Hunter Mahan and Aaron Baddley started the day in the lead of the 2011 Tour Championship, but Bill Haas appears to be playing himself to a massive payday on Sunday. Through 17 holes, Haas is three-under par on the day and leads the tournament at nine-under. Haas also leads the projected FedEx Cup points, and is well on his way to taking home both the current tournament and the playoff victory.
Barring a major collapse and a big run by someone else, Haas is about to take home a payday well into the seven figures. Jason Day is one shot behind at eight-under through 16, while Mahan is eight-under through 15. Baddley, also through 15 holes, is seven-under par. These players are all well behind Haas in the projected overall points, but it's close. We could yet have a shake-up at the Tour Championship.
