FedEx Cup Part 2

Last week saw the second round of the FedEx Cup playoffs. 50 players played it out for the 30 spots in the tour final with the $18 million dollar prize pot. For some players it was about just making the top 30 whilst others were trying to get as high as possible to get the best start. If you are not aware first place starts -10 and then it drops down from there to level par at 30th.

Before the competition started the worlds top 3 where 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Scottie and Rory had a decent competition but Rahm was never in contention. Going into the final day Scheffler was joint leader with Matt Fitzpatrick with a number of big starts just a few shots back. Both Fitzpatrick and Scheffler looked to be keeping themselves out on front before Victor Hovland produced one of the finest back 9's in PGA Tour history.

Hovland shot a brilliant 61 with just 28 strokes on the back 9. He had eight 3's and just one 4, which was a birdie, on the back 9. He had 12 3's in total for his round. It was the lowest round in FedEx Cup playoff history and a new course record.

Hovland's victory has helped him jump up to 2nd in the FedEx rankings with Rahm moving down to 4th. It should be a very interesting tour championship finals.
