The Greenbrier Classic features five of the top-10 players in the FedExCup standings, including the top 2 in Jimmy Walker and Bubba Watson.
Waker, a three-time winner in the 2013-2014 wrap-around season, leads the reigning Masters champ by 239 points. So depending on Sunday's outcome, there could be a change at the top of the standings for just the second time this season.
Also at stake are four spots in The Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. The top four players not otherwise exempt among the top 12 finishers on Sunday earn the invitations to the game's oldest major thanks to the Open Qualifying Series.
