PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) Ernie Els has been atop the FedEx Cup standings for the last five months, ever since he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational for his second PGA Tour win of the year. He knew all along he would be playing in The Barclays.
Scott Piercy was among the late arrivals.
He was in dire need of a good finish last week at the Wyndham Championship just to get into the top 125 in the FedEx Cup standings and be eligible for the first round of the PGA Tour playoffs.
Piercy shot 68 in the final round, moving into No. 125 with two points to spare.
