Player Profile: The 2014 FedEx Cup – Top 5 Players



On Sunday America’s Billy Horschel topped the FedEx Cup leader board for the 2014 season, beating Chris Kirk, Rory McIlroy, Jim Furyk, and Bubba Watson to the top of North American professional golf this year.

In this week’s player profile we take a look at the top five performers on the US PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup rankings.

#1 - Billy Horschel
2014 FedEx Cup winner Billy Horschel turned his golfing fortunes around during the closing weeks of the season with back-to-back wins at the BMW Championship and The Tour Championship. This flash of golfing greatness puts the 27-year-old American at the top of the FedEx Cup rankings this season – with just three professional titles to his name.

#2 - Chris Kirk
29-year-old Kirk found himself in second place this season after leading the FedEx Cup rankings earlier in the year. A victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship launched the Georgia native from seventeenth to first place in the rankings in early September, before Horschel’s winning streak mixed things up at the top of leader board.

#3 – Rory McIlroy
World number one Rory McIlroy settled for third place in the FedEx Cup rankings this season, having won the US PGA Championship (his fourth major title) and WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. McIlroy may not have triumphed at a FedEx Cup playoff event this season, but his performance on the US PGA Tour was exemplary.

#4 – Jim Furyk
With more than two decades of professional golf experience, PGA Tour veteran Jim Furyk took fourth place on the FedEx Cup rankings this season. The 44-year-old has weathered the ups and downs of a typical pro golf career to win almost 30 professional tournaments and one major – the 2003 US Open.

#5 – Bubba Watson
35-year-old Watson was in his element this season, with wins at the Northern Trust Open and the prestigious US Masters. Although his performance in FedEx Cup events was less dazzling than some of the other Top-5 players, Watson stood out as an exceptional player this season.
