TOUR Championship begins in Atlanta Thursday
By Zach Cohen
Tees Off: Thursday, September 24th
East Lake Golf Club – Atlanta, GA
The golfers head to East Lake Golf Club on Thursday, as they’ll all be looking to win the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola. The TOUR Championship is the final event of the season and Jason Day will be looking to finish the year off as the No. 1 golfer. East Lake Golf Club features a course that runs 7,324 yards. The course record was a 60 that Zach Johnson shot back in 2007. He did not win that tournament though, as Tiger Woods emerged as the winner that year. Woods, along with Phil Mickelson, has won two Tour Championships but did not qualify for this tournament. Woods did not even qualify for the playoffs at all this season. Last year, Billy Horschel won here with a score of 11-under. Henrik Stenson won the year before with a score of 13-under and Brandt Snedeker was the winner in 2012 with a 10-under. Prior to those three tournaments, four straight Tour Championship winners shot in the single digits under par. With all of that in mind, let’s now take a look at who could be coming away with a victory this weekend:
Jason Day (3-to-1) – In terms of making a suggestion on who to pick as the winner of this tournament, it’d be foolish not to mention Day. His odds really aren’t that great, but that’s because he’s just been so much better than everybody else the past few tournaments. Day was 18-under after two days at the BMW Championship last weekend and was really just playing against himself the final two rounds. Day has won four of the past eight tournaments he has played in and has finished in the top-12 in all of the others. He has an incredibly high floor and is worth putting a few units on before Thursday’s tournament begins.
Jordan Spieth (8-to-1) – Spieth is the only player on the tour who has had a stretch as dominant as Day’s most recent one. The 22-year-old won both The Masters and US Open before finishing tied for fourth at the Open Championship and in second at the PGA Championship. He seems to always come up big in the most important tournaments, but he did miss two straight cuts before tying for 13th at the BMW Championship last weekend. Regardless, Spieth shot an 11-under last weekend and showed flashes of regaining his form from the middle of the season. He has relatively good odds for a guy who is unbeatable when at the top of his game and is worth placing a unit or two on as he tries to reclaim his position as the best in the world.
Brandt Snedeker (50-to-1) – Snedeker has not been playing his best golf recently, finishing 43rd or worse in three of the past four tournaments and missing the cut in the other. He is, however, incredible on the greens and that makes him a threat whenever he is playing. Snedeker is seventh on the tour in total strokes gained putting with 41.9. He won this tournament back in 2012 and is familiar with the course. He’s a good play at 50-to-1 and should be able to perform at a high level here this weekend.
Jimmy Walker (80-to-1) – Walker looked like one of the best golfers in the world during the first half of this season, but he really struggled after finishing tied for second at the Byron Nelson on May 28. Walker did, however, shoot under par for the tournament at the BMW Championship. It was the first time he did that since July and he is trending in the right direction heading into this one. Walker is first on the tour in total putts gained at 46.0 and his ability to work the greens gives him a shot to win. He’s worth placing a unit on at 80-to-1 this weekend.September 23, 2015 at 7:23 pm #5233

BELMONT PARK #5 at 03:10 PM Eastern
Top Pick: #8 (MOHICAN CHIEF) (5-2) – Very lightly-raced, grey gelding has been competitive in all four starts to date. Four-year-old rallied to just miss going 8.5-furlongs facing tougher at Saratoga Aug 23. He’s worked a bullet half-mile since, is dropping in class, and he should love this 9-furlong distance.
2nd Pick: #2 (Plundering) (3-1) – He has more speed than most entered and has finished second at Saratoga in two straight at this level. Colt breaks just off the rail and should be involved from start-to-finish.
3rd Pick: #10 (Touch of Paradise) (8-1) – Long shot rallied to finish close up at this tag Aug 28 at Saratoga. His post is of no help, but he’s the type that can ‘run all day’ and he can grab a share if able to avoid a wide trip.
4th Pick: #3 (Whippo) (9-2) – He rallied to miss by a ‘nose’ racing at this level Aug 28 at Saratoga. It was a big improvement over his debut and this well bred 3-year-old must be left in the mix.September 24, 2015 at 1:54 pm #5327
