Patrick Reed and Phil Mickelson were among the early arrivals as Charley Hoffman and Kevin Chappell joined to practice. Mickelson is the only American that did not feature in the Tour Championship though. The Americans had gathered on Sunday at the hotel to celebrate Justin Thomas’ FedEx Cup win.

For now the captains, assistants and caddies are doing more of the work scouting the rerouted layout. The American team had captain Steve Stricker, assistant Davis Love III and their caddies moving around the layout, same as the International captain Nick Price and assistant Mike Weir.
