Jim Furyk and Luke Donald are both struggling this season in regards to FedExCup ranking. In fact, both players rank at a career low in the FedExCup standings at this point in the season.
Furyk, the 2007 FedExCup champion, is making his 11th appearance at the RBC Canadian Open this week. Furyk currently ranks 71st in the race for the FedExCup on the strength of two top 10s (T7 Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank, T3 Valero Texas Open) and six top 25s in 2013.
Furyk has made the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in five of the 6 six years of FedExCup Playoffs existence.
Besides Phil Mickelson, Steve Stricker and Hunter Mahan -- which of whom have made the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in all six seasons -- Furyk is one of two players (Ernie Els) to make it to the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in five of the six years of the FedExCup Playoffs.
Known for his accuracy, Furyk has ranked inside the top 40 in both driving accuracy and greens in regulation in the last two seasons on TOUR. In 2013, his greens in regulation ranking has slipped to 65th on TOUR. However, his driving accuracy is right at the top ranking at fifth on TOUR, hitting more than 70 percent of his fairways.
Luke Donald is making his 11th start on TOUR and sixth start at the RBC Canadian Open this week. Donald currently ranks 58th in the FedExCup standings on the strength of three top 10s and eight top 25s this season.
Donald has made it to the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in four of the six years of the FedExCup Playoffs and is looking for his fifth straight appearance.
