The top-70 golfers in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup standings have moved on to Olympia Fields Country Club just outside of Chicago for this week’s BMW Championship, the second of three events in the Tour’s season-ending FedEx Cup Playoffs.
After his runaway Northern Trust win, Dustin Johnson sits 92 points ahead of second-place Justin Thomas. Webb Simpson is in third, followed by Daniel Berger and Collin Morikawa.
The top 30 in the standings after this week will advance to the Tour Championship at Atlanta’s East Lake Golf club for the finale of the 2019-20 season.
Below, we take a look at the fantasy golf power rankings for the top 30 competitors in the 2020 BMW Championship at Olympia Fields.

30. Matt Kuchar (+6000)
Tied for 18th last week following his missed cut at the PGA Championship. He has been quiet this season since winning the SMBC Singapore Open with no other top 10s but for a T-2 at the Genesis Invitational. He needs a big week to crack the top 30 and get to East Lake.
29. Corey Conners (+10000)
Fourth among those who made the cut last week with 0.75 Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee per round, according to Data Golf. His approach game wasn’t as sharp as usual, preventing a top finish.
28. Matthew Wolff (+5000)
Has now made five straight cuts, including his T-4 at the PGA Championship to move up to 33rd in the FedEx Cup standings. He has been especially sharp off-the-tee of late and ranks 13th on Tour for the 2019-20 season.
27. Tiger Woods (+4000)
A disappointing showing last week but closed it off with a Sunday round of 66 to move into a tie for 58th. He dropped to 57th in the FedEx Cup standings and needs to finish in the top eight this week to have a chance of moving on.
26. Louis Oosthuizen (+5000)
Enters the week 70th in the FedEx Cup standings and qualified for this event with his strong T-13 finish last week. Tied for sixth in the no-cut WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational earlier this month.
25. Abraham Ancer (+6000)
Missed the cut last week at plus-1 while uncharacteristically losing 1.57 strokes per round from tee-to-green. He’s averaging 0.95 strokes per round in that category in 2020 and should rebound.
24. Tony Finau (+3500)
Snapped a streak of five straight made cuts last week. He had previously rung up three top 10s and two top 5s in those five events. Ranks 29th in the FedEx Cup standings and is just inside the line for the Tour Championship.
23. Ryan Palmer (+8000)
His T-8 showing last week was his third top 10 in eight events since the restart. His short game has been exceptionally strong, but he’ll need to be better off-the-tee
