Simpson is beginning six shots back from this pioneer Justin Thomas, but he’s three top-fives at East Lake and is swinging a very hot golf club of late. Even the 34-year-old is winless in 2019 however finished the regular season with successive solo moments at the WGC in Memphis along with the Wyndham Championship.
Simpson has a habit of showing up in large events, along with the Tour Championship certainly qualifies in this regard. The Wake Forest product ranks 13th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained on putting and 11th in strokes obtained on approach, which will bode well for his chances to build off a T-7 at a year’s Tour Championship. Using a scoring average of 69.3 (third on the tour), I’m comfortable backing him in +2200.
Schauffele has his work cut out for him because he’ll be starting six shots off the lead, but that I do not think that’s enough to dissuade the American from posting some outstanding numbers at East Lake. Schauffele, the 2017 Tour Championship winner, carded rounds of 69-66-65-68 to border Thomas by one stroke to cap off a Rookie of the Year season.
Schauffele notched a T-7 here last season and is a combined 17-under in 144 holes at this particular golf course, therefore considering you’ll get him in his own pre-tournament +2800 price, the opportunity to leap on the X-Man’s odds is currently.
Finau comes with an outside probability of winning the FedExCup thanks to a fourth-place finish at the BMW Championship last week and has collected four consecutive top-30s ahead of this playoff finale. This is Finau’s third trip to Atlanta, going T-7 at the venue at 2017 and T-15 in 2018.
Finau is winless this year but has been at the mix on many occasions throughout the effort and is expected for a breakout performance. It is going to be difficult for him to return from his -3 starting spot, but when he can record some solid scores on the first couple of days, he needs to have a chance to compete on the weekend.
