Former Tiger Justin Thomas finished tied for 16th at -5 at The Barclays this weekend in the opening round of the FedExCup Playoffs. Thomas shot a fourth round 3-under par on Sunday.

Thomas earned 214 FedEx points for finishing tied for 16th which puts him in 30th in the FedExCup rankings going into the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston next weekend where the top 100 golfers in the world will square off.

Here is an explanation of the playoffs from PGAtour.com:

The Playoffs feature a progressive cut, beginning with The Barclays in the New York/New Jersey area (125 players), continuing with the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston (100 players) and the BMW Championship in Chicago (70 players). A reset takes place, seeding the top-30 players for the culminating TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in Atlanta, where the FedExCup Champion is crowned.

Anyone up for a road trip to Boston?

Go Tigers!
