FedEx Cup Standings 2012: Dustin Johnson Vaults Into Top 20

Dustin Johnson didn't earn a single FedEx Cup point while he sat out three months with a back injury. After winning the FedEx St. Jude Classic, Johnson ascended into into the Top 20 in the FedEx Cup Standings for 2012.

Johnson jumped 54 spots from No. 72 to No. 18 on the FedEx Cup leaderboard with 898 points in just nine events. That puts him 837 points behind leader Jason Duffner. Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are the only golfers above Johnson who have competed in nine or fewer events.

McIlroy moved up two spots after his finish at the St. Jude Classic, but missed a chance to rise even higher when he double-bogeyed 18 on Sunday with the tournament title still in his sights. The Irishman leapfrogged Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar to land at No. 6.
