Inactive since his PGA Championship breakthrough, the German showed no signs of rust at the KLM Open with rounds of 67-67-66-66 and a four-stroke walkover.

Nearly bedridden, Kuchar doesn’t take the BMW crown but his tie for third is good enough to keep him atop the FedEx Cup points list, if not the Power Rankings.

He put Pebble Beach and Whistling Straits behind him for good with a stellar Sunday at Cog Hill and becomes the only twenty-something with more than three Tour titles (four).

Maybe it’s the approach of deer hunting season or the cooler weather, whatever the case Stricker continued his postseason tear last week and has finished T-3 (Barclays), ninth (Deutsche Bank) and T-8 (BMW Championship) in the playoffs.

Was overshadowed by his brother last week (Francesco, who finished T-8 at KLM Open), but the Italian has two wins, a runner-up and a third-place showing in his last seven starts. Somewhere Monty is smiling.

The BMW Championship may have been his worst tournament of the year (T-54) but the young Aussie is still among the favorites for next week’s Tour Championship.

Not sure which will haunt him longer, playing the last six at Cog Hill in 3 over to finish alone in second place or having to watch the Ryder Cup from home.

Post-Deutsche Bank Championship hangover lasted until Sunday’s 69, but at third on the FedEx Cup points list he controls his own destiny at East Lake.

Despite his tie for 37th at the BMW, Englishman is still a solid Ryder Cup pick considering that he’s missed just one cut in his last 14 worldwide starts.
