Tour Championship: Golf’s best vie for $10 million
The 2016-2017 PGA Tour season comes to its conclusion this week.
The top 30 players in the FedEx Cup head to East Lake Golf Club for the Tour Championship. East Lake is one of the tougher tests on tour, with single digits under par coming out on top in five of the previous 10 FedEx Cup finales.
Jordan Spieth enters as the favorite at +500 with Dustin Johnson just behind him at +750.
The course plays long for a par 70 at around 7,300 yards and lends itself to players who can keep the driver in the fairway. The rough is some of the toughest on tour when players get off line. They don’t necessarily need to be long – only three of the last 10 winners entered in the top 50 in driving distance – but they need to find a way to gain strokes with the driver with a combination of good length and accuracy.
Here’s a look at my full card, which targets this type of player.
I’ll be back later in the week to break down all the plays and provide some matchups and props as well.
