No. 2 (Justin Rose) finishes tied for eighth or worse.

Here are the breakdowns of the huge prize money on the line in the PGA's Tour Championship and FedExCup purses for 2018. He has also secured a top-five spot in the Tour Championship next week, and anyone in the top five who wins that event automatically wins the FedEx Cup and a $10 million bonus.

"I was in control of my own destiny and didn't have it this week", said United States Ryder Cup team member Spieth.

The Queenslander posted third-place results in the opening two events of the playoffs but couldn't sustain his momentum at the BMW Championship.

Spieth and Emiliano Grillo were the only two players who fell out of the top 30. "But that second round. you can't shoot over par here and that threw me so much (further back)".

After close to 50 events in the regular season, which includes PGA Tour events, World Golf Championships and the majors, the top 125 players in the FedEx Cup standings made their way to the Northern Trust for the first round of the playoffs, where Bryson DeChambeau vaulted to the top of the standings with a record-setting win at Ridgewood Country Club. "A really solid round today is the difference of potential outcomes where I could do better".

Keegan Bradley's first victory since 2012 saw him make the biggest move of the week, jumping from 52nd into sixth spot, while Xander Schauffele's share of third took him up 23 places into 18th.

It is surprising to see the PGA tour cut a playoff event, because those tournaments are some of the most thrilling and they generate the most excitement and viewership other than the four majors.

Last year, Spieth met the 1 in 4 rule and played 24 times.

He needed to make the Tour Championship field to get to 25. Instead it starts on Friday and gives the PGA Tour a chance to have center stage during a holiday weekend by finishing on Labor Day.

"I assume it will either be a fine or I'm adding some in the fall, " Spieth said. I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one [new event] every year.
