A strong showing in this week’s Deutsche Bank Championship could land Hunter Mahan on the Ryder Cup team.

The only golfer to play in all 29 FedEx Cup playoff tournaments to date is the same one who is currently leading the points race, which means he has the inside track at the $10 million prize that comes with winning it.

By emerging from a large Sunday scrum and capturing the Barclays by two shots, Hunter Mahan guaranteed himself a spot in the next three playoff events — which will make him 32 for 32 — beginning with the Deutsche Bank Championship, starting Friday at TPC Boston.

Of the four playoff tournaments, the DBC is the one in which Mahan has had the least success (a tie for eighth in 2011 is his best showing). But since the playoff format made its debut in 2007, he has been the one always playing.

There is something to be said about having a chance to win every time you play.
