If it seemed like Billy Horschel had been in contention every week for the first half of this season, it's probably because he almost was.
Horschel, yet to miss a cut in a dozen 2013 starts (when just 18 events have been contested) broke through with his first career TOUR victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, an exclamation point on his run of four consecutive top-10 finishes dating back to a tie for second at the Shell Houston Open.
With his win, Horschel moved from 14th to third in the latest FedExCup standings. His victory drought was the only streak that was busted this week.
Kyle Stanley, who famously rebounded from a crippling loss at Torrey Pines with his maiden victory at the Waste Management Phoenix Open the following week, earned his first top-10 finish since that triumph.
Stanley had competed in 33 events, including 10 this year, without a top-10 finish but got back on track last week at TPC Louisiana with weekend scores of 65-67 to slide into a third-place finish behind Horschel and D.A. Points.
Stanley's finish allowed the 25-year-old to claw himself into the FedExCup top 100. He moved up 72 positions to No. 79 in the FedExCup standings.
A number of other players significantly improved their FedExCup Playoffs prospects. Lucas Glover, who flirted with his first victory since 2011, climbed from 95th to 58th, moving ever closer to locking up a spot in the Playoffs.
Nicolas Colsaerts moved inside the top 125 with his tie for eighth and settled in this week at No. 103 in the standings. Fellow-rookie D.H. Lee also tied for eighth and moved from 178th to 152nd in the latest standings.
Below are the biggest movers, both up and down, following the 2013 Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
NOTE: 22 other competitors fell seven spots in the standings.
