2021 TOUR Championship Odds: Shooting For $15 Million In Golf’s Biggest Money Event

Just 30 PGA pros remain in the quest for the FedExCup. But only a handful have a shot to win the $15 million bonus prize for first place prize at the 2021 TOUR Championship. The modified and staggered strokes-based scoring system (FedEx Starting Stokes) adds a wrinkle to the scoring for the third straight year. This year’s leader is Patrick Cantlay, who won last week’s BMW Championship in a six-hole playoff over Bryson DeChambeau with a record putting performance.

Various was you can bet to win on the TOUR Championship, from starting staggered strokes to 72-hole lowest score. Be sure you check the sportsbook odds and my early TOUR Championship preview at TheLines, and understand the different options when betting this week.

The TOUR Championship winner is likely from the top-5 players, whose starting strokes and odds to win at FanDuel Sportsbook are:

  1. Patrick Cantlay (-10): +380
  2. Tony Finau (-8): +650
  3. Bryson DeChambeau (-7): +500
  4. Jon Rahm (-6): +380
  5. Cameron Smith (-5): +2200

The next five players start at 4-under par:

  • Justin Thomas (+1800)
  • Harris English (+3700)
  • Abraham Ancer (+3400)
  • Jordan Spieth (+2600)
  • Sam Burns (+3700)
