Tiger in town locked and loaded at Eastlake for Tour Championship
The number 1 player in the world looks to finish off the tour season with a big win here in Atlanta at the Eastlake golf course for the tour championship presented by Coke. A win will give Woods the 10 million dollar purse given to the winner of the FedEx cup points that’s tallied throughout the season based off wins and top 10 finishes basically.
The Tour Championship kicks off today and the Top 5 players in the FedEx Cup standings all have a shot at the big money with a win this weekend. Henrik Stenson, Matt Kuchar, Adam Scott, and Dustin Johnson are all in striking distance along with Tiger.
Phil Mickelson and Adam Scott could also challenge Tiger for the Player of the Year with a win over the weekend. Highly unlikely though as Tiger has 5 wins on tour with 7 Top Ten finishes blowing the competition away literally. Even though Lefty and Adam have majors under their belt this year I expect Tiger to win the honors again despite anything catastrophic this weekend.
For the normal player it’s the best year of their career but for Tiger it’s just another normal year coming up empty in “major hunting”, I’m Just Saying Though
