TOUR Championship tips

A field of 29 head to East Lake for the season-ending TOUR Championship and one of them is about to earn something in the region of $40,000 per shot. That's because whoever ends the week at the top of the FedEx Cup standings will receive a $10m bonus and history suggests that man will also land over $1.4m for winning the tournament itself - a point to note if you bet with any of the firms offering FedEx Cup prices.
