Updated FedEx Cup Standings: Patrick Cantlay Makes Huge Jump, but He Isn’t No. 1 Heading Into the Tour Championship

The first two legs of the FedEx Cup Playoffs are now behind us, and it’s time to shift our focus to the 2022 Tour Championship. Only the top 30 in the updated FedEx Cup standings will make the trip to East Lake and gun for the $18 million grand prize.

Patrick Cantlay made a major move up the standings thanks to his second straight win at the BMW Championship, but he won’t enter the Tour Championship in the No. 1 spot. So, who are the 30 players who will tee it up at East Lake next week, and who will enter the Tour Championship in the No. 1 spot in the FedEx Cup standings?

Scottie Scheffler is No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings entering the Tour Championship

Scheffler has been the best and most consistent player on the PGA Tour all season long, so it’s only right he’ll enter the Tour Championship as the No. 1 player in the FedEx Cup standings. Cantlay jumped up to No. 2 in the standings after his triumph at Wilmington Country Club, and Will Zalatoris sits in the No. 3 spot a week after his first PGA Tour win.

Scheffler, thanks to his four wins and three runner-up finishes this year, will start the TOUR Championship in the lead at 10 under par. If he holds on to win the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup, he’ll add $18 million to the $14 million he’s already earned on the course this season.

So, we know who’s at the top of the standings heading into the season finale next week. Let’s check out all 30 players who made the cut and will tee it up at East Lake.
