How Tiger Woods can win the FedEx Cup this week...

 

Tiger Woods needs many different scenarios to go his way at this week's PGA Tour season-ending, 30-man Tour Championship in order to win his third career FedEx Cup on Sunday - but it is possible. 


 

In fact everyone teeing up at East Lake can win it, even Patton Kizzire looking on from 30th position. 

Woods, who lies 20th in the FedEx Cup standings, must first do one thing if he's to win the FedEx Cup and that is to WIN this week's Tour Championship. He must then hope for some dominos to fall in order to pick up his first FedEx Cup since 2009. 

Coupled with a Woods win, the 14-time major champ also needs current FedEx Cup leader Bryson DeChambeau to finish T15 or worse, Justin Rose to finish in a three-way tie for 5th or worse, Tony Finau to finish T3 or worse, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas to be in a three-way tie for 2nd or worse and, lastly, Keegan Bradley to finish T2 or worse.

Is it possible? Sure. Likely? Maybe not. But at this time last year, few would have bet that Woods would make it this far anyway.

If any of the top five players - DeChambeau, Rose, Finau, Johnson or Thomas - wins the Tour Championship then they will be crowned FedEx Cup champion no matter what happens.
