Tour Championship Odds: Who Is the Betting Favorite to Win the Historic $18 Million Prize?

We’ve made it to the finale of the 2022 PGA Tour season and the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and the top players delivered to set up a stacked leaderboard for the Tour Championship at the iconic East Lake Golf Club.

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler will begin the tournament two strokes ahead of the field at 10 under par. Patrick Cantlay, coming off his win at last weekend’s BMW Championship, is right behind Scheffler at 8 under. Recent first-time winner Will Zalatoris will start at 7 under, and East Lake king Xander Schauffele is at 6 under. Oh, and let’s not forget about Rory McIlroy (-4), Jon Rahm (-3), and Justin Thomas (-3) lurking in the shadows.

So, as we prepare for the Tour Championship, who is the betting favorite to win and where does everyone stand on the odds board?

Yeah, no surprises here.

Scheffler is the No. 1 player in the Official World Golf Ranking. He has the most wins of any player on the PGA Tour this season (four), and thanks to the current FedEx Cup point system, he’ll start the Tour Championship two strokes ahead of second place at 10 under par.

This is Scheffler’s FedEx Cup title to lose, and he’s the betting favorite at +250 ($100 nets $250) to win the TOUR Championship and the record $18 million prize that comes with it.

Right behind him is Cantlay at +430, while Schauffele (+800) is the only other player with odds shorter than 10/1. Check out the full starting scores and betting odds for the Tour Championship field below:
