Fed Ex Cup Update

A 37-year-old man still leads the PGA playoff points chase today, and a lot of people still think he's the best golfer in the world, but his name is no longer Tiger Woods.

Sweden's Henrik Stenson is the new top dog in the FedExCup Standings, using his victory Monday at the Deutsche Bank Championship to leapfrog Woods by a narrow 14-point margin.

Woods entered the post-season with a lead of more than 1,000 points, but it was shaved to 166 last week by Adam Scott following the Aussie's win at the Barclays.

Scott dropped from second to third, but has closed the gap on Woods down to 120 points.

By tying for fourth in Boston, Matt Kuchar is within 948 points of the overall lead. He's followed in the new Top 10 by Graham Delaet, Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose, Steve Stricker, Brandt Snedeker and Jordan Spieth.

The Top 70 players in the newest rankings move on to the BMW Championships in Chicago, which begin September 12. From there, the final 30 players will play at the Coca-Cola Championships in Atlanta.

The final two men to make the latest cut are Ernie Els and Ryan Palmer with 823 points. The heartbreak thus begins starting with Freddie Jacobson, who finished with 821 points.

Plenty of top players will have to get their games in gear if they want to make it to the final week of the season.

Former world No. 1 Rory McIlroy is currently sitting at No. 41 in the standings, and is 140 points behind the current No. 30 player Lee Westwood.

Other notable players currently on "the outside looking in" include Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson.
 
The current Top 10 players in the FedExCup standings are:

1. Henrik Stenson 4,051
2. Tiger Woods 4,037
3. Adam Scott 3,917
4. Matt Kuchar 3,103
5. Graham Delaet 2,806
6. Phil Mickelson 2,762
7. Justin Rose 2,664
8. Steve Stricker 2,617
9. Brandt Snedeker 2,326
10. Jordan Spieth 2,246
