SEASON IN REVIEW: Garcia ended a four-year PGA TOUR victory drought in a big way when he won the Wyndham Championship, the final event of the Regular Season, and played his way onto the European Ryder Cup team. The Spaniard nearly made it two-in-a-row, taking the lead into the final round of The Barclays only to be passed by Nick Watney and finish third. Garcia took the next week off and returned to the Playoffs to tie for 24th at the BMW Championship. -- Helen Ross

EAST LAKE HISTORY: This is Garcia's seventh start in the TOUR Championship, and his first since 2008, when he finished second. He also finished fourth in 2007 and tied for second in 2001.

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at Garcia:
Still a curious decision to take a week off and skip Deutsche Bank when he was playing so well. Very few players improve their putting to the extent Garcia has this year. That's very impressive to me.
