Patrick Reed won the Wyndham Championship on Sunday and jumped from No.78 to No.22 in the FedEx Cup rankings. His win couldn’t have come at a better time, with the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs getting underway this week with The Barclays.
Reed’s jump up the ladder by more than 50 spots would put him into the Tour Championship if the standings were to end today. But of course, things are just about to heat up with the number of points on the line for a FedEx Cup playoff win increasing tenfold. Continue reading
There are just two events remaining until the start of the 2013 FedEx Cup playoffs. It just so happens that two huge events stand between now and those playoffs, which could affect the standings quite a bit.

Tiger Woods will play with Nick Watney and Rickie Fowler this week for the first two rounds at the Farmers Insurance Open. This will be Woods’ first event on the 2013 PGA Tour. The No.2 ranked golfer in the world did play last week at the HSBC Championship, but missed the cut by one shot.
He comes to a venue in Torrey Pines though, in which he has won seven times in his career. The most notable win came on the South Course in the 2008 U.S. Open. Continue reading
We all know that the standard a player is measured against are the performances they make in big tournaments. That means Major Championships.
