The calendars turn to August this week which means one thing: the FedExCup Playoffs are almost here.

On Aug. 22, the top 125 in the FedExCup ranks will tee it up at Liberty National for The Barclays. That event opens up a five-week (four event) stretch in which the fields will be whittled from those 125 to 100, 70 and 30 with the FedExCup champion being crowned at East Lake on Sept. 19.

Obviously to win, competitors must qualify for the Playoffs and there are just three weeks (four events) remaining for them to do just that.

Another spot in the Playoffs was all but locked up at the RBC Canadian Open thanks to Jason Bohn’s runner-up finish. Bohn, who entered the week at 137th in the FedExCup ranks, left Glen Abbey in 93rd position. It’s very unlikely that 32 players will move ahead of him in the next four weeks but stranger things have happened.

William McGirt was just inside the Playoff cut line but found similar success in Canada, also tying for second to jump 39 positions from 119th to 80th in the latest FedExCup standings. Also from the cut line to near-safety was Mark Wilson, who tied for sixth and jumped 19 positions to 96th in the latest FedExCup standings.

Aaron Baddeley gained a little security in Canada, as well, breaking a streak of 10 consecutive missed cuts with a T9 finish that pushed him from 123rd to 112th in the FedExCup standings.

Two competitors -- Bud Cauley (124th to 129th) and Brad Fritsch (125th to 130th) -- dropped out of the top 125 this week.

Below are the biggest movers, both up and down, following the RBC Canadian Open.
