The top five players on the PGA Tour this season should be plenty rested going into the FedEx Cup playoffs. Most of them haven't played since the PGA Championship three weeks ago. Jason Day is the No. 1 player in the world and No. 1 in the FedEx Cup, narrowly moving past U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson on the strength of his runner-up finish at the PGA Championship.

Brooke Henderson is the face of Canadian golf. Lydia Ko is a big hit, too - and every bit as comfortable. ''I feel when I come to Canada, it feels a lot like New Zealand, feels a lot like home,'' Ko said Wednesday, a day before the start of play in the Canadian Pacific Women's Open.

(Reuters) - Rory McIlroy has set his sights on finishing a so-so season on a strong note as he prepares this week for The Barclays, the first of four FedExCup events that conclude the 2015-16 U.S. PGA Tour. "I'm trying to judge my year on wins," McIlroy told reporters on Wednesday at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, New York. Obviously the two missed cuts at the majors were very disappointing, especially the way I missed the cuts." The Northern Irishman missed the cut by two strokes at the U.S. Open in June and by just one shot at the PGA Championship last month.

(Reuters) - World number one Jason Day and second-ranked Dustin Johnson launch their title bids at The Barclays on Thursday amid longer-term hopes of securing the PGA Tour's season-ending FedExCup and Player of the Year honors. The Barclays, won last year by Australian Day, is the first of four lucrative FedExCup events that conclude the 2015-16 schedule with a playoff bonus of $10 million going to the overall champion. Once the season is over, the PGA Tour rank and file will vote for their Player of the Year where Day, a three-times winner in 2016, and American Johnson, a double champion this year, are the top two contenders.
