A chorus of “Boo”s rained down over the 18th green at Colonial Country Club on Sunday as Boo Weekley secured the third PGA TOUR victory of his career and first in half a decade.

Weekley’s win at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial moved him inside the FedExCup top-10 for the first time in more than four years. Now No. 6 in the standings, Weekley is at an all-time high and is in great position to make a run at golf’s richest prize during the FedExCup Playoffs later this year.

Zach Johnson, featured in last week’s “FedExCup spotlight” finally picked up his first top-10 finish of the 2013 season last week at Colonial and made his way from 95th to 55th in the latest FedExCup standings. Only once in the six-year history of the FedExCup has Johnson finished outside the top 40 and last week’s performance was a step in the right direction for the nine-time PGA TOUR winner.

Chez Reavie tied for 11th at Colonial -- his best finish since the 2012 Travelers Championship -- to move inside the top 125 in the latest FedExCup standings. Camilo Villegas (T26 at Colonial) also moved into the top 125 and checks in this week at No. 116 in the latest standings. Bud Cauley moved off the bubble, going from 124th to 112th in the latest standings with his tie for 14th at Colonial.

Five players -- Justin Bolli, Ernie Els, Martin Kaymer, Scott Langley and Nicholas Thompson -- currently ranked outside the top 100 took seven-position hits this week. Bolli, Langley and Thompson were in the field at Colonial while Els and Kaymer were idle.

With competitors scrambling to earn spots in the FedExCup Playoffs, the pressure intensifies on these players in the coming weeks.

Remember, only the top 125 in the FedExCup standings at the end of the PGA TOUR season will qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs. Playoff qualification also ensures a competitor his PGA TOUR card for the 2013-14 season.

Below are the biggest movers, both up and down, following the 2013 Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.
