THERE might be a little more sting on Bubba Watson’s shots this week, with the world number seven having (so far) been left off the USA’s Ryder Cup squad. Watson’s reported unpopularity on the Tour appears to have bitten him on the backside, so he’ll be out to make himself impossible not to pick with a strong performance at East L ake. Rankings aside, Watson’s case for inclusion is hardly compelling, considering his tie for eighth at the Olympic golf tournament is his lone top 10 result since early March. TIME will tell whether Jason Day’s back comes good in time for him to not only tee off on Thursday, but be competitive enough to put himself in the frame to win. History says that Day’s injuries tend to continue to rear their heads until he has an extended break, and anyone who’s experienced back complaints knows there are few things worse. Fingers crossed he comes good quickly. DON’T be surprised if things look a little different as the 30 players make their way down the homeward stretch at East Lake this year. In a bid to spice things up, the tournament organisers have switched the nines, meaning the event will finish with a long par 5, rather than a par 3. It’s aimed at creating some risk- reward decisions and opportunities if the leaderboard is tight on the final day, which can only be a good thing. WITH a victory at the Tour Championship enough for any of the boys near the top to win the FedEx Cup, it’s a “win it or bin it” scenario for the number one-ranked player Dustin Johnson. But the odds aren’t exactly in his favour. Only two players have ever won the Cup after starting the final event on top – Tiger Woods in 2007 and 2009, and Vijay Singh in 2008. POINT TO PROVE DAY AT A TIME DIFFERENT ENDING JOHNSON UP AGAINST IT
