Patrick Reed Tops FedEx List; Ranked 9th in World

Barclays winner Patrick Reed vaulted to the top of the 2016 FedEx Cup Season Points List.

Reed has 3,575 points. Jason Day is second with 3,195 and Dustin Johnson is third with 2,907.

Of the initial field of 125 players, only the top 100 qualify for the Deutsche Bank Championship, which begins this Thursday.

Last year’s FedEx Cup champion Jordan Spieth is fifth, but trails Reed by 1,320 points.

Other than Reed, the big jump came courtesy Emiliano Grillo, who rose from 32nd to sixth with his tie for second place. Making an even bigger leap was American Sean O’Hair, who tied Grillo for second.

O’Hair soared from 108th to 15th to make the cut. Among those missing the cut were Shane Lowry, Robert Stretb, Lucas Glover, and Jonas Blixt.

World Rankings

Patrick Reed jumped from 14th ninth in the Official World Golf Rankings after winning The Barclays last week. He pushed Masters champion Danny Willett out of the top 10 for now.

The top five men stayed intact in their spots. Adam Scott moved past Bubba Watson for No. 6. World No. 1 Jason Day retained his spot for the 23rd straight week and 27th overall. The 27 weeks ranked No. 1 pushed him past Jordan Spieth for the 11th most weeks ranked No. 1.

Next up for Day in that category is Vijay Singh, who was spent 32 weeks ranked No. 1. And if Day can just keep it up a while longer, he can catch Tiger Woods at 683 weeks … sometime in 2029.
