At Pro Golf Weekly, we’ve recently started a new feature where we highlight the biggest movers from the past weekend in the season long FedEx Cup Race. We also keep a close watch on the players languishing outside the cut line as we head into a new PGA Tour weekend.
Notes from the John Deere Classic
- Ryan Moore earned his 6th Top-10 finish this season, and his first win in nearly two years, at John Deere Classic last week. The win moved him 39 spots up the rankings to the 23rd
- Ben Martin’s outright 2nd place finish last week moved him from 121st to 59th in the standings. A former winner on tour, this was Martin’s 2nd Top-10 finish this season.
- A T25 finish at the John Deere Classic moved Johnson Wagner 16 spots up the standings, from 125th to 109th. His finish guarantees him a spot at The Barclays next week.
- South Korean Whee Kim was another player who made a big jump last week, thanks to his T-3rd Kim now becomes the FedEx Cup Bubble Boy, and will most likely need to finish Top-50 to move into the Playoffs.
- Morgan Hoffman has made it into the Playoffs each of the three full seasons he’s played prior to this year. His T3rd finish at the John Deere Classic, moved him to 131st in the standings, and gives him a good chance to make it to the playoffs once again.
The Wyndham Championship marks the end of the “regular season” of the FedEx Race, with the Playoffs set to begin next week with The Barclays Championship. This is best field that this event has seen in recent history.

There are plenty of big names outside the cut-line at the moment, and the table below shows the likely finish they’ll need to secure a place in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
