PGA TOUR – #BLSPicks Win Bets & DraftKings (Tour Championship by Coca-Cola)

Updated: September 23, 2015


East Lake Golf Club, Atlanta, Georgia

Well, it all comes down to this! Most of this season has been dominated by the favorites in the field lifting the trophies at the end of nearly all the tournaments. Such was the case last week when Jason Day once again easily won his second event of the PGA Tour FedEx Cup Playoffs and his 5th overall on the season. It’s hard to imagine that anyone except Day or Jordan Spieth could win the season ending Cup and the hoard of cash that goes with it, but actually all the players in the field still mathematically have a chance (if you can believe that) and anyone in the top-5 in points will win the Cup with a win at East Lake. It’s really hard to bet on players with such short odds in fields of 100+ players most weeks, so our season has not been a great one. All the favorites are once again 10-1 or under this week with Day at a somewhat unbelievable 4-1. At this point it makes zero sense for us to take anyone except a relative long shot according to the odds. We’ll give DraftKings one more shot as well after Jim Furyk single-handedly screwed us last week with a withdrawal only a couple of holes into the tournament.

There have not been any significant changes to the par 70 course at East Lake in the past year. The always exciting par-3 18th hole (one of only 2 par-3 finishing holes on Tour) only surrendered 10 birdies over the entire tournament last year and should once again make for a thrilling finish at this season’s Tour Championship. All 30 in the field this week are exempt into the first three majors and the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship in 2016, a huge perk for playing well over the course of the entire season. As always in the South, the threat of rain and thunderstorms will linger throughout the weekend. Here’s how we will play the last event of the 2014-2015 PGA Tour season.



LouisLouis Oosthuizen — (42-1) 

Louis always seems to play his best golf at the biggest events. Although this is only his second appearance at East Lake, he has top-20s in his last 2 starts in the playoffs. At 42-1 we’ll gladly take a flyer on the long-hitting South African.





HaasBill Haas — (72-1)

Bill  Haas won at East Lake in 2011 en route to winning the Fed Ex Cup. With that kind of history in Atlanta, Haas is a no brainer at 72-1. As you can see, the analysis this late in the season at a tournament with a field of just 30 players is rather basic.




BergerDaniel Berger — (72-1)

On the simplistic note, Daniel Berger finished 2nd last week, much like he did at The Honda Classic after losing in a playoff in the Spring. Let’s hope he stays hot and finds a way to pull off an upset as a rookie at The Tour Championship.
