Last week, We got another nice overall winner to Viktor Hovland (+1600) am BMW championship. If you’re following this section, that’s five absolute winners since we started creating this column just two months ago. Let’s see if we can replicate the magic at the Tour Championship.
The top 30 golfers from this year’s PGA Tour travel to East Lake Golf Club to determine the winner of the 2023 FedEx Cup. The course is par 70 and measures approximately 7,300 yards.
One important note: whether you are playing fantasy or betting at this tournament, it is very important that you understand the details of this week’s event. Due to the scoring system in place for the FedEx Playoffs, Scottie Scheffler will open the tournament with a 10-under par lead.
After his comeback win last weekend, Hovland is second at 8 under par while reigning champion Rory McIlroy is third at 7 under par. Jon Rahm (-6) and Lucas Glover (-5) round out the top five.
