Tour Championship betting breakdown: Going back to Rose

Tour Championship betting breakdown: Going back to Rose article feature image

Nobody has been more consistent in recent history at the Tour Championship than Justin Rose.

Rose has finished second twice, fourth and sixth in his last four trips to East Lake. He’s also been playing well in the playoffs, with a second last week to go with two 10th place finishes.

So, I’ve started off my card with Rose at 14/1.

I’m also identified Marc Leishman at the top as well at 18/1.

Leishman can take down the FedEx Cup title with another win, and in three of 10 playoffs, the winner of the BMW Championship backed it up with a win at the Tour Championship. Tiger Woods pulled the feat off in 2007, while Camilo Villegas and Billy Horschel joined the list in 2008 and 2014.

Leishman is playing the best golf of his career, and winning the Tour Championship would his biggest highlight to date.

I’ll be back later to break down the mid-tier and longshot plays.
