FedExCup Playoffs standings midway through final round of The Northern Trust

Now that the cut has been made, we break down who is currently projected to make the top 70 that will advance to the 2020 BMW Championship next week.

UPDATE 7:54 p.m.: Final leaderboard following The Northern Trust

UPDATE 2:38 p.m.: The leaders are have teed off, so the entire field has at least begun the final round at The Northern Trust. Dustin Johnson has a five-stroke lead and is projected to move to the top of the FedExCup Playoffs leaderboard. Below, we’ve updated the projected leaderboard with everybody on the course or finished with their round.

The Northern Trust is now three-fourths complete, and Dustin Johnson’s five-shot lead gives him a tremendous chance to take over first place from Justin Thomas in the FedEx Standings.

The Top 70 players after this event will advance to the BMW Championship at Olympia Fields in Chicago next weekend. Right now that bubble has plenty of talented golfers that need a nice score on Sunday. All golfers that made the cut in Boston will score some points, but it’s a wide range of what’s available: Right now Johnson is in line for 1500 points for first place, whereas Matt Jones will garner just nine if he is unable to improve on his 70th and last-place score right now.

After next weekend, the top 30 in points will head to the season-ending TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, so players are looking to increase their chances of making both fields to have a shot at a guaranteed payday of at least $450,000 if they make the Top 30.

Through Saturday at TPC Boston, Dustin Johnson is lapping the field at -22, ahead of both Harris English and Scottie Scheffler at -17. If he holds on for the win, he’ll be the leader unless Justin Thomas can claw back some ground from his current T34 and -7 status. Right now the bubble golfer at #70 is Max Homa, who missed the cut by one shot on Friday. Now he’ll be at the mercy of what happens around him as to whether he’ll be at Olympia Fields next Thursday.

Tiger Woods finished on the cut line at -3, and shot a +2 73 on Saturday. He’s fallen from 49th in the FedEx standings to a projected 57th, and will now need to close well and make some noise next week in Chicago if he’s to have any chance to make it to East Lake.

Here is the full projected leaderboard for the field before the final round of The Northern Trust.
