Meridian's Graham DeLaet can win FedExCup at Tour Championship

Graham DeLaet started the FedExCup playoffs in 34th place. After two of the four tournaments, and two top-three finishes, the 31-year-old Canadian is fifth in the standings.

Former Boise State golfer and current Meridian resident Graham DeLaet is in position to make a run at the PGA Tour's FedExCup and the $10 million prize that comes with it.

DeLaet shot 67 on Monday to finish tied for 28th at the BMW Championship, the third of four playoff events. He dropped from fifth to seventh in the FedExCup standings.

At the Tour Championship, which is Thursday-Sunday in Atlanta, the top five players in the standings can win the FedExCup with a victory.

DeLaet needs to win — it would be his first PGA Tour victory — and have someone other than Tiger Woods or Henrik Stenson finish second. The top five in the final FedExCup standings receive bonuses of $1 million or more.
