This is the final tournament before the start of the FedExCup Playoffs, with the top 125 players in the standings qualifying for the first event. All of the players ranked between Nos. 122-135 are in the 156-player field other than Lucas Glover (No. 133). … Sergio Garcia (No. 131) is playing for the fifth consecutive week as he attempts to qualify for the playoffs. The Spaniard missed the cut at all four majors in 2018 and has failed to reach the weekend in seven of his past 11 worldwide starts. Garcia has dropped to a season-low 25th in the world rankings. Garcia and Bill Haas (No. 150) are among 13 players to have qualified for the playoffs in each season. … Four players qualified for the playoffs at the Wyndham in 2017: Martin Flores, Rory Sabbatini, Harold Varner III and J.J. Henry. … Stenson set the tournament scoring record at 258 last year. He is skipping the Nordea Masters in his home country of Sweden to defend his title. … The late Jarrod Lyle, who passed away last week after a lengthy battle with leukemia, last competed on Tour at the Wyndham.
