Bill Haas is grinding harder than ever in the FedEx Cup playoffs, only the immediate goal has nothing to do with a $10 million bonus. Haas is No. 11 in the Presidents Cup standings. The Deutsche Bank Championship, which starts Friday, is the final event for the top 10 players to earn automatic spots on the U.S. team for the Oct. 8-11 matches in South Korea.

Rory McIlroy will be able to compete in the Race to Dubai even though he will fall short of the minimum 13 tournaments required by the European Tour. Keith Pelley, the new chief executive of the European Tour, says he consulted with McIlroy and medical officials before agreeing to make an exception for the world's No. 1 player. Players are required to play 13 to be eligible for the Race to Dubai.

Jordan Spieth has missed three cuts on the PGA Tour this year, and The Barclays rated the most irritating for one reason. It was Spieth's first tournament as No. 1 in the world, and now he's No. 2. Listening to the top players last week made it clear that only one tournament - The Tour Championship - really matters if they want to win the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus.

Once among the most popular stops on the PGA Tour schedule, Trump National Doral had more players grumbling than ever. ''I just went over some changes to make it more friendly for guys who hit it my length instead of it being a bomber's paradise,'' said Brandt Snedeker, among those who offered reasonable suggestions. The changes are mostly about the bunkers on six holes - Nos.

Jason Day, so poor as a kid that he shopped at a store where he stuffed as much used clothing as he could into a bag for $5, is trying not to think about the potential of a $10 million bonus for winning the FedEx Cup. Day, so cocksure as a teenager that he talked about being No. 1 even before he was a PGA Tour rookie, is trying to keep his mind off the possibility that he could rise above Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth and claim the top spot in the world ranking. Fresh off his first major title at the PGA Championship, Day used that frightening blend of power and putting to bury another world-class field at The Barclays.

Jordan Spieth was gone, but not forgotten, certainly not by Jason Day. In his debut as the No. 1 player in the world, Spieth had back-to-back rounds over par for the first time all year and missed the cut. This was Day's first tournament since he became the first player in a major to reach 20-under par in beating Spieth by three shots at the PGA Championship.
