Watson Rises to No. 3 in FedEx Standings

His second career win at the Travelers Championship saw Bubba Watson jump from 12th to third in the latest FedEx Cup points standings.

Watson has 1,688 points, 227 behind second-place Jimmy Walker,  but a whopping 1,440 behind Jordan Spieth. Dustin Johnson (1,589 points) and Rory McIlroy (1,510 points) round out the top 5.

Paul Casey, who Watson defeated in a playoff on Sunday, jumped from 33rd to 16th in the rankings. Brian Harman, who finished third by a stroke, climbed from 96th to 63rd.

The top 125 players at the end of the regular season qualify for the four-tournament post-season, culminating in the TOUR Championship in Atlanta. The overall winner is awarded $10 million.
