Golf betting games fans know that The Tour Championship will wrap up the PGA Tour season and the first ever FedExCup as 30 players compete for the title. Although 30 players made the field for The Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, only five players can win the FedExCup in golf betting games.
The prize for the FedExCup is $10 million and Tiger Woods is the heavy favorite in golf betting games. He leads Steve Stricker, Phil Mickelson, Rory Sabbatini and K.J. Choi. All of the other golfers are too far back to win in golf betting games.
Golf betting games fans know that since 1987 no player has ever won The Tour Championship twice. Four players will try to end that streak this weekend in golf betting games. Woods, Mickelson, Vijay Singh and defending champion Adam Scott are previous winners. Golf betting games fans know that Woods won his 60th PGA Tour title at the BMW Championship by shooting a final round 63. He is the heavy golf betting games favorite this week as well.
Golf betting games fans know that because of severe heat and drought in Atlanta, the bentgrass greens at East Lake are in bad shape. Players are not even being allowed to practice on the greens until the tournament begins. That is unheard of in golf and tells you how bad the course looks. It could affect the golf odds. "If the greens are bad, then everyone putts the same, pretty much," Scott Verplank said, "If you're a good putter, you want to putt on good greens. You want to be able to use that advantage."
Golf betting games fans know that only two players have finished in the top 10 in all three FedExCup golf betting games thus far, Steve Stricker and Rory Sabbatini. Golf betting games fans know that there are eight players in The Tour Championship for the first time and on the golf odds board. They are Brandt Snedeker, Aaron Baddeley, Jonathan Byrd, Hunter Mahan, Justin Rose, Heath Slocum, Camilo Villegas and Boo Weekley.
Golf odds fans know that Vijay Singh made the field for The Tour Championship but he is not playing well. He has a bad back and is working on swing changes. He is probably not a good golf odds choice this week. The only good news for Singh is that he has finished in the top 10 the last five years in The Tour Championship.
