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.
Patrick Cantlay clinches the final automatic spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team in a 6-hole playoff.
He had the most strokes gained putting (+14.6 in regulation) in single PGA Tour event since tracking began in 2004.
