Dustin Johnson moves to #1 in FedEx Cup points

Dustin Johnson goes -19 to win the first round of the FedEx Cup playoffs at the Barclays.  -19?  Wow.  Like I mentioned on twitter, as much as I love Donal Ross courses, most are so old that they’re way too short for Tour players.  Oh, I forgot to mention that the -19 score was in an event shortened to 54 holes!  Wow.

The funny part about DJ’s demolition of this course, is that he tore up the front and didn’t do that much on the back! DJ was -2 on the back.  Yes, the side which had two par-5′s and a 289 yard par-4.  DJ was -17 on the front, with two rounds of 29 and one 30.  The front only had one par-5.

Stats

DJ’s stats for the Barclays are quite impressive.  Here are a few reasons DJ won:

T2 in eagles
T1 in birdies (21)
T5 in bogeys
2nd in driving distance
T8 in putts per round
T7 in putts per green in regulation
T9 in greens in regulation
T1 in sand saves

Now DJ is in a great position in FedEx Cup points, 1st.

The ever consistent Matt Kuchar moved himself up the food chain quite a bit with the 2nd place finish, though he probably should have gotten himself into a playoff with DJ were it not for the two consecutive bogeys on the back in the final round.  Kuch moves from 12th to 2nd in playoff points.

Brand Snedeker and Vijay Singh improved their causes in the playoff race, moving from 18th to 6th and 36th to 8th respectively.  Singh was not playing terribly well earlier this year, but seems to be sniffing blood or in this case, sniffing the the $10 million in cash.
