Twofer Tuesday: TOUR Championship

After a long super-season Twofer Tuesday drags its weary... bottom to East Lake for the TOUR Championship.

Defending champion Dustin Johnson

You know this stuff, right? Culmination of the PGA Tour season, winner gets the FedExCup trophy and $15mil, lots of bling and everybody gets one whole week off before the whole circus starts again. Dustin Johnson won the big prize last year and he's back, starting at -3 this year.

Likewise, you know my picks because I already said I'd stay with the same picks all the way through the Playoffs as long as they continued to make it to the next round. Just to remind you:

  • Pick #1 is Abraham Ancer. He's coming off a Top10 at the BMW this past week so he's back in form to make a run at the big prize this week. He'll start off at -4.
  • And Pick #2 is Xander Schauffele. Has he been continuing the gold medal celebration ever since Tokyo? Well, it would be hard to blame him... but this is the BIG prize in terms of money so he needs to get his butt in gear.  He starts the week at -2, quite a ways down the list, but he's won this event before and (technically) he shot a lower score than DJ last year. He was just too far back to win.

GC's live coverage starts Thursday at 1pm ET while PGA TOUR LIVE starts streaming at 11am ET. There's only 30 guys in the field after all, so extremely early morning hours aren't needed. But it seems to me that the biggest question is how many of the players have enough stamina left to hold it together for one last week, especially given the pressure.
