Woods rues Tour Championship absence after glory of comeback title

PGA Tour: A guide to the wild new Tour Championship format World's best golfers poised for bizarre Tour Championship where $15m winner may not be player to hit fewest shots

The victor of the TOUR Championship will take home a cool $15 million for winning the FedEx Cup. The players will start in varied spots on the leaderboard depending on where they now stand on the FedEx Cup points list. For example, Koepka, together with three wins, one important and eight shirt 10therefore, may well wonder why he must concede three shots to Thomas, with one win and six top 10s.

Webb Simpson, Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele follow at 22/1, 25/1 and 28/1 respectively. 11 through 15, are 3-under before the tournament starts.

"If the FedEx Cup wants to have this legacy in the game like other championships do, is people starting the tournament on different numbers the best way to do it?" 21-25, Marc Leishman, Tommy Fleetwood, Corey Conners, Sungjae Im and Chez Reavie will start at 1-under.

Tiger Woods, the only two time FedEx Cup champion (2007, 2009) won't be at East Lake to defend his title because he finished No. 42 in the point standings despite winning the Masters in April, and Shane Lowry (No. 33) barely missed despite winning the Open Championship at Royal Portrush last month.

Other top players missing the finale are several who have been FedEx contenders in the past, including Phil Mickelson (No. 47), Jason Day (No. 54), Francesco Molinari (No. 40) and Ian Poulter (No. 41).

Justin Thomas lived it two years ago when he capped off his best year by capturing the FedEx Cup with a runner-up finish in the Tour Championship.

"Everyone's goal coming into this week was to be on that 10-under mark", added McIlroy. The Tour Championship is about a year's work, with heavy emphasis on the playoff events. That doesn't bode well for a player who's never finished on top of the leaderboard at a FedEx Cup Playoff event. By reaching the Tour Championship, he effectively is in all four majors. That gets her an exemption into the U.S. Women's Open and Women's British Open next year if she stays amateur. McIlroy, who tied for sixth and tied for 16th in the first two playoff events, tied for second at East Lake in 2014 and tied for seventh past year.

Djokovic and Osaka top seeds for US Open
Sharapova has not defeated Williams since 2004 and faces a monumental challenge against the American, who was beaten in the U.S. Australia's Ashleigh Barty, who was recently displaced as World No. 1 by Osaka, landed the No. 2 seed on the women's side.

So instead of starting Thursday's first round with all players at even par, Thomas will tee off at 10 under, with No. 2 Patrick Cantlay at 8 under and subsequent decreases down to players 26 through 30 beginning at even par. Rahm will head to hole No. 1 at 1:45 p.m. ET on Thursday alongside Rory McIlroy, one of the latest 2019 Tour Championship tee times. "I am sure guys will try to make it confusing when guys try to tell you, well, this guy would have won because he shot 280".

I watched the majority of the BMW Championship last week. If he had finished in a two-way tie for second, he would have won the cup.

Jon Rahm, meanwhile is 14/1 to finish top of the leaderboard on Sunday.

Hideki Matsuyama, Japan - Played himself into a strong position heading to the Tour Championship by finishing alone in third place at the BMW Championship when he closed with his second 63 of the week. At 5/1, the Floridian is the bookmakers' third-favorite to win at East Lake, where his best result is a sixth place in 2017. An innovative format change attempts to eliminate confusion over who can win the FedEx Cup. Rose tied for 10th in The Northern Trust, but could only tie for 52nd in BMW Championship. However, I think a top-five finish is certainly a possibility. One huge shocker the model is calling for: Koepka, a four-time major victor and one of the top Vegas favorites to win it all this week, makes a strong push but falls short of winning the title.

"And then I got home, and I went to get money out of the ATM - 18 years old, I have a debit card", he said.

Rory McIlroy is closing in on $50 million in career earnings on the golf course, and that's only from the PGA Tour.
