Next up on the PGA Tour Fedex Cup tournament schedule is the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at the historic Pebble Beach Golf Links in northern California.
The event can be watched on the Golf Channel, and CBS on Sunday.
The 35 year old Ted Potter Jr (then 34) won the event last year after posting a weekend of 68 | 71 | 62 | 69 | 270 to win by 3 strokes over runner-ups Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, and Phil Mickelson. It was the second tour win of Potter Jr’s career.
Note that the winner of this even will recieve 500 Fedex Cup points and the first place cut of a purse valued at $7.1M.
Heading into the week, 2018 runner up Dustin Johnson ranked number 1, in front of Jason Day and Brandt Snedeker for the top power rankings spots.
Rain along with “hurricane like winds” ravaged the course over the weekend, and took out one of the upscale hospitality structures off the left side of the number 6 fairway.

The storm also caused minor damage to some sky suites, knocked down a tree near the 17th tee and tore apart the giant video screen along the 18th green, according to Golf Channel.
The course itself sustained no major damages and is expected to be in fine playing shape by the start of the event.
