FedEx Cup standings: Top 70 after Deutsche Bank

RSS

NORTON, Mass. – Six players kept their postseason hopes alive on Monday at the Deutsche Bank Championship, playing their way into the top 70 and next week’s BMW Championship after starting the week on the wrong side of the playoff bubble.

Conversely, six players fell out of the top 70, including Jerry Kelly who took the biggest tumble from 61st on the list to 72nd after missing the cut at TPC Boston.

David Hearn made the biggest move to advance to the third playoff stop, starting the week 92nd on the points list but finishing tied for eighth to move to 59th.

“I knew coming in I needed a good finish to continue on in the playoffs,” said Hearn, who closed with a 1-under 70. “Hopefully it gives me another chance to get into that Tour Championship [top 30].”

Billy Hurley III also tied for eighth place to move from 77th to 51st on the points list to make his first start at the BMW Championship. Hudson Swafford (T-15), Vaughn Taylor (T-24), Chris Kirk (T-33) and Marc Leishman (T-46) also moved into the top 70.

The amount of movement on the points list at TPC Boston was about average since the PGA Tour tinkered with the points to reduce the amount of post-season volatility. Last year, four players moved into the top 70 and in 2014 six played their way to the BMW.

As for next week’s race, Deutsche Bank Championship winner Rory McIlroy moved to fourth on the points list and runner-up Paul Casey is now 10th to secure their spots at the finale later this month at East Lake; unseating Daniel Berger, who tied for 41st to fall a single spot from No. 30 to 31st, and Charley Hoffman, who missed the cut and dropped from 27th to 36th.
