As always, you should not focus only on the big hitters of the upcoming PGA tournament. Golfers with longer odds can pull the rug from under the favorites, and we have three sleepers for the 2019 edition of the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta lined up below. With only 30 players to tee off from Aug. 22 to 25, the competition is thinner than usual for these unanticipated contenders. Will one of the names listed here win it all? If they do, you could be looking at a series payday, assuming you bet accordingly. Let’s have a look.
Top 3 High Value Sleepers and Sleeper Picks and Predictions for the 2019 Tour Championship Golf Championship
Where: East Lake Golf Course, Atlanta, Georgia
When: August 22-25 2019
TV Broadcast: ESPN/CBS
Xander Schauffele (current odds)
Schauffele knows how it’s like to be on top of everybody else at East Lake. After all, he’s won the TOUR Championship in his first try and in his first year as a pro back in 2017. Two years later, Schauffele remains as competitive as ever and it seems that he likes the atmosphere at East Lake, where he also finished with a T7 last year. Schauffele has two wins on the season — at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions and at the Sentry Tournament of Champions — to go with five top 10s in 20 starts.
Webb Simpson (current odds)
It wasn’t that long ago when Simpson caught fire and finished with consecutive runner-up finishes at the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and at the Wyndham Championship. He’s cooled off a bit lately, with a T18 at the NORTHERN TRUST and a T24 at the BMW Championship, but before you ignore him, just consider the fact that he’s got a trio of top-3 finishes at East Lake.
Hideki Matsuyama (current odds)
Matsuyama was a man possessed in Medinah last week. By firing a 9-under-par 63 in the second round of the 2019 BMW Championship, the Japanese star managed to set a new course record. He ended up with a third-place finish, but most importantly, Matsuyama did enough to make the cut by a mile for the TOUR Championship. He kicked off last week at the 33rd place but is now 15th heading into the ultimate tournament of the FedExCup Playoffs.
