2. Henrik Stenson: Swede entered playoffs 31st in points, then won Deutsche Bank Championship.

3. Adam Scott: Broke cellophane on majors with Masters win in April; Aussie also won Barclays.

4. Zach Johnson: Fourth in points despite skipping Barclays; seven top-10 finishes.

5. Matt Kuchar: Two wins this year — and hasn't missed a cut; average playoff finish 16th.

6. Steve Stricker: Semi-retired? He's finished in the top 25 in 10 of 12 official starts this season.

Collecting trophies is a habit of Tiger Woods.

12. Nick Watney: Two top-10 finishes in Cup ends midseason slump (six MCs from Players to Wyndham).

13. Jordan Spieth: One of two rookies to reach playoffs (Russell Henley); 12 top 25s in 22 starts.

15. Hunter Mahan: Average playoff finish 14th, bouncing back from disappointing PGA Championship (T-57).

16. Keegan Bradley: Missed cut at US Open, but finished in top 20 six times since (eight starts).

17. Gary Woodland: Won Stableford-scored Reno-Tahoe Open; two top-20 finishes during playoffs.

19. Kevin Streelman: Won Tampa Bay Championship in March; no top 10s since Players Championship in May.
