The season-long FedEx Cup points race is heating up as the PGA Tour hits the mid-season mark. Jimmy Walker remains in the top spot with three wins and seven top-10s, but several of the top players on Tour will be looking to overtake Walker in the coming weeks.
After the completion of the Crowne Plaza Invitational, the top four in the FedEx points standings did not change: No. 1 Jimmy Walker, No. 2 Bubba Watson, No. 3 Matt Kuchar, and No. 4 Dustin Johnson. Each player is having a tremendous season with at least one win and six top-10s. Kuchar leads all players on Tour with nine top-10s, and Bubba won the The Masters in April.
No. 5 Jordan Spieth jumped up one spot with a T14 at the Crowne Plaza. Spieth is the only player in the top 10 without a win, but he has played exceptional golf with six top-10 finishes, including a T2 at The Masters and a T4 at The Players.
No. 6 Patrick Reed continues to fall after winning two tournaments earlier in the season. He has struggled with his game lately, but is probably gearing up for a mid-season push.
No. 7 Harris English has also been slumping lately with three missed cuts in his last five events. English will need to regroup, and get back to what made him successful at the start of the season.
No. 8 Chris Kirk is finding his form with a T13 at The Players and a T14 at the Crowne Plaza this past weekend.
Brendon Todd jumped from No. 11 to No. 9 by backing up his win at the HP Byron Nelson with a T5 at the Crowne Plaza. Awesome job Todd!
No. 10 Zach Johnson slid down a spot after a rough week at Colonial.
The winner at Colonial, Adam Scott, moved from No. 58 to No. 14.
