After an exciting weekend of action at the RBC Heritage, we take a look at this week’s Movers and Losers from the FedEx Cup. With the PGA Tour schedule so tightly packed because of Olympic Golf and the Ryder Cup, it is important to be in good position heading into the final stretch of the season.
Branden Grace shot an impressive final round 66 to win his first PGA Tour event. Grace moved up the FedEx Cup leaderboard 71 spots and was the biggest mover of the week.
Luke Donald, who had the lead heading into Sunday, moved up the FedEx Cup leaderboard 70 spots after a t-2 finish. Bryce Molder also had a solid week jumping 27 spots and into the top 100. The wiley vet David Toms also moved into the top 100 following a t-14.
Branden Grace – 90th ^ 19th
Luke Donald – 123rd ^ 53rd
Bryce Molder – 102nd ^ 75th
David Toms – 108th ^ 95th
The Losers are not necessarily the players who dropped the most in the standings, but the players who missed out on the opportunity to gain spots. Graham DeLaet only moved up five spots in the standings following a t-14, but he could’ve done much better. DeLaet kicked off the week with rounds of 69 and 70, but faltered on the weekend shooting a combined one over to finish at two under for the week.
Charley Hoffman was sitting at six under par heading into the third round only to shoot rounds of 71 and 75 on the weekend. Billy Horschel had a chance to solidify his spot in the standings with a good week, but couldn’t get it together on the weekend. He headed into Saturday at two under, but shot rounds of 74 and 76 to move himself out of contention.
Graham DeLaet – 65th to 60th
Charley Hoffman – 101st to 91st
Billy Horschel – 63rd to 65th
