Generally sports fans have their favorite teams or players. Therefore, when sports bettors place a sports bet, it's a common thing to see that sports wager go on their favorite team or player.
In team sports like baseball or football it's easier to justify bets being placed on favorite teams like the Yankees or the Patriots because they play as a unit, and no single person is solely responsible for the outcome of the game based on their own individual performance.
However, in a sport like golf, betting on your favorite golfers can be a very costly endeavor. Unlike team sports, in golf the outcome is entirely based on individual performance and the golfer is the one making the swings, even his caddie says something different the player is the one who makes the final decision.
The TOUR Championship has been around since 1987 and starting in 1997, the Championship was held in different places, either at Champions Golf Club in Houston, Texas, or at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia. East Lake Club became the golf tournaments permanent residence in 2004.
