It's playoff time on the PGA Tour.

The FedEx Cup playoffs begin this week with the St. Jude Championship at TPC Southwind in Memphis. The 122-player field will contain three Baylor School alums, with each having posted his best regular season finish in the FedEx Cup standings.

Luke List, who won the Farmers Insurance Open in late January, enters this week 29th in the standings, while Keith Mitchell, who has six top-10 placements, is 36th. Stephan Jaeger has qualified for his first playoff run after finishing 90th, and he is the hottest of the three.

After earning his first career top-five finish by claiming fifth at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit late last month, Jaeger used a closing 8-under 62 this past Sunday to earn a tie for 13th at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina.
