Dustin Johnson won the BMW Championship on Sunday to move to No. 1 in FedExCup points going to the Playoff Finale, the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola. He will be joined in the top five by Patrick Reed, Adam Scott, Jason Day and Paul Casey. A win at East Lake will guarantee any of those top five the FedExCup title.
Meanwhile, four players busted the bubble Sunday and moved inside the top 30 who'll advance to East Lake. Those four are Roberto Castro, Daniel Berger, J.B. Holmes and Charl Schwartzel. Consequently, four players who started the week inside the top 30 were knocked out: Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia, Brooks Koepka, along with Henrik Stenson (who did not play the BMW).
