The Fedex Cup Tour Champ starting September 19th-22nd usually contains 30 players to compete. It is also known as the final occasion of the playoffs that will determine the Fedex Cup championship. To be candid, this match is going to be the final for this season. In time pass, The East Lake golf team has been the major organizer of this tournament prior to its change in 2008. The change was made to enable the Bermuda grass to grow stronger and faster. From the past champions, scoring has been difficult due to its change. Below is the list of the past champions record.


2003Chad Campbell - 16

2004 Retief Goosen - 11 
2005 Bart Bryant- 17 

2006 Adam Scott - 11 
2007 Tiger Woods - 23 
2008 Camilo Villegas - 7 
2009 Phil Mickelson - 9 
2010 Jim Furyk - 8 
2011 Bill Haas - 8 
2012 Brandt Snedeker - 10 

This record really shows that the game has been difficult when it comes to scoring. From research and visibility study, the most difficult to play is usually the 5th hole. It is a par 4 and can measure up to 520 yards. It is usually longer than par 5's on other courses. In some cases, you will find the 3's such the 18th hole demanding as well.

The record of Hunter Mahan 20/1, he has finished 4th in the current tournament. This dictate his best in the tournament ever since the US open began. This attempt prove that he is coming back to shape. In 2011, he did finish 2nd and last year as 8th position. He has maintained a good record since the beginning of his career.

Luke Donald 20/1, did his best just some weeks ago after being familiar with the course than any of the players involved. He came 4th at the BMW championship. He used to be ranked and the World number one based on the interesting record kept. He came 2nd in 2010, and 3rd in 2011. In 2012, Luke Donald took up another amazing position by ending with a 3rd ranking.  He remains a Top contender for this prize

Another great spot is Bill Haas 40/1. He has recorded success in June this year at the AT&T National. Though, he has not done so well overall, we will keep an eye on him. He only appeared in 2011 and looking to make a big impact this week. He is able to play active golf from tee to green. His great strength gives him an advantage especially on a longer course. He is looking solid and trying to pick up another title this season.

 

The field is packed with competition and we are looking forward to seeing some spectacular golf in the upcoming days. Stay tuned as we will be covering the event through the weekend.
