It's playoff time on the PGA Tour.

The Barclays kicks off the FedEx Cup playoffs at Bethpage Black, and two storylines dominate the excitement. With loaded tournament fields each week, the player of the year race comes to a climactic close, in which the likes of Jason Day, Henrik Stenson and Dustin Johnson are the favorites.

Alan Bastable joined Sean Zak on the GOLF.com Podcast to discuss the merits of each player's season, but it doesn't stop there. The conversation delves into the second storyline of the week: the 2016 Ryder Cup.

In the podcast below, each prospective captain's pick is discussed, including why Rickie Fowler and Jim Furyk should not be locked in to make the team. If you've got the Ryder Cup itch, scratch it by listening to the discussion below.
