As the majority of top-ranked players rest up for the FedEx Cup Playoffs, the focus at the Wyndham Championship is on those players jockeying for position down the season’s home stretch. The Wyndham is the final event for players to move into the top 125 on the points list, thus guaranteeing full Tour status for next season and entry into the FedExCup Playoffs.

It's likely there will be some displacement in the standings; two players moved into the top 125 at the Wyndham in 2016, while five players made the leap in 2015.

Geoff Ogilvy, currently ranked 125th, has just a seven-point advantage over Nos. 126 and 127, Cameron Tringale and Sam Saunders. Other big names just outside the bubble include Ryan Palmer (128), Graeme McDowell (131), Smylie Kaufman (135), and Harold Varner III (138).

Of those teeing it up in Greensboro this week, FedEx No. 9 Kevin Kisner is the only player who could move into the top five with a win. Kisner, the 54-hole leader at last week’s PGA Championship, tees it up alongside Henrik Stenson and Bill Haas at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday.
