FedEx Cup Standings: How the Aussies are faring

While Spain’s Jon Rahm looks to be the player to catch in the FedEx Cup standings, here’s a look at how Australia’s stars are shaping up.

The competition has reached the playoff stage and there are two Aussies who have qualified, with both Jason Day and Cameron Davis flying the flag.

Day showing signs of former self

Ranked in 21st place in the current standings, Day has been showing real signs of a resurgence this year, most notably with his performance at the Open Championship.

In the end the 35-year-old was unable to chase down the eventual winner Brian Harman at Royal Liverpool Golf Course, but Day found himself in esteemed company in tied second alongside Rahm.

A one-time major winner at the PGA Championship in 2015, Day has been searching for the form in recent years that took him, at one stage, to number one in the world.

A disappointing 52nd-place finish at the St Jude Championship last week saw Day move down to 23rd in the world rankings and 21st in the FedEx Cup standings.

Looking for consistency is the key for the experienced Day, and he will be hoping for a response when he competes in the BMW Championship this week.

Day is considered an outsider to come out on top in the competition at Olympia Fields North Course in Chicago, with the Queenslander at 34.00 to win the tournament in Illinois.  

Looking ahead to the next major, which takes place at the US Masters in 2024, Day is available at 36.00 to claim what would be the second major title of his career.  

Davis producing signs of promise

Davis is the other Australian who is still in outside contention for FedEx Cup glory this year, and his chances were certainly boosted by his efforts at the St Jude Championship.

In such a competitive field, the 28-year-old from Sydney managed to finish tied in sixth place on -11 for the tournament at TPC Southwind.

Four shots off the frontrunners Lucas Glover and Patrick Cantlay after the four rounds, Davis gave a good account of himself in Shelby County, Tennesse and moved to 46th spot in the FedEx Cup standings.

Davis has certainly shown glimpses he can challenge for major honours in the past and impressed when finishing tied for fourth at the PGA Championship earlier this year.

It’s certainly a foundation to build on and his more recent performances have shown he’s ready to kick on and compete with Day and some of the biggest names in the game going forward.

On the back of his positive showing at the St Jude Championship, Davis looks to be good value at 61.00 to come out on top in the BMW Championship this week.
