Everything you need to know in a still-volatile FedEx Cup

MEDINAH, Ill. -- Patrick Reed's victory on Sunday at the Northern Trust highlighted a very real truth about the volatility of the FedEx Cup playoffs: A single victory is worth far more than any other win, including the major championships.

Reed, 29, won for the first time since he captured the 2018 Masters. Languishing in 50th place in the FedEx Cup standings -- meaning his spot in next week's Tour Championship was hardly assured -- Reed vaulted up the standings with his one-shot victory over Abraham Ancer into second place behind Brooks Koepka heading into this week's BMW Championship at Medinah Country Club.
