No surprise that Hunter Mahan is the new leader in the FedEx Cup standings, thanks to his 2,500-point win at the Barclays on Sunday.
The victory pushed him from 62nd to first, and gave him a 466-point lead over No. 2 Rory McIlroy.
Also vaulting into the new Top 10 were runner-up Jason Day, who climbed from 34th to seventh with 2,111 total points and co-runner-up Cameron Tringale, who went from 61st, a spot ahead of Mahan, ironically, to 10th.
Based on their lack of production at the Barclays, seven players fell from secure spots to completely out of the competition after the cut was made to 100: Jonas Blixt, Retief Goosen, Kevin Kisner, Nick Watney, Luke Guthrie, Rory Sabbatini, and Brian Davis.
The biggest jump into the new top 100 was by Morgan Hoffman, who soared from 124th to 72nd, the biggest move in the entire standings.
Also fighting into the shrinking field were:
- Bo Van Pelt (104th to 73rd)
- Stewart Cink (109th to 77th)
- Gonzalo Fdez-Castano (119th to 81st)
- Paul Casey (118th to 85th)
- Andrews Romero (110th to 92nd)
- Danny Lee (116th to 96th)
The “it must be my lucky day” award for the week goes to Geoff Oglivy who fell 10 spots to No. 100 to barely make the cut.
After the conclusion of the Deutsche Bank Championship this weekend, the field will shrink to 70 for the BMW Championship, and then to 30 for the TOUR Championship.
