The FedEx Cup Playoffs start this week and for the first time since

early in the season, I’m trying to climb back into positive money

territory!

The rules: each picker will get a simulated $200 to bet;

$100 of which will be on win bets and another $100 on top-5, top-

10, and top-20 bets only. The kicker this time is that the money

can only be spent on a maximum of three golfers in each

category. Picking winners has never been so difficult (except for

Parlay Kid).

Here are this week’s plays for THE NORTHERN TRUST:
