Rahm entered the FedExCup Championship ranked No. 1 after playing in 18 events and winning four of them this season. Although racking up 148 more points than his second place competitor Scottie Scheffler, his sub-par play-off performance is catching up with his stellar regular season standings.

Scheffler is projected to earn 5,238 points at the championship conclusion compared to Rahm’s 3,480 points. 

Rahm has eleven PGA tour wins under his belt including the 2020 BMW Championship and the 2021 U.S. Open. He has been unstoppable during the 2022-23 season securing wins for The American Express Tournament, The Genesis Invitational, Sentry Tournament of Champions and the 2023 Masters.

In The St. Jude Championship, Rahm finished 5-under-par in the first event of the FedExCup and tied for 39th-place. Enough for him to make the cut from 70 players to 50. Wrapping up his rounds in the BMW Championship on Sunday, Rahm shot his best score of 67, finishing even and tied in 32nd-place. 

As several players are still completing their rounds, Rahm will require unfavorable scores from his competitors to finish in the top  30 of today’s BMW Championship.
