BEST BET


Jon Rahm 

72 Hole Lowest Score (7.50)

Jon Rahm may be start four shots back from Patrick Cantlay this week but the Spaniard has been the best player on Tour this year. He can win it all but his best value play is winning the 72-hole low score market.

Starting four shots back is probably an advantage in going low. It will ensure Rahm will need to be aggressive and there are few players who can go lower than Rahm. He ranks 2nd on Tour this year in Birdie or Better.

The key to success at East Lake comes in ball striking. It is hard to find a better ball striker in the world than Rahm. He leads the Tour in Ball Striking while he ranks 2nd in GIR and 2nd in Strokes Gained: Off The Tee.

Rahm has played East Lake four times and has finished Top 13 on each occasion, including two Top 7s. He has finished Top 9 at his last four starts this year.

Rahm is a tremendous bet to shoot the lowest score at the Tour Championship.

NEXT BEST


Sungjae Im

Top 5 (7.00)

Few players enjoy Donald Ross courses as much as South Korean Sungjae Im. That puts him in good stead to perform well this week. Im has finished Top 25 at the last two Wyndhams and finished T8 at the Rocket Mortgage this year. In his two starts here, he has finished Top 15 in each. His form has also come good of late with four Top 24 finishes in his last five starts, including a 3rd last week. Sungjae ranks 10th in Ball Striking and 15th in Strokes Gained: Off The Tee so his game will suit.

VALUE BET


Scottie Scheffler

72 Hole Lowest Score (19.00)

Scottie Scheffler remarkably still hasn’t won on the PGA Tour and he is unlikely to change that this week starting nine strokes back of Cantlay. He is an excellent chance though of shooting the lowest score over 72 holes this week though. Scheffler debuted here and enjoyed a tremendous tournament. He finished with rounds of 66-66-65 and was one of just two players to finish with a 268 or lower.

Scheffler ranks fifth on Tour in Birdie or Better, 15th in Ball Striking and 15th in Par 4 Scoring. He is going to have a big tournament.

Verdict

Jon Rahm is out best best for the lowest 72-hole score in this tournament.
