The last stop of the FedEx cup playoffs will begin this Thursday at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta Georgia as the top 30 ranked golfers in the World are ready to do battle for PGA tour supremacy and a massive pay day.
The top ranked golfers all appear to be in fine form down the stretch and it proves credence to the fact that the top 10 ranked golfers on tour are more than capable of winning any given tournament regardless of the obstacles.
Heading into this week's final Tour stop the last two week’s winners are none other than Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy, two of the most prolific golfers in the world. This week they headline the list of heavy favourites to win the Tour Championship at Sportingbet Canada

Dustin Johnson (5.50): Looking for his fourth Tour win this season and third top-10 finish in three weeks DJ will look to continue his stellar play and isn’t showing any signs of weakness in his game. He has really done a great job at putting efficiency this season and with any luck the big South Carolinian will find himself in the hunt on Sunday.
Rory McIlroy (7.00): Rory started the season sluggish compared to his career norm although the young Irishman has really been a force down the stretch run. Two weeks ago McIlroy pulled away to win the Deutsche Bank Championship with weekend rounds of 66 and 65 to finish the week with an impressive score of 15 strokes under par.
Jordan Spieth (9.00): The 2016 season hasn’t been as prosperous for Jordan Spieth as last year although the 22-year old has managed to win two tournaments this season and has made an impressive 18 of 20 cuts on the year. Spieth has made the top 15 in four of his last seven events and last week carded a score of 11-under on the week, good enough for 9th place at the BMW Championship. With his touch around the green and his lights out putting he will certainly be in the mix for this one.
Jason Day (10.00): After starting this season on a torrid pace Australian Jason Day has slowed down at the worst possible time. Despite his recent swoon Day has still made 17 of 18 cuts with two victories and an impressive nine top-10 finishes. The only cause for concern for Day this week is the fact that he had to pull out of last weeks BMW Championship on Sunday with back tightness. He has already said he will be ready to roll on Thursday but that pesky back may be worth watching.
Adam Scott (11.00): At 11-1 odds this is about as close to a high value futures bet one could ask for given such a small field. Scott has made the cut in all 18 of his events this year with two victories under his belt. What’s more impressive is the fact that he has fired off three consecutive fourth place finishes in his last three events, and before that was a T18th finish at the PGA Championship. Will this be the week he turns those fourth place finishes into a victory?
Patrick Reed (21.00): Patrick Reed has quietly put together quite the nice season this year with an impressive eleven top-10 finishes and made 25/28 cuts. Reed’s lone win on tour this year came four weeks ago with an impressive nine under victory at the Barclay’s Championship. Reed has all the talent in the world although the 26-year old Texan has battled consistency issues in recording four consecutive quality rounds.
Jimmy Walker (34.00): Walker has had a bit of a frustrating season this year compared to recent years and none more evident is his most recent five events. Walker won the PGA Championship back on July 28th and then followed that up with two consecutive missed cuts at the Barclay’s and the Wyndham Championship. Then in his very next event he posted an impressive 12-under total at the Deutsche Bank Championship which was enough for a third place finish. A T13 at the BMW last week and there we stand not knowing the fate for this week for one of the most consistent golfers over the last ten years.
