This season the conclusion of season finale has been shaken up before the event even begins, and we enter the field of handicaps. Justin Thomas who heads the positions starts on 10 under par and the remainder are allocated beginning scores all the way. The goal was to get the winner of this event automatically winning the Fedex (generally the case anyway ) but the starting scores seem so unfair today that the week is upon us. The bookmakers thankfully priced the 72 hole marketplace which I am sure this week will see a whole lot of activity and saw the shake. That being said Im not a fan of investing in a market where a player does understand where he stands and benefit from winning it. The possibility of a deceased heat looms big.
East Lake is a track we know well that benefits tee to green excellence. It is a long enough par 70 in 7300+ yards so an ability to hit it straight and long is a enormous advantage around this design and also the coarse is frequently troublesome. The fairways are just one of the narrow on the program so driving accuracy is unquestionably asset to check towards when selecting those who might overcome their handicaps. After his performance last week Justin Thomas heads the leaderboard and for its Fedex Cup the betting consequently. He will prove hard to prevent given his record reads 7-2-6 beginning from scratch scores. Pressure will be around for four times you instead of the two in the weekend should the leaderboard be shook up come and it wouldnt surprise me.
The one most likely to love the challenge is RORY MCLLORY ??8/1 (1/5 4 places). He knows for certain he has the capacity of winning an event and thus overturning Thomas lead. In the same time McIlroy and Thomas have performed of those 8 rounds, the Irishman has won 5 of these to Thomas 1 plus with two ties. If this trend continues we can see his urge to land another name here along with McIlroy getting nearer to the guide Sunday come and the Fedex decoration may surpass everyone else since he has been left behind somewhat over the past couple of weeks. Having been questioned regarding his ability at groups and getting on the line in the lead into this season McIlroy has proved the doubters wrong with two wins and a host of other finishes. The players above him although in a good position have taken to East Lake in the last several decades. In 10 attempts the very ideal Cantlay Koepka and Reed could muster is a 6th placed spot with being 13th. Tons of negatives present the players above McIlroy pub the chief to themselves. With his results against Thomas here in the last few years along with the efforts by others I believe McIlroy must be a solid play at the marketplace including the scores that are beginning.
3pts each-way R.McIlroy 8/1 (1/5 4 places)
PAUL CASEY ??(With no Fedex Starting Strokes) 28/1 (1/5 5) ??ranks 3rd in Complete Scoring here at East Lake in this field and can be expected to benefit marginally in the arrangement. We have all seen the way the Englishman awarded the 72 hole scrape leaderboard will not be anyones priority this week and has struggled to get over the line at times Casey may just stumble upon a triumph. He has four top 5 finishes in his last five attempts and generally ranks quite high in the sections crucial to scoring here. Like the Valspar that is one of the favourite haunts of Casey and the 72 hole scratch event looks like something, even though the prize looks out of his grasp he can win without understanding its materialising.??
