Boo Weekley is inside the FedExCup top 20 for the first time since 2009.
March 18, 2013
Chris Dunham,

A chorus of “Boo”s was heard early Sunday at the Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank.

No, the fans weren’t jeering any of the competitors at Innisbrook’s Copperhead course, but they were cheering on Boo Weekley, who carded an astounding 8-under 63 -- the week’s best round by two shots -- to take a clubhouse lead that held up until the final group came home Sunday.

Weekley ended up in solo second, two shots behind champion Kevin Streelman, but earned 300 FedExCup points for his efforts and moved from 87th to 19th in the latest FedExCup standings. This marks Weekley’s first appearance inside the FedExCup top 20 since early in the 2009 season.

Also making a major move this week was first- and second-round leader Shawn Stefani, who finished tied for seventh. The TOUR rookie picked up his first-career top-25 finish and moved inside the top 125, settling at No. 118 in the latest FedExCup standings.

Stefani, on the year, had made three of six cuts prior to last week with his best finish coming at the Puert Rico Open presented by seepuertorico.com. That tie for 39th marked his first made cut since January’s Humana Challenge.

Streelman, who earned his first PGA TOUR victory in his 153rd start, moves to No. 6 in the FedExCup race, cracking the top 10 for the first time in his career. Streelman’s best FedExCup finish to date is a 25th-place mark in the 2010 Playoffs. Streelman never rated higher than 18th in that campaign, however.

Luke Donald moved to 53rd in the latest standings with his tie for fourth at Innisbrook. This is the first time in the history of the FedExCup that Donald ranks outside the top 50 at this point in the season.

Below are the biggest movers, both up and down, following the Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank.
