Jason Day romped into number 1 on the FedExCup standings with a seriously impressive win at The Barclays last weekend. The Australian now has the $10m in his grasp given the form he is in. Can he handle his nerve and consolidate his position this week? He will certainly try as the tour moves into the 2nd week of playoffs, this time hosted by TPC Boston, which plays 7242 yards long and is a par 71. A course that is famous for its chocolate drop mounds and grass bunkers. Rory Mcilory is back in the field after missing out at Plainfield Country Club last week. Mcilroy went back to number 1 in the world without even swinging a club as Jordan Speith missed the cut. The first time Speith has missed a cut since The Players Championship in May. Expect big things from those two this week. Sergio Garcia looks set to miss out again due to personal reasons, as he has not confirmed his place yet at TPC Boston. That leaves 99 players to fight it out over the $8,250,000 and 2000 FedExCup points. It promises to be another humdinger. Will Day ride off into the sunset or will some one towards the back of the bus stake a claim for the money and throw the cat among the pigeons?
Jason Day (+900 BetOnline.ag)
How can you not fancy Jason Day this weekend? The Australian has won 3 of his last 4 starts and is in the form of his life. Golf is very much a momentum sport and when you’ve got it with you there is always room to win again. Day prides himself on his mental strength, so you can bet he will reset the mind and try and win again. His biggest asset as the moment is his putter, its absolutely red hot and he looks like he is going to sink everything. Expect Day to be up there from Friday until late Monday.
Henrik Stenson (+2000 BetOnline.ag)
The big Swede has found his form again and has now finished in the top 6 in three of his last five starts. Stenson put on a dominant show last week at The Barclays and was particularly impressive off the tee matching Bubba Watsons drives with his 3 wood. Henrik Stenson also knows how to win the FedExCup having already won it in 2013. Not shy of form, talent or experience means you can bet Stenson will be there or thereabouts come Monday.
Ryan Palmer (+6600 BetOnline.ag)
The Texan has been through a tough couple of weeks, losing his father in a car accident two weeks ago. Despite this he has found courage inside the ropes and is playing great golf. Truly astounding and very impressive. Palmer finished 6th last week at The Barclays and a tied 16th last year at the Deutsche Bank Championship. He’s done well at the course before and seems to be playing in memory of his father. It would be one of the better sports stories of the year if this talented Texan can win this weekend, and who knows, maybe make a charge at the FedExCup.
