Golf: The Tour Championship Preview - FedEx Cup playoff #4

This is what we have been waiting for: the FedEx Cup final playoff when we will finally see if all the fuss has been worth it and whether any man is worth 10 million dollars just for hitting a little golf ball around (as my old Mum so elegantly puts it). So it all comes down to the TOUR Championship this weekend with five players realistically in with a chance of taking the title (and the money!) The top five in the FedEx Cup point standings:

Tiger Woods
Steve Stricker
Phil Mickelson
Rory Sabbatini
K.J. Choi
(the winner of this event is awarded 10300 points)

All the experts are suggesting Tiger is in hot form and will run away with this one too, but we are talking about the top 30 golfers here and none of them are going to lie down. It is interesting to note that Tiger has only won this tournament once (1999) and the tournament has had 10 different winners in 10 years. My heart goes with Steve Stricker who has definitely been the surprise packet of the FedEx Cup playoffs! However, I still think that Tiger will win this one and will earn the 10 million dollars for his fledgling retirement fund!

Stay tuned for Tomorrows article "Who can win the fedex cup and what they need to do it!" where I will explain what scenarios need to occur for each player to win. If you are still confused by this strange new golf tournament you can read my earlier article FedEx Cup Explained
