FedEx Cup Playoffs 2021: Standings, schedule, format, Strokes, Prize money, Venues, Last winner.

The PGA Tour 2020-21 regular season is over. 

Now, It’s time for the Postseason.  The FedEx Cup Playoffs consist of three events, capped off by the Tour Championship, Tour postseason Playoff golf is here again as everyone is positioning themselves for the $15 million grand prize money at the end.

 After 47 events of 2020-21 PGA Tour season (including six major champ's), the longest regular season in PGA Tour history has ended and the three-week postseason is here. 

The FedEx Cup Playoffs start this week with The Northern Trust, followed by the BMW Championship and big-money Tour Championship at East Lake, which wraps up the entire 50-event season.

The idea behind the FedEx Cup playoffs when they began in 2007 was for players to be at their best during the postseason chase for a cash bonanza — $10 million for the winner back then, $15 million now, rising to $18 million next year.
