SEASON IN REVIEW: The affable Englishman decided to re-join the PGA TOUR after watching the FedExCup Playoffs on TV last year and feeling like he was missing out. Westwood has posted top-10 finishes in half of his 14 starts in the States this year, including the first two majors and two of the three Playoffs events. His tie for second at the BMW Championship gave him a big boost as he moved up 23 spots in the FedExCup standings as he heads to Atlanta for the first time. -- Helen Ross

EAST LAKE HISTORY: This will be Westwood's first start at East Lake.

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at Westwood:
Here's your dark horse. Westwood has been gathering momentum under new short game coach Tony Johnstone. Might have won last week's BMW Championship if not for hitting a couple of strange chips on Sunday at Crooked Stick. Might be peaking at the right time.
