The race for the 2013 FedEx Cup is set to come to an end this weekend. The Tour Championship will begin late Thursday morning at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.
Thirty golfers will be competing in the final tournament of the playoffs. Technically, each player still has a chance to win the Cup, depending on how the weekend plays out. Five participants, however, are guaranteed the $10 million prize with a first-place finish at the Tour Championship.
Tiger Woods is in line to win his third FedEx Cup in seven years, since he’s No.1 in the standings. Woods hasn’t won a major this year, but he’s in the lead with five PGA wins. No other golfer has more than two victories, and he’s near the top of the list with eight top 10 finishes. The No.1-ranked golfer is the clear-cut favorite to win the tourney with 4/1 odds.
Henrik Stenson lost the top spot in the standings, following the BMW Championship. His win at the Deutsche Bank Championship put him in contention to take home the Cup for the first time in his career. Bovada puts his odds at winning this weekend at 20/1.
Adam Scott, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar are the final three golfers that can clinch the Cup with a win at East Lake. Scott, the 2013 Masters winner, is considered to have the second-best chance of winning the tournament at 9/1. Johnson and Kuchar’s odds are listed at 20/1 and 22/1, respectively. Johnson put himself in position to take the Cup with a victory this past weekend.
