PARAMUS - Rory McIlroy isn't just biding his time for the next seven months until the Masters and his chance to complete the career Grand Slam.
 
Next up is the FedEx Cup and its $10-million bonus.
 
The FedEx Cup playoffs got underway Thursday in Paramus at Ridgewood Country Club with The Barclays. The tournament is the first of four contests in which the field size will be reduced each week until 30 players reach the finale at East Lake for the Tour Championship.
 
McIlroy has won his last three tournaments - two of them majors - and at No. 1 is starting to get some separation from the rest of golf.
 
He is the top seed at Ridgewood, but given these playoff events are worth five times the value of a regular PGA Tour event, that could be gone in one week.
