The biggest jump in the FedExCup standings this week could come from Josh Teater, who entered the week 171st. Should he go on to win -- he’s currently one shot back of leader Bubba Watson -- he’d move inside the top 30.
How did Teater, who has just one finish in the top 50 this season, play his way into Saturday’s final group? Simple: Putting.
In Round 2, Teater converted eight putts of 8 feet or longer, including a career long 72-foot, 11-inch bomb on the third hole.
For the week, he’s converted nine putts from outside 10 feet -- second-most in the field.
