The Dallas native is currently leading the FedEx Cup Standings, just ahead of 2012 Masters winner Bubba Wason and Phil Mickelson.

Oklahoma State golfer and Dallas native Hunter Mahan is having a very good 2012 season so far. He was in contention at the Masters just one week ago and finished 12th at the Masters and he already has two wins in 2012 season and three top-10 finishes.

The two wins for Mahan came at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship and the Shell Houston Open, and out of eight events this year only once has Mahan finished outside of the top 25 which was a 42nd finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Mahan's early season success has vaulted him to be the PGA leader in FedEx Cup Standings with 1,378 points and is just ahead of 2012 Masters winner Bubba Watson who is in second place with 1,322 points, and coming in third place is Phil Mickelson who has 1,136 points.
