Regular season is gone, The Barclays Golf Odds are Available

barclaysThe Barclay Golf Odds: The regular season is done. The top 125 players are set for the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. Now it's a five-week, four-event sprint to see who'll claim season-long bragging rights (and pocket a cool $10 million bonus in the process). It doesn't matter how you got in, whether you displayed consistency all year or snuck in last week. Although players do not start the Playoffs even in points, they do start out even in opportunity. Every player has a legitimate chance to win the FedExCup.

Plainfield Country Club, dubbed the “Green Monster,” doesn't have any 37-foot-high walls like the same-named barrier in left field at Fenway Park in Boston, but the Donald Ross design in Edison, New Jersey is the launching pad for this year's edition of the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. This will be two weeks in a row that the course was designed by Ross.

Designed in 1916, this week's field will be grappling with Gil Hanse's renovation in 1999. All 122 bunkers were reshaped, fairways were resized (and moved, if necessary) and a significant number of trees were removed, all with the intent of restoring Ross' vision. Tucked into a neighborhood, the 6,964-yard par 71 embodies the premiums of shot-making and distance control.

Turtleback greens have taken on considerable moisture in recent days, but the entire track allows for above-average drainage. Not only should that allow the putting surfaces to run at the planned 11.5 on the Stimpmeter, but the fairways should also roll freely. Yet, because of the several inches of rain that have fallen, the rough could get gnarly, thus inflating the value of finding the short grass.

Dry conditions will remain through Wednesday. The next threat of rain emerges just in time for the opening round on Thursday, but storms could be hit and miss. Friday is expected to be beautiful before yet another blast of bad weather encroaches on the weekend when the wind could be serious challenge. Daytime highs will reach the mid-80s.

Steve Stricker

They call Stricker, Mr. September and he has played well all year –it seems like every week he is in the hunt. He arrives at the final event in August with 11 consecutive top 20s, including a pair of victories. He leads the PGA TOUR in Strokes Gained - Putting, scrambling, birdie average, actual scoring average and par-4 scoring.

When you putt as well as he does, its no wonder why he has a chance every time he tees it up, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him win The Barclays Golf Odds.

Luke Donald

He has ten top 10s this year, including in his last two starts (T2, WGC-Bridgestone; T8, PGA Championship). He leads the PGA TOUR in adjusted scoring and ranks 51st in fairways hit, 42nd in greens and second in strokes gained-putting. There is a reason why Cool Hand Luke is the best player on the planet right now.
