The FedEx Cup playoffs are here, and that means there are just 30 guys with a chance to win the biggest monetary prize in all of golf. Let's continue to run down the list, shall we?
This is how fast this game can change in the post-TW era: one minute you're a forgotten man, buried in the depths of the money list, and the next, with one single win, you're right in line to win an enormous, life-changing prize.
Justin Rose has been fairly outstanding in the playoffs, winning last week and placing T6 in the Barclays. Thus, a T68 in between didn't hurt him significantly. He's had a solid year all year long, carding five top 10s in the 21 events he's entered. But he's obviously peaking at exactly the right time.
Statistically, Rose is in the middle of the pack, though he does rank among the top 10 in sand saves and greens in regulation. So, yeah, if he gets the ball close to the green in good shape, he's fine. Question now is, can he handle the pressure when he does get close?
