With just one top-25 this season -- not to mention 15 missed cuts in 19 starts -- Derek Lamely came into this week as a long shot to make the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. But sometimes one good week is all it takes to turn things around.
In Lamely’s case, it could be a very good week. He is 2 under through his first five holes in the second round and 7 under for the week. That has him tied for the lead for now -- and should he go on to win, Lamely would move from 195th to 59th in the FedExCup standings ( click here for live projections ).
Lamely isn’t the only one who could make a big move, of course. Trevor Immelman, who led overnight after a 64, is projected to climb 36 spots to No. 72, while Steve Bowditch is projected to move up 26 spots to 102nd.
