PGA TOUR Championship

With no event this week in Europe, attention is focused on the US and the final FedEx tournament. Tiger Woods will be all out to secure the Playoff title and its still very hard seeing him not winning here. Accuracy off the tee could be his downfall but I doubt it. I would like to have a punt on Padraig Harrington who is chasing his 6th top 10 in a row but his odds are a little skinny despite the field being reduced to just 30. Zach Johnson has posted 6 scores in the 60s in his last 8 rounds at East Lake so with odds of 12/1 without Tiger he is tempting, he is 20/1 with Tiger in the market. Hunter Mahan is a player who could click this week and he too has shown good form here and Dustin Johnson's length off the tee may see him make the frame, having secured two top 15 finishes in three of the playoffs so far. He is 45s with Tiger but the option of 25s w/out Tiger is taken. With my bad run ended last week with a place collect on Oosthuizen, perhaps the switch to the US can result in a much needed win.
