Notes[edit]

  1. ^ This tournament was originally scheduled to be a 72-hole event that would conclude on September 10, 2017; however, it was decided that the tournament would be shortened to 54 holes, and given a Saturday finish, in order to accommodate players who wished to play both in this tournament, and the Evian Championship in France the following week.[2]
