FedEx Cup 3rd Round Update

After the third round, my system for the FedEx Cup and the actual one give these results:

     Hunter Mahan, who started the week in 21st, is now in the lead in projected FedEx Cup points by way of his tie for first at 9-under.  The other player at -9, Aaron Baddeley, started in 27th and is now in 3rd.  Webb Simpson, who started the week in 1st, can win the FedEx Cup if Aaron Baddeley wins the Tour Championship, even though Simpson is 8 shots behind the lead in that event.

     If I ran the FedEx Cup, Luke Donald would still be in the lead, with a handicap-added score of -4.  Second place would go to Jason Day at -2, and Simpson and K.J. Choi would be right behind at -1.  Each of those players began the week in the top 13 of the standings.  Mahan would have a score of +1, and Baddeley would have a score of +4.
