Jordan Spieth To Start The FedEx Cup Play Offs With Northern Trust Success

The PGA Tour's season-ending FedEx Cup play-offs begin in earnest on Thursday as the top-125 players on the points list will be teeing up at The Northern Trust and we are backing Jordan Spieth to star in New York...

The Head Of The Market

Formerly known as The Barclays, the tournament is known as The Northern Trust for sponsorship reasons this year and there is a new venue as Glen Oaks in Old Westbury, New York, hosts its first ever PGA Tour event.

The par-70 weighs in at 7,350 yards and has been likened to Augusta thanks to its long and tight nature, with former Masters winner, Spieth, a decent price to excel.

The 2015 Masters champion has obviously had his issues with the fifteenth hole at Augusta but he still boasts an excellent record in the major, twice finishing runner-up, and he is primed to add to his three titles for 2017.

Back-to-back wins at The Travelers and Open Championship have understandably been followed by a cooling off period with top-thirty finishes at Firestone and Quail Hollow but expect the 2015 FedEx Cup winner to get back into contention now the real business of the play-offs is underway.
Tip #1: Jordan Spieth (each way) @: 12/1 with Betfred.

Spieth is the pick of the leading fancies for us, although current FedEx Cup winner, Hideki Matsuyama (10/1), obviously has his merits after racking up six wins worldwide in the past ten months.

Dustin Johnson can be backed at 14/1 despite securing just one top-ten finish in his past eight starts, while Rory McIlroy (16/1) is bidding to improve on his current position of 44th in the FedEx Cup rankings. The in-form Rickie Fowler (14/1) has six top-ten finishes to show for his efforts this summer but does he win often enough to justify that price?

Rose To Bloom

We prefer to back the US Masters runner-up Justin Rose at 55/1 as he bids to add to his eight top-fifteen finishes for the year. The Englishman's form has dipped since he lost out to Sergio Garcia in a play-off at Augusta earlier this year but this week's par-70 looks a nice fit for him and we are happy to have an each-way punt.
Tip #2: Justin Rose (each way) @ 55/1 with Bet 365.

Johnson Is Hot

Finally, Zach Johnson is hitting a purple patch of form that could well carry him into Steve Stricker's Presidents Cup team. Johnson currently sits in 28th place in the President's Cup rankings but the former US Masters winner is playing his way into touch at the right time, with Johnson following up top-fifteen finishes at the John Deere Classic and The Open Championship with a runner-up effort at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

Firestone is another course that is comparable to Glen Oaks and Johnson can prosper here.
Tip #3: Zach Johnson (each way) @ 70/1 with Unibet.
