CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Seven of the top 10 in the current FedExCup standings are competing at the Wells Fargo Championship. Bubba Watson currently leads in points, but six others have the opportunity to replace him at No. 1 entering THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP next week.
Mark Wilson would take over No. 1 with a victory even if Watson is runner-up, while the other five chasing Watson would need Watson to finishing lower once the final results are determined Sunday afternoon.
With a victory, these players can move to No. 1 in FedExCup standings:
No. 3 Mark Wilson -- Moves to No. 1 with a win regardless of Watson’s finish; moves to No. 1 with a finish of T4 or better if Watson misses the cut; additional scenarios also could play out depending on how both players finish
If No. 4 Phil Mickelson wins …. Watson would have to finish in a two-way tie for second or lower
If No. 5 Martin Laird wins … Watson would have to finish third or lower
If No. 6 Gary Woodland wins … Watson would have to finish third or lower
If No. 7 Nick Watney wins … Watson would have to finish third or lower
If No. 10 Webb Simpson wins … Watson would have to finish 12 th or lower
