We're running down the players with a chance at the FedExCup, and here we are: the fabled top five. These guys control their destiny; if they win the Tour Championship, they win the FedExCup, no matter what anybody else does. We continue with a cat who's on the very edge of busting out big.

Nick Watney is always on the edge of every major golf conversation. You expect him to be close, but he's never quite able to slam the door on a big-time golf victory. He's been close, oh so close -- last year he came into the playoffs ranked No. 1, for instance -- but he hasn't yet taken that big step forward. Now, once again, he's got his chance.

It was a rough year for Watney, but it's headed the right direction. Winning the Barclays vaulted him to the No. 1 spot in the rotation, and he's only slipped slightly since then despite some relatively rocky performances in the BMW and the Deutsche Bank. He'll be able to win the FedExCup with a victory, and has a good chance of closing the deal with a second-place finish, assuming that none of the other Big Five win at East Lake. It'd be a nice bit of closure if he was able to bring home the big prize this weekend.
