After three rounds, Henrik Stenson remains your leader and has played some tremendous golf. However, he had a massive nine stroke lead over Dustin Johnson and would’ve put this thing away a day early barring an amazing collapse during Sunday’s finale. If he strikes the ball like he did the first three days then he’ll defnitely walk away with the FedEx Cup and the 10 million dollars. Can he go wire to wire and pull out the victory? That would be very interesting to see no doubt.
One of the best wire to wire performances I remember was when Jason Bohn came out of nowhere to go wire to wire to win the Zurich Classic and that was pretty sweet considering who he was. Henrik can run away with it but we must remember that Dustin Johnson is the best on Tour when it comes to eagle opportunities (Pretty boss huh) and that’s a major advantage he has over Stenson. Steve Stricker is good at every category except for driving distance but as I’ve said, East Lake is a control players’ course anyway so I can’t see why Stricker wouldn’t be in the middle of this either.
So right now, it’s a battle between Henrik, DJ and Strick on who wins this year’s FedEx Cup but if Henrik keeps up his play and not fall apart on the back nine then this tournament is a wrap folks! I hope you’re ready for an exciting finish as some of the best players in the world try to win that shiny trophy and get them big dollars (Dolla dolla bill ya’ll!).

Day two is wrapped up for this year’s “Super Bowl of Golf” and the man who started out this tournament red hot is still leading after finishing his round with a terrific run, sinking five birdies to really take charge. He’s a comfortable four shots ahead of second place Adam Scott who is -6 for the tournament. Jordan Speith surprised some folks with a charge placing him third on the leaderboard being five shots behind Stenson. Another surprise is seeing Dustin Johnson within the top 10 and for a control player course, East Lake wasn’t able to hold down arguably one of the best power hitters in golf history in DJ who finished -4 along with Billy Horschel and U.S. Open Champion and future hall of famer Justin Rose.
BMW Championship winner Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker who came into this event as favorites and are -3 for the tournament and still can get into contention if Stenson starts slowing down a bit. At this point though, the only person I really see staying into contention with Stenson is Adam Scott who, like I said before, can heat up at any moment. The only thing I would have to say is how clutch can he be?he would pretty much have to be matching Henrik shot for shot to catch up to him and take the lead. The biggest question is, how long can Henrik keep up this spectactular playing? Only time will tell. Here’s the full leaderboard

After round one, the “Underwear Bandit” strikes again! Henrik Stenson is your leader after finishing with a solid -6 performance after striking the ball very well and making putts when it mattered. MVP candidate Adam Scott is right on his trail however after he had a terrific round where he led the field in average driving distance and was still as accurate as he had been when he at the Masters. Surely we should expect a great tournament from Adam and he knows how to stay in contention throughput an entire tournament and he’s proven that all year long. Every tournament you looked on a leaderboard, you saw Adam Scott on there. He’s capable of hitting powerful and accurate shots. But Henrik Stenson was the star of the day after hitting four shots within five feet displaying incredible ball striking Henrik Stenson has always had and really showed it today after the first round of the Tour Championship. His ball striking was so good that he didn’t really have to worry about his putting and that’s how you win tournaments. If you could set yourself up in a great position for an easy putt then the chances of you winning the tournament are very high unless you one of those players who have trouble with short putts which happen all the time. My pick Steve Stricker is in third as he went -4.
See? What did I say? I was saying that Steve will come out the gate flying and start off with a bang like “Boomshakalaka” because after he collapsed at the BMW Championship, he doesn’t want nothing else better than to win golf’s Super Bowl. I’ll be sure to have another piece on the tournament tomorrow so keep it locked right here on the GP Golf Report for more analysis and news.
