Stenson in Wyndham lead

Hole #11 at Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury NY Hole #11 at Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury NY

The four-tournament FedEx Cup playoffs begin with the top-125 finishers qualifying for this week's Northern Trust event in NY.

Stenson's birdie on 17 briefly had a 2-shot lead but Schniederjans, playing one group ahead, almost holed his second shot on the par-4 18th and tapped in for birdie, leaving Stenson ahead by one. There were no holes-in-one during the tournament's first three days.

Jones could have made the top-125 with a strong showing but fell to 152nd and will have to contest the secondary Web.com finals, where he can win his way back to the main tour. For instance, he played just one event in each of February, March and April. Showing why he is the highest-ranked player in the tournament, Sweden's Stenson finished the way he started his round, with string of four birdies over six holes. However, when the chips were down, Stenson dug deep. Ten holes later, he posted an eagle on No. 15.

"When I stuffed it (on No. 18), I thought that's probably going to be a playoff", Schniederjans said.

"I have had a fantastic career, better than I could ever have dreamt of". He has climbed to sixth place on the Official World Golf Ranking. And it paid off in spades for the Swede. Former Wyndham victor Webb Simpson was at 63 along with Cameron Smith, Vaughn Taylor, Tim Wilkinson, Harold Varner III, Brian Campbell and Sam Saunders.

Stenson said he left his driver in his locker all week - "he's a little anxious to get out there and start getting some air time next week", he quipped of the club - and certainly didn't need it on the par-70 Sedgefield course. "And for more guys on tour, it's not every week that you have a chance to win". Afterward, he revealed the emotions that drove him to take the lead in the golf tournament - an accomplishment in and of itself for the veteran. Fine players one and all, but hardly likely to set the pulses racing.

He saved par on the final hole after hitting into the fairway rough.

And it got better when Siem battled his way through to the final to take on Otaegui, a rapidly-improving young Spanish golfer. It should have surprised nobody that Otaegui reached the final as he arrived at the Beckenbauer Course having recorded four successive top-20 finishes. Sandwiched in between was a bogey on the par-four fourth.

He recorded another birdie on the seventh hole, a Par 3, and went into the back nine at six-under.

"I didn't realise how much I wanted it until I turned up this week and felt how I felt on the first tee", said Ogilvy. "I didn't start very well at the beginning".

Stenson trusted his shot-making ability and touch around the greens.

"I hit a lot of good shots out there", Stenson told Sky Sports. 3-5, then added another on No. 7 and three more on the back nine. I just wanted to keep fighting until the end.

Armour was in a four-way tie for first place with his birdie on No. 16. It was 160 into the wind. Johnson Wagner was 14 under after a 65. I'm really upset, it's really disappointing. "I showed that today".

ENDICOTT, N.Y. - Scott McCarron had two eagles in an 11-under 61 on Saturday to join Kevin Sutherland atop the Dick's Sporting Goods Open leaderboard. We had been working on it as things did not work out last few weeks.

"It's been a while since I won", he said, "so I think I'm ready". "That was my motivation".

Simpson hasn't won on the tour since 2013. He played in the pairing in front of Stenson.

Stenson began the round with a 1-shot lead.
