1 Jordan Spieth Jordan Spieth -
Second to Dustin Johnson in New York. Second to Justin Thomas in Boston. Playing better than anyone in golf at this moment.
2 Justin Thomas Justin Thomas -
▲ 6
Redefines what hot is. Jason Day two years later. How did he miss three consecutive cuts this summer?
3 Dustin Johnson Dustin Johnson -
World beater at Northern Trust. Two over-par rounds at Dell. Dustin is as good as his putter responds.
4 Jon Rahm Jon Rahm -
▲ 10
Still knocked off the rails too easily. Only win is Farmers in February. T3, T4 in FedExCup career. Explosive talent.
5 Rickie Fowler Rickie Fowler -
▼ 1
Fowler has shown a tendency to play his best when he is out of the hunt. Teases with his ability to climb the leaderboard late.
6 Henrik Stenson Henrik Stenson -
▲ 13
Wyndham win gives him the confidence to go with his talent. Proven FedExCup performer. Knows how to play East Lake.
7 Hideki Matsuyama Hideki Matsuyama -
▲ 8
Firestone showed who he could be. Best major performer in 2017. When the putter is weak, the rest of his game catches the flu.
8 Brooks Koepka Brooks Koepka -
▲ 1
Looked solid early after his U.S. Open win. Now may be playing under the burden of his own expectations.
9 Matt Kuchar Matt Kuchar -
▼ 3
Punches his ticket to East Lake almost every year. T4 at BMW a year ago. No Open hangover apparent.
10 Daniel Berger Daniel Berger -
▲ 10
Last good start was T5 at John Deere. Has been more of an early-summer than late-summer success
11 Justin Rose Justin Rose -
▼ 6
Players suggest Masters loss has haunted his year. Top 10 in first two FedExCup starts.
12 Phil Mickelson Phil Mickelson -
▼ 1
If he finds his way to East Lake, it will be a great comeback. Already a success with Presidents Cup Captain’s pick.
13 Rory McIlroy Rory McIlroy -
▼ 11
Season will probably end in Chicago. One more stop in Europe and then recuperation for ’18.
14 Sergio Garcia Sergio Garcia -
▼ 7
Rose was not the only player rocked by the Masters finish. Sergio admits he is not quite there on the golf course.
15 Patrick Reed Patrick Reed -
▲ 6
Salvaged 2017 with late strong showings. Gearing up for Presidents Cup. Patrick is best when Red, White and Blue are in his thoughts.
16 Kevin Chappell Kevin Chappell -
▼ 16
Doesn’t care about anything now that he scored the 10th slot on Presidents Cup roster. When you reach a goal while on your way to the airport, everything else seems minor.
17 Marc Leishman Marc Leishman -
▼ 17
Aussie having a rebound year. If he could play back nines on Sunday like he does the rest of the week, he would be a force.
18 Charley Hoffman Charley Hoffman -
▼ 2
Good year but a little deceptive. Ten of his last 12 rounds in the 70s. Not the game’s best finisher.
19 Kevin Kisner Kevin Kisner -
▼ 19
How much did Sunday at Quail Hollow take out of him? Admits there are courses where his length is a liability. Has only made it to East Lake twice.
20 Paul Casey Paul Casey -
▼ 20
Maybe the best non-winner on Tour in 2017. Not a title you want. Still hasn’t won in the U.S. since 2009.
21 Louis Oosthuizen Louis Oosthuizen -
▼ 21
T2 at PGA, T10 at Northern Trust. Louis underperforms his talent when it comes to winning. One win in the last three years, and that was in Australia.
22 Jhonattan Vegas Jhonattan Vegas -
▼ 22
Northern Trust was his best-ever FedExCup showing at T3. Followed it up with four rounds in the 70s in Boston.
23 Gary Woodland Gary Woodland -
▼ 23
One of the bubble boys heading into Conway Farms. Had great start in 2017, until family considerations knocked him off stride. Power game personified.
24 Bill Haas Bill Haas -
▼ 2
Quietly having a comeback year. 68-65 on the weekend at Boston. If he can find his way to East Lake, he has shown he can win there.
25 Brian Harman Brian Harman -
▼ 25
The 2017 version of Corey Pavin. He guts his way up leaderboards. Has never made it to East Lake.
