PGA Tour Championship: Take Your Pick!

There could be some fireworks this weekend in Atlanta as the PGA Tour Championship wraps up the 2009 season. Unlike last year’s tourney that awarded Vijay Singh the trophy with players still on the course, any of the 30 players can still theoretically win it all.

FEDEX Cup Standings - Top TenOf course the smart money is on Tiger Woods, but while he’s been dominant in several of his wins this year, even his strongest supporters will have to admit he just hasn’t been as consistent as he used to be. Still, no golfer performs better under this kind of pressure and it’s simply too tough to pick against him.

That said, there are still plenty of golfers I’ll be pullin’ for this week. Check out my list, then add your own comments below!

Padraig Harrington: After putting together a string of big-time victories in ’07 and ’08 before losing his way and rebuilding his swing, 2009 was supposed to be the year of Paddy’s comeback. He made it onto the leaderboard at more than a few tourneys, but never really pulled it all together. I don’t know that Harrington has fully recovered from losing the Bridgestone Invitational, Tiger’s Miracle Shot, and his own triple bogey made for a complete collapse.

Phil Mickelson: It’s been a rough year for Lefty both on and off the course, what with both his wife and mother battling cancer. It says a lot about him and his family that he’s still in the hunt, and he’s gotta be a sentamental favorite for at least a few of my Rock Heads.

Heath Slocum: Not too many people had heard of him before he won the first FedEx Cup event a few weeks back. And to tell you the truth, this Caveman still doesn’t know what to think of him! So I’ll be watchin’ for him this week and hope to get a better feel for what kind of game he’s playin’.

Y.E. Yang: My new favorite underdog for this year after his improbable win over Tiger at the PGA Championship. He’s a prime example of why you can never say never and just gotta watch all the action this week from East Lake!

Alright Rock Heads, who else should I be watchin’ for at the Tour Championship?

    Jim Furyk, he seems to always be near the top, and his game has been rock solid. Go Jimmie

    I’m with John. Jim Furyk will continue to be the steady guy that wins the race.

    Tiger got $40 million before he teed it up in his first PGA tournament. The Fed Ex Cup should be a fitting tribute to someone like Steve who lost his exemption, and fought his way back.

    NOTE: The Fed Ex Cup should be decided by a “Final Foursome”…Top four in the standings, 18 holes, winner take all.

    Jim Furyk is my choice, he’s zeroing in and seem’s to be peaking at the right time to take this huge event.

    Wet, cold and windy in Atlanta this weekend. Perhaps a European, or a Texan. So I’ll pick PH with his Wilson Staff Equipment.
