Points have been accumulated along the year by these professionals and count towards their point total going forward to the end. Only the top 125 players in the regular season advance to The Barclays in New York with the top 100 advancing to the Deutsche Bank Championships in Boston, Massachusetts the following week.
The third week is for the 70 players with the most points playing in Chicago, Illinois at the BMW Championship before the final 30 top players move on. The 30 remaining players are seeded as a reset takes place for the TOUR Championship where the FedExCup champion is decided.
The rankings going into the final regular season PGA Tour event, the Wyndham Championship and remarks will be followed by the players on the bottom of the 125 player bubble.
Tiger Woods 3,059 points
The leader by no surprise except by people who listen to the press is easily Tiger Woods, and he is not even playing this week. I guess he doesn’t need those points.
Matt Kuchar 2,293 points
Mister steady is the man to watch when betting FedExCup players to win it all, because he is always there and ready for another golfer to slip or himself to catch fire.
Brandt Snedeker 2,218 points
The defending FedExCup Champion is not taking a week off like many of the top point holders but pressing it up to try and take the consecutive titles instead of trying not to lose it. For FedExCup Playoffs gambling advice, I would recommend staying on Brandt Snedeker every week no matter what the other golf betting handicappers say.
Phil Mickelson 2,166 points
Of course Phil Mickelson is taking off this week to rest again which is part of the reason I don’t see him bringing the big prize home. Even if he plays good at the Barclays, I don’t believe it will be long lived with a worn out Mickey ready to call it a year. I just don’t see him doing much in the FedExCup Playoffs this year as he has already called it.
Billy Horschel 1,487 points
Horschel has been in 22 events this year which is more than most players, and he is obviously a hungry young man that can’t get enough of this great sport and winning. I just think he may find the pressure a bit too much to keep up a torrid pace in these elitist events.
Bill Haas 1,457 points
This winner of the FedExCup Championship just 2 years ago is not taking any chances, and many have him winning or a favorite by golf odds this week in the Wyndham Championship. He knows what he needs to do to win and can’t be counted out of a possible winner with his record this year.
Justin Rose 1,447 points
I would recommend reading my Race to Dubai article for more relative and positive information on Justin Rose, because he will NEVER be a factor in the FedExCup Playoffs of 2013. He is happy. He got his Major, so he can now sleep.
Henrik Stenson 1,426 points
The top ranked PGA Tour player of the year that does not have a win yet this year is Henrik Stenson, and there can’t be anybody in the world playing as well as he is right now. For FedExCup Playoffs betting, you should stick with Stenson just as you should with Snedeker.
Keegan Bradley 1,416 points
Too many twitches, too weird a season and too short an attention span like me.
Adam Scott 1,347 points
I wouldn’t expect him to play horribly, but this is an American kind of thing and I think Adam Scott will do much better on the other side of the water in the Race to Dubai.
The PGA Tour regular season may be toast pretty much, but the FedExCup Playoffs gambling is just beginning and you can bet on PGA Golf odds thru September.
