Five golfers who could catch Henrik Stenson at Tour Championship
Henrik Stenson has a monster lead at the Tour Championship but he opened the door a little bit at the end of his round on Saturday.
The Tour Championship is over -- Henrik Stenson is 11 under and will inevitably win the touranament and the $10 million prize for winning the FedEx Cup.
But just for a minute let's pretend like Stenson doesn't have this thing all wrapped up with his four-shot lead and talk about a few golfers who could feasibly catch Stenson.
He did bogey three of his last five holes on Saturday so I guess anything could happen.
[looks at Stenson's 1-4 odds to win the tournament, laughs, continues writing].
Anyway, here are your five guys:
1. Dustin Johnson (four shots back) -- As Justin Ray of ESPN pointed out on Saturday, there have been seven winners from four or more shots back going to the final round of a tournament this season.
So Johnson recovering and overtaking Stenson is totally feasible. The problem for Johnson is that he won't win the FedEx Cup unless Stenson finishes in a tie for sixth (or worse) among a host of other things happening. But it would be kind of cool if Johnson bookended the 2013 season with wins.
2. Steve Stricker (six shots back) -- He's certainly got the game to make up six shots but he'll have to repeat something similar to his first-round 66. The reality is that he'll actually probably need a 64 or better to have a shot at the end.
3. Jordan Spieth (seven shots back) -- If you were asking me to pick two guys on Tour with the best chance to shoot something like a 61 or 62 on a Sunday to win a tournament, this guy and the next guy on the list would be in my top 10 pretty easily. What a story it would be if Spieth could somehow cap his rookie year with this tournament.
4. Webb Simpson (nine shots back) -- Simpson's 64 at the PGA Championship is proof that he has it in him. With eight golfers between him and Stenson it will take a minor miracle for him to hoist the trophy.
5. Tiger Woods (14 shots back) -- If Tiger goes out early and shoots a 57 and...haha, no, Tiger Woods will not be catching Henrik Stenson on Sunday.
