I shot an 88 the other day and was jumping for joy. I couldn't even imagine what shooting a 59 must feel like.
With the Tour Championship around the corner, it should be a classic and many players will have the opportunity of taking the crown and as we know, East Lake Golf Club is very beautiful but can be a challenge on any given weekend. This week’s jaw dropping field will include Adam Scott, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, BMW Championship winner Zach Johnson, long drive machine Dustin Johnson and Mr. 59 Jim Furyk as well as many others and like I’ve said before, they will all be fighting for it as we’ve seen many players with missed opportunities and they would love to do nothing else better then to get a win in the last big tournament of the season. There are many great players to watch out for and I would almost pick Zach Johnson again but as we all know, it’s tough to win in back to back weeks and since it’s the last big tournament of the year, every player in this field will be going blow for blow and I don’t think Zach would be ready for it. Also, another thing to keep in mind is that Phil and Steve Stricker have been in every Tour Championship in its seven year history so these guys have a ton of experience at this tournament and will be threats to steal the show despite Phil being fairly quiet recently. The one thing about the Tour Championship is that you just never know who will win as we’ve seen before so it’s anyone’s golf tournament but I have a feeling that one of the top players will take it as there have been many missed opportunities for some of them so they’re very thirsty. Some are even looking for their first win of the season.
The guy I’m taking is one of the guys who I said has been in every Tour Championship and that is Steve Stricker. He’s quietly been one of the best players on Tour this year and I’m sure he really wants to get that first win at the Tour Championship and there won’t be no better time than now to do so. He has a ton of experience at this tournament and this is his chance to show that experience and to take down anyone in his way. He’s also overall, had a good FedEx Cup playoffs and if he can just turn it up a notch in the Tour Championship then he will definitely take the title. He’s going to have an advantage after coming off a solid performance at the BMW Championship. So keep an eye out for Steve Stricker as he tries to make an attempt to get his first FedEx Cup title.
