At the top: Matt Kuchar jumped into first place from ninth, but he wasn't the biggest mover. Steve Stricker moved from second to, uh, second, so obviously he wasn't the biggest mover. No, top jumper went to Martin Laird, who rose to third from 95th. Perhaps almost clinching a trip to East Lake will ease the sting of losing an outright win on the 18th hole at the Barclays. Right below Laird are Justin Rose, who, yep, Rose from fifth to fourth, and Ernie Els, who fell from first to fifth.
On the way up: Outside of Laird, big jumpers were Kevin Streelman, who rose from 102nd to 18th; Rory Sabbatini, who jumped from 60th to 33rd, and a fella by the name of Tiger Woods, who jumped from 112th to 65th. Oh, and Andres Romero fought his way into the next week by the skin of his teeth, rising from 115th to 100th.
On the decline: Jim Furyk's crappy alarm clock cost him five spots, down from third to eighth. Phil Mickelson's crappy play cost him six spots, from fourth to 10th. Camilo Villegas and Anthony Kim both dropped from the mid-teens to 26th and 27th, respectively.
Out the door: Twenty-five players were shown the door after the Barclays, and most of those were already in the 101-125 range. Big decliners were Kevin Suutherland, Jerry Kelly, Alex Cejka and Derek Lamely, who all played themselves out of a top-100 spot. Also out are Sergio Garcia (did not play), Corey Pavin (did not play) and David Duval (did not play very well).
On the bubble: Next up is the Deutsche Bank Championship, and the field gets winnowed from 100 players to 70. So who's at risk? Davis Love III (72), Paul Goydos (84), Vijay Singh (86), Steve Elkington (89), Kenny Perry (90) and Boo Weekley (96) all need to pick up the pace if they're going to see next week.
All right, your turn. With the new rankings in place, who are your picks to reach East Lake?
