NORTON, Mass. – The top of the leaderboard at the Deutsche Bank Championship looks a lot like the upper echelon of the FedExCup standings.
The red-hot Dustin Johnson is tied for second with Nick Watney, the man who he replaced at the top of the standings when he won the rain-shortened Barclays on Saturday. Also at 4 under is Troy Matteson, and the three are one behind the leader, Jerry Kelly.
Meanwhile, Matt Kuchar, who finished second to Johnson at Plainfield Country Club last weekend, is on the course at 1 under through 14 holes. He leapfrogged Watney as well, moving into second in the FedExCup.
Johnson, Watney and Kuchar are playing together on Friday in the Featured Group.
