Ranked 72nd entering the 2007 FedExCup Playoffs, Arron Oberholser moved up to 34th thanks in part to a tie for second at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Camilo Villegas started a run of Playoffs successes as he vaulted 28 spots up the FedExCup standings on the strength of three top-10 finishes. Villegas was the lowest-ranked player entering the inaugural Playoffs to make it to The TOUR Championship.
