Rory McIlroy played nearly flawless golf in blustery conditions on Monday in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, posting a five-under 65, 15-under total. McIlroy trailed 54-hole leader Paul Casey by six shots at the start of the day and ended up winning by two strokes after Casey closed with a three-over 73.

Golf’s new big three has arrived: Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day. We’ve been awaiting the official changing of the guard in pro golf for some time now, especially with the aging and ailing Tiger Woods, and the idea of those three young men — all more polite, likable and humble than the other — competing against each other and vying for major titles for the next 15 years or so is quite exciting. I mean, I’m just giddy typing those words.

But, which player is the best on the planet? Well, the ever-changing no. 1 player in the Official World Golf Rankings says it is McIlroy, who returned to the top position — despite skipping The Barclays — two weeks after Spieth supplanted him with his runner-up finish at the PGA Championship.

Chris Kirk was making his way through the crowd as he greeted his family and walking toward the scoring area. At that point, he was still unaware he had won the tournament. But then, Kirk saw his caddie Bill Harke celebrating in the hallway, and Jack Graham, CEO of Deutsche Bank, was shaking his hand congratulating him.

With the logjam near the top of the leaderboard, Russell Henley probably wasn’t the guy you were expecting to go out and post a six-under 65 to take the lead at 12-under. Despite not birdieing the reachable-in-two par-5 18th, Henley still took a one-shot advantage over Billy Horschel, who birdied his last three holes to post a four-under 67 and get to 11-under.

Paired with each other in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, Rory McIlroy and Chris Kirk both caught fire and shot scorching bogey-free, seven-under 64s. Both players shot up the leaderboard at 10-under for the championship on Sunday’s “Moving Day” over the long weekend at TPC Boston. They’re currently tied for third, trailing Russell Henley by two strokes.

It’s not just the Americans who are holding their breaths in hopes of getting a captain’s pick for next month’s Ryder Cup. The deadline to make the European team on points is this Sunday, August 31st, which technically means the PGA Tour’s Deutsche Bank Championship ending on Monday doesn’t count towards the standings.

Ryder Cup juggernaut Ian Poulter is on the outside looking in and needs Captain Paul McGinley to give him the official nod (which, lets be real, it’s a lock). Poulter helped his case on Friday, firing a four-under 67 to put him in a tie for sixth after the first round.

The Deutsche Bank Championship isn’t just the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. It’s also — perhaps more importantly for a handful of players — the last chance for guys in the running to impress U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson before he announces his three wildcard picks next Tuesday, September 2nd. In other words, it’s a big week for those hoping to get a phone call on Monday evening.

Among those names are Keegan Bradley and Webb Simpson, both of whom are off to sizzling starts at TPC Boston.

Alright, we’re two legs into the FedExCup Playoffs, which means a couple of things: 1) there are two more left and 2) there are 30 guys who were eliminated after their performance (or lack thereof) at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday.

This is when the fabricated post-season starts to get a little more intriguing, with “bubble boys” every week and each field getting cut down. We’re at 70 now. So, who was initially inside the top 70 in FEC points before the DBC or who was outside of it and played their way into the BMW Championship next week in the Chicago area? I touched on this in Monday’s Top 5, but let’s take a more in-depth look.
