The Field: Dell Technologies Championship

Dustin Johnson was five shots back of Jordan Spieth through five holes in the final round of The Northern Trust, but he overcame the deficit with a 4-under 66 to force a playoff with Spieth.

The World No. 1 edged Spieth on the first playoff hole (No. 18) with a birdie to secure his fourth victory of the season.


 
Johnson, who began the week at No. 4 in the FedExCup standings, returns to the top of the standings with the win. With his runner-up in New York, Spieth moves into the No. 2 spot.

The FedExCup Playoffs shifts to its second of four tournaments with the Dell Technologies Championship hosting the top 100 players in the FedExCup standings at TPC Boston.

Joining Johnson and Spieth in Beantown will be defending champion Rory McIlroy, along with superstars such as recent PGA Champion Justin Thomas, World No. 3 Hideki Matsuayma, rookie phenom Jon Rahm, and fan favorite Rickie Fowler.

Following the Boston event, the top 70 in the standings will move on to the BMW Championship outside Chicago before the top 30 advance to the season finale at the TOUR Championship in Atlanta.

Three players began THE NORTHERN TRUST outside the top 100 and moved inside the top 100 to advance and keep their seasons alive.

Nine-time PGA Tour winner Bubba Watson finished T10 to move from No. 113 to No. 72 in the standings. Sweden’s David Lingmerth’s T29 finish was enough to bump him from No. 103 to No. 87, and Harold Varner III, who narrowly qualified for the Playoffs after entering the regular season finale at No. 138, is now on to the Dell Technologies Championship after vaulting from No. 123 to No. 91 with his T20 finish.
