The popular Northern Ireland golfer, now world No 6, will be looking for his first victory in the prestigious European Tour event, having finished runner-up in 2009, 2011 and 2014.

Being a New Yorker … I was like, the eclipse? Really?
A watchdog group sued the federal government for records of Mnuchin's trip on the suspicion of "misuse of government resources". Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has demonstrated a unique ability to draw negative headlines.

Also confirmed is world No 16 Tommy Fleetwood, and a classic line-up of major winners, including Darren Clarke, Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington, Martin Kaymer, Paul Lawrie, Graeme McDowell and Danny Willett, plus current Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn and vice-captain Robert Karlsson, who won the tournament in 2008. Bill Haas is No. 30 and has a 24-point lead over Canadian rookie Mackenzie Hughes.

Even now, with his game once again clicking and a smile back on his face, Jason Day sometimes shakes his head in disbelief when recalling the performance he authored at Conway Farms Golf Club two years ago.

But Day need only look back to previous year for a source of inspiration, as Rory McIlroy flipped a mediocre season on its head with a pair of postseason wins that netted the FedExCup title. It's an ebb and flow for players at the top level, all of whom vacillate throughout the year while trying to find the sparse middle ground that yields both ample focus and a sufficiently loose approach. Sergio Garcia is No. 34.

He is 51st in the FedEx Cup standings and needs to be in the top 30 to reach next week's Tour Championship, where the victor gets a $10m bonus. Henrik Stenson missed previous year while deal with a knee injury. This is the 37-year-old's fifth appearance in the FedExCup era, first since T31 in 2011. Stenson in 2015 also was runner-up in the opening two playoff events. He tied for second and advanced to the Tour Championship for the first time, leading to his first appearance in the Masters.
