• If Jim Furyk wins the TOUR Championship, Horschel wins the FedExCup by finishing solo second
• If Rickie Fowler wins the TOUR Championship, Horschel can win the FedExCup by finishing in a three-way tie for second

• If Justin Rose wins the TOUR Championship, Horschel can win the FedExCup by finishing in a tie for sixth
Rory McIlroy (Currently T1; projected 2nd)
• If he wins the TOUR Championship, he wins the FedExCup
• If Fowler wins the TOUR Championship, McIlroy would tie Fowler with a solo second, resulting in a playoff for the FedExCup
