FedEx Cup Playoffs: Adam Scott in Danger of Season Ending Early
For several PGA Tour players, the 2014-15 season will end at the conclusion of the Barclays this week at Plainfield CC. A number of high-profile players are hovering around the top 100 bubble, hunting a good finish that could extend their season—and propel them closer to a piece of the FedEx Cup payout.
Thanks to stats master and GOLF Magazine contributor Mark Broadie, we’ve got an in depth look at the bubble situation and who needs to finish where in order to qualify for the second playoff event, the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston. A few big names are fighting to extend their season.
Adam Scott, who won the Barclays in 2013 and finished fourth in the final FedEx Cup standings that season, is currently 94th and needs a finish no worse than solo 54th to quality for the Deutsche Bank. Three-time major champion and this year’s Honda Classic winner Padraig Harrington needs to finish solo 61st or better to remain in the top 100. He’s currently 87th.
Check out the chart below to see what a few others (namely Luke Donald, Jason Dufner, Vijay Singh, Lee Westwood and Morgan Hoffmann) need to do at the Barclays to prevent an early end to their season.
