Graeme McDowell was golden on a windy Sunday at Harbour Town Golf Links.

The 2010 U.S. Open champion overcame a four-shot deficit on a day in which only three players broke 70 to get into a playoff with Webb Simpson. He defeated the reigning U.S. Open champ on the first extra hole to win the RBC Heritage -- his second career victory on the PGA TOUR.

With his win, McDowell moved from 50th to sixth in the latest FedExCup standings. In addition to making the week's biggest move, McDowell earned a position that stands as his best mark in the FedExCup race since January of 2011.

Simpson, who had been off to a slow start by his lofty standards in 2013, moved to 11th in the latest standings with his runner-up showing.

Also in the crowd of big movers this week were Jerry Kelly and Luke Donald, who notched his fourth top-5 finish in his last five trips to Hilton Head Island.

Camilo Villegas (114th), Trevor Immelman (123rd) and Rory Sabbatini (121st) each picked up their first top-10 finish of the season this week and moved inside the top 125 in the FedExCup standings.

As we approach midseason and the FedExCup Playoffs picture begins to take shape, it will become increasingly important to keep an eye on the players around the top 125 bubble.

Below are the biggest movers, both up and down, following the 2013 RBC Herigate.
