NOTES

PGA: The top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings qualified for the event. The top five -- Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Nick Watney, Phil Mickelson and Brandt Snedeker -- can take the $10 million FedEx Cup prize with a victory. The other 25 players have a chance to win the playoff title with a victory, but would need help from the players at the top of the standings. ... The Ryder Cup is next week at Medinah in Illinois.

LPGA: Jiyai Shin, who won the Women's British Open last week, is not playing this week. Top-ranked Yani Tseng is in the field along with Lexi Thompson, Stacy Lewis, Suzann Pettersen, So Yeon Ryu, Brittany Lincicome and Michelle Wie.
