Right away on Monday morning, the only odds available were to win the Tour Championship, which means staggered strokes are in play. That means, obviously, the guy who enters the tournament with the two-stroke advantage is the betting favorite.

Scottie Scheffler sat atop the FedEx Cup for 23 weeks before Will Zalatoris overtook him with his FedEx St. Jude win. A third-place finish at the BMW Championship for Scheffler and Zalatoris' withdrawal due to a back injury, though, got Scheffler back on top over his longtime friend and fellow Dallas native.

Scheffler, BMW winner (for the second straight year) Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele are pretty consistent with where they stand across all sportsbooks. Scheffler, given his dominance during the "regular season," is expected to maintain his lead and win the $18 million prize for winning the FedEx Cup.

How It Works

So, why is Scheffler such a massive favorite? Well, as I mentioned above, he is starting with a two-stroke lead on the rest of the field.

The way the FedEx Cup used to be decided at the Tour Championship was just by playing the tournament as usual, and applying points to the event for each winning position. For example, Tiger Woods won the actual Tour Championship event in 2018, but Justin Rose won the FedEx Cup.

That format has since changed so the guy who wins the Tour Championship event, you know, actually wins the Tour Championship.

With that came staggered scoring. The guy who enters the Tour Championship atop the FedEx Cup standings gets a two-stroke edge over the second-place player, all the way down to a 10-stroke edge over the guys toward the bottom.

Here's how they'll all start out this week at East Lake:

Prize Money

Last place at the Tour Championship, just for being among the final 30 players standing in the chase for the FedEx Cup, gets $500,000. It’s a reward for what clearly has been a great season, which makes a trip to East Lake so special every year.

The FedEx Cup winner in past years has gotten $15 million, but that number is up to $18 million in 2022. Second place gets $6.5 million, third gets $5 million, continuing to decrease all the way to the last millionaire of the week, which is in 10th place ($1 million).

The Course

East Lake Country Club is a par-70 that measures just shy of 7,350 yards. That’s a bit lengthy compared to what players usually see from courses with only two par 5s.

The winning score without the staggered start is usually in the low teens, with Kevin Na and Jon Rahm shooting 14-under last year. Xander Schauffele was the low man in 2020 at 15-under, and it was Rory McIlroy the year before. Of those players, only McIlroy actually won the FedEx Cup.

Prior to that, when staggered scoring wasn’t involved, Tiger Woods won at 11-under in 2018, then Schauffele and McIlroy both were 12-under when they won the previous two years.

Approach play will be the key facet of players' games this week, although distance off the tee will obviously be a boost, as well.
