Holding the No. 1 seed comes with some perks.
After winning two of the first three playoff events, Bryson DeChambeau will start the Tour Championship as the man to beat. But because of the points reset before the season’s final event, each of the 30 participants will have a mathematical chance to win the FedExCup with a victory at East Lake.
But none will have more favorable scenarios than DeChambeau, who can technically finish as low as 29th and still have a chance to win the $10 million top prize. While the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook listed DeChambeau at 150/1 to win the FedExCup when betting opened a year ago, he is now the 2/1 favorite heading into the final event.
Justin Rose, Tony Finau, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas are all guaranteed to win the season-long prize with a victory at East Lake. No. 30 seed Patton Kizzire has the longest shot, with whopping 5000/1 odds of going from last to first in a scenario that would include a Kizzire win and DeChambeau finishing T-29 or worse among a 30-player field.
