FedExCup movers: Who's up, down following the Masters TournamentApril 15, 2013
It wasn’t meant to be for Angel Cabrera on Sunday afternoon at Augusta National but the Argentine didn’t leave the Masters empty handed.
Cabrera made the week’s biggest move up the FedExCup ranks, jumping to No. 27 in the latest standings after his runner-up showing. That’s his best mark in the FedExCup race since early in the 2010 campaign.
Adam Scott, who became the first Australian to slip on a Green Jacket, made his way inside the FedExCup top 10 for the first time since 2009 with his move to No. 4 in the standings. Scott, now a nine-time PGA TOUR winner, has three top-10 finishes in five starts this season.
Another Aussie on the move this week was Marc Leishman, who tied for fourth at Augusta and moved to 63rd in the latest FedExCup standings. The first-round co-leader notched his best finish in eight career major starts at Augusta and significantly improved his Playoff chances.
Others making strong moves were Fred Couples (now 153rd), David Toms (138th) and Ernie Els (96th).
Former world No. 1 and PGA TOUR rookie Martin Kaymer returned to the top 125 in the latest standings with a tie for 35th at Augusta National lifting him to 125th in the standings. If the PGA TOUR Season were to end today, Kaymer would earn the final spot in the Playoffs.
The majority of those taking the steepest hits in the FedExCup standings did not compete at the Masters. Only Ted Potter Jr., who missed the cut and fell eight spots to No. 93, shows up on the “who’s down” list after competing at Augusta.
Below are the biggest movers, both up and down, following the Masters Tournament.
