The top five players in the FedExCup are in a unique position. A victory at East Lake Golf Club for any of those five players means they automatically clinch the Cup. The other 25 players at the TOUR Championship will need help from their competitors to win the season-long competition. PGATOUR.COM is taking an in-depth look at each of the FedExCup's top five players:
5. MATT KUCHAR
Matt Kuchar is one of five multiple winners in 2013, recording multiple victories in a season for the first time in his career by winning the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship and the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance. The Georgia Tech grad has been one of the most consistent players on the PGA TOUR since 2009, winning five of his six titles in that span and amassing 41 top-10 finishes.
In the first three seasons of the FedExCup, Kuchar finished 92nd (2007), 115th (2008) and 40th (2009). He has since found his stride in the competition, however, finishing a career-best second in 2010, sixth in 2011 and 18th in 2012. Kuchar enters the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola inside the top five in the standings for the third time in the last four years. In 2010, Kuchar arrived at East Lake as the No. 1 player in the FedExCup standings after a victory at The Barclays. He was No. 5 in 2011 after a runner-up finish at The Barclays. He would go on to finish No. 2 and No. 6 in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
