Jason Day is at it again.

With his win at The Barclays, the first leg of the PGA Tour's FedExCup Playoffs, Day has now won three of his last four starts and sits atop the FedExCup standings for the first time. Day was absolutely brilliant on Sunday, shooting a tournament-best 62 to best second-place finisher Henrik Stenson by six strokes. And don't forget that Day shot a 63 on Saturday.

In a tournament that saw Jordan Spieth miss the cut and relinquish his short reign as the number one player in the world, Day took advantage and put on a Spieth-like putting display, especially on the back nine on Sunday, to coast to victory and confirm his place in the "best player in the world" argument. After shooting a record 20-under at the PGA Championship, the best score in relation to par in major championship history, he followed up with a 19-under total of 261 at beautiful Plainfield Country Club in Edison, New Jersey (yes, that's the reason for all of the Bon Jovi during the CBS coverage).

Along with 99 others, Day will tee it up once again starting Friday (take note of the holiday and the Monday finish) at the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston. Notable names that failed to put themselves in the top 100 include Adam Scott, Padraig Harrington, and Stewart Cink. A total of 25 players were eliminated from the playoffs.
