Odds are out for the final round of the Tour Championship and seven players are listed as having odds plus "the field."

Let's eschew "the field" for now and look at what kind of chances each golfer has to win the FedEx Cup if they win the Tour Championship (remember FedEx Cup scores reset before the Tour Championship).

Let's jump in.

1. Henrik Stenson (11 under)

Odds to win Tour Championship: 1-4

To win FedEx Cup... Stenson just needs to win Tour Championship.

2. Dustin Johnson (7 under)

Odds to win Tour Championship: 5-1

To win FedEx Cup... Johnson needs to win Tour Championship and for Tiger Woods to finish 29th or worse (currently T26), Stenson to finish in a three-way tie for sixth or worse (currently in first), Adam Scott to finish T4 or worse (currently T10), Zach Johnson to finish T3 or worse (currently T4), Matt Kuchar to finish in a three-way tie for second or worse (currently 25th), and Steve Stricker to finish T2 or worse (currently third).

3. Steve Stricker (5 under)

Odds to win Tour Championship: 20-1

To win FedEx Cup... Stricker needs to win Tour Championship and for Tiger Woods to finish T2 or worse (currently T26).

4. Justin Rose (4 under)

Odds to win Tour Championship: 30-1

To win FedEx Cup... Rose needs to win Tour Championship and for Tiger Woods to finish in a three-way tie for third or worse (currently T26), Stenson to finish third or worse (currently in first), Scott to finish T2 or worse (currently T10), and Zach Johnson to finish secod or worse (currently T4).

5. Zach Johnson (4 under)

Odds to win Tour Championship: 30-1

To win FedEx Cup... Johnson just needs to win Tour Championship.

6. Jordan Spieth (4 under)

Odds to win Tour Championship: 40-1

To win FedEx Cup... Spieth needs to win Tour Championship and for Tiger Woods to finish T7or worse (currently T26), Stenson to finish T4 or worse (currently in first), Adam Scott to finish T3 or worse (currently T10), Zach Johnson to finish in a three-way tie for third or worse (currently T4), Matt Kuchar to finish T2 or worse (currently 25th).

7. Billy Horschel (4 under)

Odds to win Tour Championship: 60-1

To win FedEx Cup... Horschel needs to win Tour Championship and for Tiger Woods to finish in a three-way tie for 13th or worse (currently T26), Stenson to finish T5 or worse (currently in first), Adam Scott to finish in a three-way tie for third or worse (currently T10), Zach Johnson to finish T3 or worse (currently T4), Matt Kuchar to finish in a three-way tie for second or worse (currently 25th), and Steve Stricker to finish T2 or worse (currently in third).

So as you can see, it's a bit complicated.

I don't think Stenson is finishing any worse than third so I think the only golfers with a real shot at the FedEx Cup are Stenson, Stricker, Rose, and Zach Johnson.

And really, I don't think Stenson is going to lose this tournament or the FedEx Cup title.
