Betting Odds To Win the 2010 Tour Championship Sept 20

Heading into the Tour Championship, the odds to win are substantially unchanged from what they were a week ago. Mickelson is favored for a win, with Stricker, Kuchar, Dustin Johnson, Casey and Furyk following. I’m convinced it’ll be either Kuchar or Johnson, since Phil really has not shown championship form in some months.  A logical argument also can be made that Paul Casey is the best golfer on the planet at this moment, and thus should be favored in this event.

What a great irony it would be for Casey to win the Tour Championship and walk home ten million dollars richer after having been left off the European Ryder Cup Team.

Matt Kuchar,, on the other hand, is my personal favorite for the event. I’ve thought for some time now that he has all the makings of a superstar. He’s got the skill—and the charisma—to be the new face of the PGA Tour. If only he … and others … were to work as hard as Phil at winning over crowds.

I’m impressed that Dustin Johnson still has his game intact after two soul crushing losses at Majors this year. A lesser mind would be destroyed. But Johnson seems somehow made of different stuff. No one should surprised if Johnson would pull out a Tour Championship. Even ten Tour Championships wouldn’t add up to one Major (to the chagrin, I am sure, of the Tour), but it wouldn’t be a consolation prize.

Stricker, Furyk, Goosen and Els are others you can’t count out, but would not be nearly as interesting. And interesting is what the Tour needs right now.
