Stat of the day: FedExCup leaders

By Jessica Rangel, PGATOUR.COM

Heading into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, there are three players who are capable of becoming the new leader in the FedExCup standings. Although the current leader Tiger Woods is playing, a faulty performance could open the door for Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker or Phil Mickelson.

Below includes the current standings, how many points behind the lead, and a ‘what if’ first place scenario.

  • Woods would guarantee himself the top position for another week with a win or solo second place finish.

  • If Kuchar finishes solo second, he would need Woods to finish outside the top 35 to take his spot.

  • If Snedeker finishes solo second, he would need Woods to finish outside the top 60 to take his spot.

  • Woods would retain the top spot if he finished second or solo third behind Mickelson in this scenario
