Notes: Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk will make three of his four wild-card picks after the tournament. … European Tour players in the field cannot count any world ranking points from this event to the Ryder Cup standings. … This is the second of four FedEx Cup playoffs events, culminating with the Tour Championship. The top 70 in the FedEx Cup advance to the third playoff event next week outside Philadelphia. … Rickie Fowler is taking another week off to rest an oblique injury. He is No. 22 in the standings and could fall out of the top 30. … Rory McIlroy makes his first playoff event appearance this year. … Tiger Woods fell five spots in the FedEx Cup standings to No. 25. He won at the TPC Boston in 2006 and was runner-up in 2004 and 2007. … Brooks Koepka has another shot at replacing Dustin Johnson at No. 1 in the world. Koepka trails by a narrow margin. … After this year, The Northern Trust will alternate years between Liberty National in New Jersey and the TPC Boston. … The tournament began in 2003 and was run by the Tiger Woods Foundation. … Jordan Spieth tied for 25th last week and moved up 10 spots to No. 33. He has never missed the Tour Championship in his previous five years on tour.

Next week: BMW Championship.
