After taking a week off to rest some tired legs and catch up on sleep, Jason Day picked up right where he left off and won the BMW Championship in wire to wire fashion. It was an unbelievable performance that left Day at -22 after 72 holes. The way he has been playing he was probably bummed to shoot a pair of 69s on the weekend. This week is the final stop of the 2014-2015 PGA Tour, the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club.
East Lake is a par 70 course that will be played at about 7,300 yards. The course has been a very fair and firm test with winning scores of -11, -13 and -10 the last three years. It’s typically not a course where someone goes really low and makes a giant move up the leaderboard. Posting four rounds between 67 and 71 could be enough to win. My statistical analysis is below…
Underrated: Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose
Overrated: Paul Casey, Robert Streb
I’m not sure why the stats continue to hate on Rickie Fowler. He’s hot right now and he needs to be a top 10 player. Justin Rose has been phenomenal at East Lake so he’s a top 10 play as well. My personal top 10 is below:
