With the Deutsche Bank Championship coming to a close on Monday, the field for this week's event is cut down to the top 70 players left in the FedExCup playoffs.

Chris Kirk made three big putts and captured the biggest win of his career Monday in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Whether that was enough for U.S. captain Tom Watson to add him to the Ryder Cup team was the least of his concerns.

Austin Ernst, who parred the first playoff hole to defeat I.K. Kim and win the Portland Classic on Sunday, jumped 71 spots in this week's world rankings.

When three of Europe's biggest names failed to automatically qualify for the Ryder Cup team, the equation appeared simple for captain Paul McGinley as he prepared to select his three wild cards.

Austin Ernst won the LPGA Tour's Portland Classic on Sunday with a par on the first hole of a playoff against South Korea's I.K. Kim.
