FedEx Cup Updated Standings: Will Zalatoris Vaults to No. 1, Rickie Fowler and Jason Day Get Sent Home

The FedEx Cup Playoffs wasted no time supplying the drama, as Will Zalatoris brought home his first PGA Tour victory with a thrilling playoff win against Sepp Straka. The 25-year-old jumped World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler to steal the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings heading into this weekend’s BMW Championship.

With just two more events remaining in the 2022 season, let’s check in on the updated standings and see who’s in position to win the $18 million FedEx Cup prize.

Zalatoris sure did pick a good time to win his first PGA Tour event. With the victory, Willy Z added 2,000 FedEx Cup points to his season-long total to jump Scheffler in the standings. He’ll enter the BMW Championship in first place, with Scheffler in second and Cameron Smith in third.

Sepp Straka jumped 35 spots in the standings thanks to his runner-up finish at the FedEx St. Jude Championship, but he wasn’t the biggest mover of the weekend. Lucas Glover went from 121st to 34th in the standings after his T3 finish at TPC Southwind, and he’s now in a position to crack the top 30 and punch his ticket to the TOUR Championship.
