The Likely FedEx Cup Scenarios for Final Round (as of Rain Delay)
By Stephanie Wei under FedEx Cup

FedEx Cup scenarios as of 1:10pm (rain delay)

Here’s the handout the Tour just passed out of the likely scenarios for the next two hours (which is the time they expec to finish before bad weather returns — if they DQ Kevin Na). I apologize if you can’t read the picture I took of it with my camera, but it doesn’t make that much sense, anyway. All I know is that to win the FedEx Cup, most the leaders have to win the tournament.

But I did find one scenario interesting. Nick Watney is five-under through 13, seven-under for the tournament. At one point, he was 14-under in the last 20 holes and 12-under for the last 18 (score of 58!). He’s one back of the leader, Jim Furyk, at the moment. So, if Watney can stay hot and wins the Tour Championship and Matt Kuchar finishes solo-25th, then it would result in a tie for the FedEx Cup. Kuchar is in the clubhouse in 26th place currently.

A sudden-death playoff would then take place immediately following the conclusion of the final round. Now that would be cool if they faced off for the $10 million.

Otherwise, bo-ring. I’m about to fall asleep, so I’m going to watch in the rain, which should be nice and wet since I didn’t pack a jacket.
