Three of the four Baylor alums playing on the PGA Tour will tee it up in the FedEx Cup Playoffs which began Thursday, August 23.
Luke List '03 (pictured, top left) finished the PGA Tour's regular season in 29th place in the FedEx Cup standings, Keith Mitchell '10 (bottom left) finished 68th, and Harris English '07 (right) was 124th, just making the top 125 players that qualify for the four-week competition. Stephan Jaeger '08, the fourth Baylor alum on the PGA Tour, was 165th in the FedEx Cup standings.
The month-long championship event begins with The Northern Trust, played at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey. Each weekly tournament pares the field down until the final 30 players vie for the Tour Championship at Atlanta's famous East Lake.
Baylor is only the second high school in the country to ever have three alums playing in the FedEx Cup playoffs. Milton High in Florida had Bubba Watson, Heath Slocum and Boo Weekley during the first four year's of the event (2007-10).
List and English were part of last year's playoff with List advancing as far as the third tournament, the 70-player BMW Championship.
