Sergio Garcia Gets a Second Chance at the Playoffs

Last week, before The Deutsche Bank Championship, Sergio Garcia was ranked #71 and we all know what that means... He had to make something happen at TPC Boston to not miss the cut and play at The BMW Championship at the Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Illinois. Only the top 70 in FedEx Cup points can advance to the third round of playoffs and Sergio made it happen. His 26th place finish in Massachusetts was enough to elevate his FedEx Cup rank to #55.

While all went well for Sergio Garcia and winner Steve Stricker at the Deutsche Bank Championship, it's all but good news to former number 1 Tiger Woods and FedEx Cup defending champion Vijay Singh.

Tiger lost his number 1 spot to Steve Stricker entering the third round of the Playoffs and Vijay Singh missed the cut for the BMW Championship... he is currently down to 81st. It must be very disappointing for Vijay to not get a chance to defend his title.

Not knowing what to expect seems to be the trend in golf lately. Right now, my guess as to who could win the FedEx Cup is just as good as anyone else. With how things are going, I am not even confident to say that Tiger could win this... I guess there is nothing else to do but wait and watch as the FedEx Cup unfold before our eyes.
