The top five players in the FedExCup are in a unique position. A victory at East Lake Golf Club for any of those five players means they automatically clinch the Cup. The other 25 players at the TOUR Championship will need help from their competitors to win the season-long competition. PGATOUR.COM is taking an in-depth look at each of the FedExCup's top five players:

3. ADAM SCOTT
In one of the defining moments of the 2013 season, Adam Scott’s victory at the Masters Tournament – the first by a player from Australia – was capped by the dramatic roar of “C’mon Aussie.” Scott is one of five multiple winners in 2013, recording multiple victories in a season for the second time in his career by winning the Masters and The Barclays. Scott’s victory at The Barclays came in his 21st FedExCup Playoffs event as he shot a final-round 66 and waited as several players had opportunities to match his score but fell short. He entered the final round T-13 and trailing Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland by six strokes before a bogey-free, 5-under 66 led to a one-stroke victory over Tiger Woods, Graham DeLaet, Gary Woodland and Justin Rose. It marked the largest come-from-behind win in the 47-year history of The Barclays. Scott has played in the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola seven times, with a victory in 2006, the year before the start of the FedExCup.
