2013 US PGA Tour Championship Preview: Leaderboard

Performances on the Majors have put Adam Scott and Jason Day firmly in the international spotlight this year.

ADAM SCOTT and JASON DAY are among the 30 golfers lining up this week for a shot at the US PGA Tour Championship and the US$10 million FedEx Cup cash bonus.

Scott is ranked third in the FedEx standings and a win at the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta would ensure he picks up the championship trophy, the US$1.44 million attached prizemoney, plus the FedEx bonus.

Not a bad weekend and that is exactly what Brandt Snedeker achieved last year and Bill Haas the year previous.

It would also make it a very good year for the US Masters winner and likely net him Player of the Year status.

There are all sorts of mathematical possibilities in play this week. For Scott and the others in the top five – Tiger Woods, Henrik Stenson, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar – all they need to do is beat anyone higher home to ensure the cash jackpot.

For everyone else, things are not so simple. That includes Day, sitting in 14th position, who has a mathematically possible but precarious chance of winning the jackpot. He could win this weekend to take the championship title but the FedEx Cup would depend on other results.

Live coverage begins Friday on Fox Sports 3am – 8am.
