in his last three starts.

The number of players will be cut to the top 100 on the points list following this week for next week's Deutsche Bank Championship, 70 for the BMW Championship and 30 for The Tour Championship. The FedExCup champion will receive $10 million, the largest single bonus payout in sports. Three players who qualified for this tournament are not playing this week. They are Dustin Johnson, Jason Dufner and Steve Stricker.

The tournament will be played at Ridgewood Country Club for the third time. Ridgewood also hosted in 2008, when Vijay Singh won, and 2010, when Kuchar captured the title. The 2009 and 2013 event was held at Liberty National Golf Club. The 2012 event was held at the Black Course at Bethpage State Park. Plainfield Country Club hosted in 2011. The tournament had been held at Westchester Country Club in Harrison, New York, the first 41 years.

Last year, Adam Scott carded a 5-under 66 in the final round, then watched several potential challengers fall just short as he hung on for a 1-stroke win over four players. Scott claimed his second win of 2013 at 11-under-par 273. Scott's other victory last season came at the Masters, which was his first career major title.

Dustin Johnson fired rounds of 66-63-65 in 2011 to win the weather-shortened event. He finished at 19-under-par 194, good for a 2-stroke win over 2010 champion Kuchar. The tournament was shortened to 54 holes due to Hurricane Irene.

In 2010, Kuchar birdied the first playoff hole to defeat Martin Laird and win the first playoff event of 2010. Kuchar fired a 5-under 66 in the final round and was the only player to post four rounds in the 60s for the week. He was the first in at 12-under 272 and Laird, the third-round leader, joined him after an even-par 71 that ended with a 3-putt bogey on 18.

Heath Slocum poured in a 21-foot par putt on the 18th hole in 2009 to claim a 1-stroke win over four players. Slocum's closing par denied a possible playoff that would have included Tiger Woods, Stricker, Ernie Els and Padraig Harrington. Slocum shot a 4-under 67 in the final round to end at 9-under-par 275.

In 2008, Vijay Singh birdied the second hole of a thrilling playoff to defeat Sergio Garcia and Kevin Sutherland, and capture the title. Singh became the first 4-time winner of this event, having previously won in 1993, 1995 and 2006. Jack Nicklaus, Garcia, Els and Seve Ballesteros have each won twice. Singh is the all-time money leader at this event with $3,922,381 in earnings.

Stricker birdied four of the last five holes in the final round in 2007 to come back and defeat K.J. Choi. Stricker completed his fourth PGA Tour title at 16-under-par 268. His last win anywhere prior to this title came in 2001 at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Garcia became the youngest champion of this event in 2001. At the age of 21, Garcia passed Jack Renner, who was 23 when he won the 1979 Buick Classic.

The PGA Tour travels to Massachusetts next week for the second week of the FedExCup Playoffs. A field of 100 players will compete at the Deutsche Bank Championship, where Henrik Stenson will defend his title at TPC Boston.
