Current FedEx Cup Standing

Scratch’s Thoughts:

70 enter, but only 30 will make it to Atlanta. There won’t be any cage matches, but it will be exciting to see who can manage to make it into the Top 30. It seems to be the general wisdom that unless Tiger wins here, he won’t have a chance at the FedEx Cup though he topped the rankings almost the entire season. Unfortunately for him, he has never played Conway Farms until the pro-am on Wednesday. ”I normally don’t work this hard in a pro-am, but I had to do a little bit of work because I wasn’t out here yesterday,” Woods said.

Expect a lot of pressure on Henrik Stenson after his win two weeks ago knocked Woods out of the top spot in the rankings. He’s been playing some great golf recently and if he is able to hold on to his momentum, he could win the Cup.
