The top 30 players in the FEDEX Cup race are in Georgia at the East Lake Golf Club to determine the $10 million dollar winner. There is currently a three way tie at the top at four under par. Geoff Ogilvy, Luke Donald, and Paul Casey all turned in rounds of 68 on the opening day. Matt Kuchar, coming into East Lake as the points leader and playing excellent golf, is six shots back after a two over round. With $10 million to play for it will be interesting to see how Kuchar reacts to the pressure.
Noticeably absent is Tiger Woods who failed to qualify for the years final event, before the Fall Finish starts. The top European and American players will also be playing in the Ryder Cup in less than a month.
