Those who have been looking at the playoffs and the performance of the different players in these, they will also realize that many who have a possibility of winning the millions at the end of the FedEx playoffs will also be part of the team for President’s Cup.
Indeed, the top ten contenders are already known that include several names such as Kevin Kisner, Kevin Chappell, Daniel Berger and others. Charley Hoffman is another first timer who nearly made the list, but he got bumped when Chappell made the list. However, the team captain Steve Stricker might still consider him as he has two picks of his own among the players available and qualified.
Many state that Phil Mickelson would be the other pick by the captain as Lefty tied for the sixth position at the TPC Boston tournament and reduced his chances considerably. Stricker might go outside these evident names and look at others, such as Brian Harman, who has had a tough year, Patrick Cantlay who has played well, but in limited ways while Tony Finau was perfect with the four balls. Among the Internationals there are certain players such as Adam Hadwin who secured the tenth position or others like Emiliano Grillo or Hideto Tanihara.
There are certain players who ended their season at the Boston championship as they failed to retain their position in the top 70 as per the points they gathered. These are names like Adam Scott, Harold Varner III, Bubba Watson, Chris Stroud, Patrick Rodgers and others. McIlroy has been battling a rib injury that made him a non factor when the playoff opening events started. He could not avail of the title defense opportunity as well at TPC Boston. His season will soon come to an end and it remains to be seen how he performs at the BMW championships.
