Speaking ahead of the 2019 Tour Championship, Rory McIlroy finds the structure of the FedEx Cup confusing:
You can shoot the best score of the week and not win the tournament.
If that happens to someone it’s going to be hard for them to wrap their head around.
I get it from a fan experience point of view, I get it from giving guys that have played better throughout the year an advantage, but I don’t know — come back to me on Monday and I’ll tell you if it has worked.
We had breakfast with some of the sponsors and what I said to them was if the PGA Tour is trying to do this ‘season of championships,’ which starts with the Players in March, then goes through the four majors and culminates with the FedEx Cup at the end, if the FedEx Cup really wants to have this legacy in the game like some of these other championships, is people starting the tournament on different numbers the best way to do it?
Current betting odds
Justin Thomas is the clear bookies favourite coming into the event.
Patrick Cantlay is second in the odds to win the 2019 Tour Championship.
After a difficult spell in the post-season, Brooks Koepka is only third with the bookies to win this weekend.
While Northern Irish star Rory McIlroy is the fourth favourite to take home the title.
Looking at the other names who could cause an upset, Jon Rahmm, Patrick Reed and Webb Simpson are outsiders.
