Hunter Mahan wants FedExCup title

2014 08 454288074

Hunter Mahan is the only man to have made it to the FedExCup’s final round every year since it began in 2007. Now, with a win at The Barclays under his belt, the American is desperate to win the FedExCup outright.


Speaking prior to today’s Deutsche Bank Championship, Mahan was full of confidence and excited for the challenge ahead.

“I want to be the FedExCup champion, I was close a few years ago,” said the world No.19. “I just love where my game is at right now, so I want to play golf. I want to play this week and the next couple of weeks and everything.”

Having gone two years without a win before his Barclays triumph, the 2012 WGC-Accenture Matchplay Championship winner acknowledged it was time to refocus on his game.

“What I’ve tried to do the last month or two is try to go to the range, go to the practice green or chipping green and be very focused and not waste shots,” said the 32-year-old.

“Not just get up there and kind of go through the motions, but actually get better and focus on certain things and make sure I leave the golf course every day a better player, better prepared player for playing tournament golf.

“I’ve had a pretty impressive streak for the last seven years, I want to continue it this year. So it feels good having done that.”

The Barclays - Final Round

When the US Ryder Cup qualifying process finished Hunter Mahan was 15 places outside the automatic spots in 25th place. Although, after finishing 15th at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, seventh at the PGA Championship, then winning The Barclays, Mahan is determined to force his way into Tom Watson’s US team.

“Hopefully captain Watson was watching and liked what he saw,” said Mahan. “It gives me kind of a ray of hope there and some light.

“He texted me after the win and stuff and said congrats. He liked how I played. And so that was the first bit of communication we've had. Andy North and Steve Stricker texted me, as well.”
