FedEx Cup Playoffs - The Final 30

With the first three events in the 2009 PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedEx Cup completed, the final 30 players have been determined and will advance to The Tour Championship presented by Coca-Cola, which will decide the winner of the FedEx Cup.

Here's a quick look at the Final 30 players in the field at East Lake in two weeks.

Rank - Player - Barclays - Deutsche Bank - BWM - Reset points

1 TIGER WOODS T2 T11 Win 2,500
He's right where everyone expected him to be. Now can he win the FedExCup for the second time?

2 STEVE STRICKER T2 Win T53 2,250
Mr. September had a letdown at Cog Hill but he'll be ready for Atlanta.

3 JIM FURYK T15 T8 T2 2,000
He's broken par in eight of his last 12 rounds at East Lake, and he's in pretty good form right now.

4 ZACH JOHNSON T28 T19 5 1,800
He's fallen two spots since the Playoffs began but a win still gives him the FedExCup.

5 HEATH SLOCUM Win MC T38 1,600
He started No. 124 but surprising win at Liberty National put him in the catbird seat.

The Irishman turned his season around as he rode 5 top-10s into a shot at the $10 million.

7 SEAN O'HAIR MC T8 4 1,200
He should head to Atlanta with momentum after closing with a 5-under 66 at Cog Hill.

8 SCOTT VERPLANK T9 T2 T38 1,000
He got hot at the right time with five top-10s in his last nine starts.

9 KENNY PERRY T52 T48 T45 800
He hasn't had a top-10 since he won for the second time in '09. He'll need a third win for a shot at the Cup.

A berth in Atlanta is icing on the cake in a career year for Dufner.

11 DUSTIN JOHNSON T15 T4 T30 480
The big-hitter, who has already won twice on TOUR, will be making his first appearance at East Lake.

12 NICK WATNEY T6 T46 T30 460
He narrowly missed a Presidents Cup berth. A win at East Lake could be a huge bonus.

13 GEOFF OGILVY MC 7 T55 440
With the end of the season in sight, he acknowledges his enthusiasm has been revived.

14 PHIL MICKELSON T52 T27 T30 420
His mere presence at East Lake means things are going well at home. A win would cap a difficult year.

15 RETIEF GOOSEN T70 T8 T23 400
The South African has never finished out of the top 10 at East Lake and won in 2004.

The rookie will make his debut at East Lake with confidence after his best finish on Tour.

17 BRIAN GAY T12 T54 T55 360
A two-time winner in 2009, he's making his TOUR Championship debut.

18 KEVIN NA T24 T11 T8 340
Can he cap a career year with his first PGA TOUR win?

19 DAVID TOMS T31 T36 T23 320
With seven top-10s, including three seconds this year, the only thing missing is a win.

20 LUCAS GLOVER MC T36 66 310
The week off will be good for the U.S. Open champ, who has played the last six weeks.

21 Y.E. YANG T20 67 65 300
Life is good for the Korean who debuts at East Lake and The Presidents Cup in a three-week pan.

22 ERNIE ELS T2 MC T38 290
He's finished in the top 10 six times in 13 appearances at East Lake and lost in a playoff in 2001.

23 HUNTER MAHAN T20 T36 T38 280
Now that he's on the Presidents Cup team, a good finish would be a confidence boost.

Hard to believe this two-time major champion has never played at East Lake.

25 STEVE MARINO T15 T27 T18 260
He had a chance to win the first Playoffs event, but a 77 cost him. Maybe East Lake will be kinder.

26 STEWART CINK T28 MC T23 250
The British Open champ lives in Atlanta but had to play well on Sunday at Cog Hill to make it home.

27 MIKE WEIR T31 T23 T20 240
He's a former champion at East Lake who tied for sixth last year.

28 LUKE DONALD T31 T54 T10 230
The Englishman played his way into the top 30 in front of his former college (Northwestern) fans.

29 JERRY KELLY T52 T11 T49 220
The winner in New Orleans, Kelly has played well at East Lake (4th in 2002; 3rd in 2004).

30 JOHN SENDEN T64 T11 T20 210
Will be making his first appearance in TOUR Championship; has five top-10s this year.
