Fed Ex Cup: Party Crashers

The PGA Tour is down to it’s final event as the top 30 in the Fed Ex standings prepare for East Lake.

It’s very easy to talk about who isn’t playing. There will be no Tiger Woods. No Jordan Spieth. No Phil Mickelson.

What the TOUR championship can do is serve as an introduction for Abraham Ancer, Corey Conners, and Sungjae Im to the casual fan.

Abraham Ancer (Mexico)

FedExCup Rank: 10

2019 Top 10 Finishes: 4

2019 Highest Finish: 2nd (Northern Trust)

Ancer has continued his momentum from the 2018 season.

Three top five finishes this season is the most of his career and, despite not having a Tour win, he’s been on the cusp.

He’s also the first Mexican to make the President’s Cup.

Corey Connors (Canada)

FedExCup Rank: 23

2019 Top 10 Finishes: 4

2019 Highest Finish: 1st (Valero Texas Open)

Connors has gone from conditional status/Monday qualifier to playing in the Tour Championship.

In his only win of the season, Connors qualified at TPC San Antonio on a Monday and won the Valero Texas Open on Sunday.

Connors finished 7th at the BMW Championship.

Sungjae Im (South Korea)

FedExCup Rank: 24

2019 Top 10 Finishes: 7

2019 Highest Finish: T3rd (Arnold Palmer Invitational)

Im is probably the most recognizable name on this list.

The Korean rookie has seven top 7 finishes, putting him in the spotlight more than Ancer and Connors.

Early in the season, Im went through a four tournament stretch where he finished in the top 10 three times.
