Justin Thomas Jumps Ahead in FedEx Standings

American Justin Thomas is back in familiar territory at the top of the FedEx Cup standings.

Thomas’ win at the Honda Classic on Sunday saw him rise to 1,258 points on the season, a mere 11 points behind previous leader Patton Kizzrie.  Thomas has needed seven event to reach his total; Kizzire 10.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson is third with 952 points in just four events and World No. 2 Jon Rahm is fourth with 936 points in six events.

Points accrue in every PGA sanctioned event over the course of the season. The top 125 players then participate in a post-season gamut of tournaments with higher payouts and points. The rankings reset each week with a number of players cut from the field.

The overall winner of the FedEx Cup wins an additional $10 million in bonus money.

Tiger Woods managed to pick up enough points by finishing tied for 11th to reach 100 points even through three events. That puts him 130th in the standings, just a few points out of the top 125.

Race to Dubai Standings

India’s Shubhankar Sharma remains the leader in the Race to Dubai standings with 748,074 through eight events. The lead won’t last given how many players are within striking distance with far fewer events played.

Tommy Fleetwood is second with 628,754 points in just three events. The top 60 players qualify for the post-season event.
