Tracking local golfers in the FedEx Cup playoffs

This week: The Barclays, Thursday through Sunday, Plainfield Country Club, Edison, New Jersey.

In the field: Puyallup’s Ryan Moore and Olympia’s Andres Gonzales.

World rankings: Moore is 43rd, and Gonzales is 264th.

FedEx Cup playoff seedings: Moore is 25th, and Gonzales is 108th.

2014-15 earnings: Moore has $2.58 million (27th on the PGA Tour), and Gonzales has $925,335 (107th on the PGA Tour).

The skinny: This will be the ninth consecutive season Moore has advanced to the FedEx Cup playoffs. And this tournament — the first one he played in after turning professional in 2005 — seems to have his number, no matter where it is held. He has missed the cut at this tournament in five of the past eight seasons, including last year (5-over-par 147). … Gonzales is in the playoffs for the first time. To advance to the next round, the Capital High School graduate would need to finish no lower than 45th place this week.

Tee times Thursday: Moore at 10:06 a.m. (PDT), and Gonzales at 10:28 a.m. Both go off the 10th tee.
