The final groups are preparing to tee off in the BMW Championship and there are several players with late tee times who stand to have a big impact on the bubble:

The 1:05 p.m. pairing of Corey Conners and Denny McCarthy will be particularly consequential. McCarthy began Sunday in 10th place to sit 29th in the projected FedExCup standings. Conners was T8 through 54 holes and began the final round 28th in the projected standings.  To illustrate how quickly things can change, McCarthy had already fallen to 31st in the projected standings before he teed off (by virtue of K.H. Lee passing him on the leaderboard).

McCarthy is looking for his first TOUR Championship appearance. Conners is looking for his second straight start at East Lake, and third in the last four years. At sixth in the International Team’s Presidents Cup standings, he is all but a lock to qualify for his first Presidents Cup at day’s end, as well.

Conners and McCarthy could have a large impact on the bubble. With a good day, they could rocket up the FedExCup standings but they’re only a few strokes from falling outside the top 30, as well.

Aaron Wise, who tees off one group after Conners and McCarthy, is in a similar position. Wise started Sunday at T6 in the BMW and was projected to jump from 31st to 25th in the standings. Wise is looking for his first TOUR Championship appearance since his Rookie of the Year season of 2018.

Adam Scott, who was T4 through 54 holes, looks to make East Lake after starting the FedExCup at No. 77 in the standings.

The biggest move, though, is being made by Scott Stallings, who is T2 after 54 holes. He started the week at 46th in the standings but is projected to move to 16th. He has won three times on the PGA TOUR but is seeking his first TOUR Championship start in his 12th season.

Last year, K.H. Lee was the odd man out. He finished 31st in the FedExCup after hitting his approach to the BMW’s 72nd hole into a penalty area and making a bogey. He’s trying to avoid a similar fate this year. Lee made birdie on his first four holes Sunday to move into 29th in the projected standings. Lee won the AT&T Byron Nelson in both 2021 and 2022. He wants this season to end at East Lake, however. Lee came out firing, as all four of his birdies came on putts of 12 feet or less. A strong finish at the BMW Championship also will help Lee’s candidacy for this year’s International Presidents Cup team. Lee, who’s looking to make his Presidents Cup debut, entered the week ranked ninth in the team’s standings. The top eight after Sunday will automatically qualify for the team, and Captain Trevor Immelman will round out his squad with four Captain’s Picks.
