GolfWRX is live this week from the first event in the 2014 FedEx Cup Playoffs – The Barclays at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, N.J. The course will play as a par 71, measuring 7,319 yards for the event.

The top 125 players on the FedEx Cup points list qualified for this week’s event, and the top 100 will move on to the Deutsche Bank Championship, the next leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Leading the points list are Rory McIlroy (No. 1 in FedEx Cup points), Jimmy Walker (No. 2), Bubba Watson (No. 3), Matt Kuchar (No. 4) and Jim Furyk (No. 5).

McIlroy, the world’s No. 1 ranked player according to the Official World Golf Rankings in addition to FedEx Cup points leader, is looking to win his fourth straight appearance, which includes two major championships (The Open, PGA Championship).

Adam Scott, ranked No. 2 in the OWGR and No. 14 in the FedEx Cup points standings, comes into this week as the defending champion, having held off Tiger Woods and Justin Rose at The Barclays last year at Liberty National. Although Scott won The Barclays, Henrik Stenson went onto win the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and the $10 million prize.

Check out our photos from The Barclays, the first event at the 2014 FedEx Cup Playoffs.

    owwww the 915d5, I heard that they were making a few prototype models for specific players, this being Adams Scotts 400cc?? Would love to play a new small headed driver, I have a Dymo 380cc now and bomb it when im swinging well.

    What’s with the super stroke grip on an iron for Kevin Chappell? Seems strange no?

      Was thinkin same! Possibly helps his feeling of keep flat left wrist at impact?

    Would love to see if Rory put the Vapors into play. Can’t imagine he would given the run he is on, however they did have the big unveiling the other night with Tiger and Jimmy Fallon.

      I was thinking the same thing. Highly doubtful he would make any change until after the season – if then even – given the run he is on. To me, the Vapors do not seem like tour clubs. I saw pics a few weeks ago of the Nike MMProto’s, a limited edition forged Nike iron set. Not sure if those are related to the Vapors or not, but many tour pros are starting to test those according to this article:

        You know nothing, Shawn, so shut it. The Vapors are awesome irons.

        The MM Protos were the Vapor prototype. Vapor Pro is same club, albeit more colorful. They also re-did the pro-combo and added a cast “speed” GI iron based on the same design.

    Did anyone else notice Charles Howell III using MP15 irons with KBS shafts!!!! Wow – he was MP64 with X100 previously.

    Really like those all gray TM putter. So nice when they stick to one head color. I think the TM haters population is going to go down quite a bit. Love their TP irons, SLDR are solid, Ultimate DI looks cool, new darker counter balance putters are way better than the easily chipping white ones. I was suprised in a good way by the jetspeed(with the right shaft). Gotta say the stand bags were so ugly this year.

      Yes, I also love that all-grey putter.
