The third of the Fed Ex cup play offs begins with the BMW Championship on Thursday and we’re in great form after picking Rory in the Deutsche at 12/1. This week it’s all change in the betting and Adam Scott could spearhead the field after a great final round on Monday. We also have some big outsiders who are great value in a smaller field than usual, all fighting for a place in the Tour Championship.

We head to Crooked Stick in Indiana and it’s proved in the past it’s a course for the bombers. Both Rory McIlroy and John Daly have won big championships here, and you have to hit 300 plus yards to get in the mix. DJ is consistently the longest driver and is clearly in great form this season. An awful 75 in the third round at the weekend preventing him from winning but he showed great character by recording a final round 66 in high winds and can take that form to Indiana.
The Aussie finally found form at The Deutsche and a top 4 finish will reward him with plenty of confidence. He’s another that hits the ball miles and will enjoy the course set up and Pete Dye designed lay out. I was maybe expecting him to be a little higher in the odds market but he’s still worth a bet as the form players come to fore in these end of season Fed Ex play offs.
Louis is yet to win on US soil but it won’t be long before he breaks that unwanted record. He played some lovely golf and fared quite well in the windy conditions on Monday considering he was one of the last groups out and had the worst of it. He’s under rated in terms of how far he hits off the tee and he showed in Boston he can mix it with the best.
Three top five finishes in his last 10 starts show a player on the verge of victory and it’s all the product of a return to the Butch Harmon stable and the confidence that appears to guarantee. A top 20 finish at Boston with a closing 67 was good enough to be in the reckoning for the Tour Championship in two weeks and he can cap his season with a big performance in the BMW this week.
The American is vying for rookie of the year and another top 20 will probably mean he takes the honors ahead of Grillo. The younster played three good rounds in Boston but the conditions got to him on Monday and he couldn’t match the three rounds in the 60’s that had put him in contention. The rookies have proven this season that they enjoy the pressure and it will be no different for Smylie. He needs a good showing to get to the final Fed Ex event and at huge odds he’s worth a couple of quid each way to shock the worlds best.
