FedExCup update: Round 2

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

ATLANTA -- Henrik Stenson remains in control of his FedExCup fate even more so now after a second-round 66 to open up a four-shot lead atop the leaderboard at East Lake.

If Stenson goes on to win the tournament, he'll win the FedExCup, too. Here's a look at who did what on Friday:

TOP FIVE: Stenson, as mentioned, is in control. Adam Scott is alone in second after a 69 and if he can somehow overtake Stenson and go on to win, it will be the Aussie who takes home the FedExCup. Zach Johnson, who is coming off a win last week in Chicago, moved up seven spots on the leaderboard thanks to a 68 but is still currently projected fourth in the FedExCup standings. Matt Kuchar, meanwhile, dropped 11 spots after a 74 but is still projected fifth. Tiger Woods can still win the FedExCup, but the FedExCup's No. 1 has work to do after admitting he "ran out of gas" late in his round as he went from 5 under to 1 over on the day and tumbled into a tie for 26th.

BIGGEST MOVERS: By moving into third place alone following a a 67 Friday, Jordan Spieth moved from 13th to eighth in the current projections. He would not only have to win the tournament but would need Scott and Stenson to stumble. Dustin Johnson, meanwhile, made a big jump. He came in 30th but is now projected to 14th after a 68. Likewise, he needs o win and have Stenson and Scott stumble. Billy Horschel wasn't much better at 22nd at the start of the week but he's now projected 11th and faces more or less the same scenario as Johnson and Spieth.
