Jason Day has some big names chasing him down as the fourth round of the Deutsche Bank Championship is shaping up to be a real barn burner.

The leaderboard is littered with big stars from the PGA Tour, looking to cement their chances for PGA Player of the Year and the FedEx Cup prize and the money along with it.

Jason Day is -16 followed by Brandt Snedeker -15, Luke Donald -14 plus six very good players at -12, including Steve Stricker, Charley Hoffman, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott, Charley Wi, and Geoff Ogilvy.

Ogilvy very quietly could wrap up PGA Player of the Year with a third win this season.

Phil Mickelson can overtake Tiger Woods as the No. 1 player in the World with a win here as the tension builds for the final weeks of the PGA Tour.

Justin Leonard is at minus 11 and has a chance as well to grasp the bottom of the FedEx Cup, and hopes to raise it over his head at the Players Championship.

The top 70 players left in the FedEx Cup standings advance to next week in Cog Hill where the field will be narrowed down to just 30 players for the Players Championship.

Tiger Woods remains a distant nine shots out of the lead at minus seven as many guys are simply hitting better quality shots.

My Yahoo Fantasy golf team this week of Stricker, McIIroy, Villegas, and Kuchar has gained a little ground the last two days but I have slipped to a miserable 82nd percentile, rank 27,195 and 4922 points.

I am currently only ahead of one expert on Yahoo, as the rest have surged by me in my  last two attempts at figuring out who's going to win week to week on the PGA Tour. Which in reality, could drive you mad.

Fantasy Golf is very difficult.

Tomorrow will be a heck of a round to watch on Labor Day, as many good players try to stay eligible for two more weeks of playoff golf with that big FedEx Cup prize awaiting.

I would like Steve Stricker, my fantasy pick to get hot, I suppose.
