Pro Golf Weekly is starting a new feature where we highlight the biggest movers in the season long FedEx Cup standings. We’ll also keep a close watch on the bubble and the players languishing outside the cut line.
- Jimmy Walker’s one shot victory moved him from 50th to 14th in the standings. His best finish in the FedEx Cup came back in 2013 when he won three times on tour and finished 7th in the standings.
- Robert Streb’s T-7 finish, his first Top-10 this season, moved him 24 spots in the standings, from 112th to 88th. Last year he finished 18th in the standings.
- Following his second Top-10 in the majors this year, Daniel Summerhays moved from 57th to 39th in the standings.
- Padraig Harrington clinched his best finish in a major since the 2012 US Open. He went 65 – 68 over the weekend to finish T-13. He moved from 140th to 129th in the standings.
- Jason Day’s runner-up finish helped him move back to the top of the FedEx Cup standings. He’s now 34 points ahead of Dustin Johnson.
Players to Watch at the Travelers
- A wrist injury has kept Jim Furyk out for much of the season. He’ll need to play catch up as he ranks 118th in the standings.
- The 2011 PGA Champion, Keegan Bradley, has missed cuts at half of the 22 events he’s played this year. With only four Top-25’s this season, he ranks 117th in the FedEx Cup standings.
- Paul Casey’s T-10 finish last week moved him into the Top-70 of the standings, at 69th. Casey had an interesting major season, with missed cuts at the British and US Opens, and T-4 at the Masters.
- Italian Francesco Molinari had a decent outing at the PGA Championship, finishing at T-22. It helped him move into the Top-100 in the standings, at 97th.
- Ernie Els has struggled big time this season and has just one Top-10 to show for it. He’s lying 159th in the standings and needs a good week at the Travelers.
