The last leg of the 2021 FedEx Cup playoffs, the Tour Championship, is underway and a winner is just around the corner. In just over a month, someone will be crowned the season champion, and the competition is fierce. 

So, who’s looking good for the win? It’s hard to pinpoint one golfer, but some are on fire and showing a good amount of determination as the end approaches. The FedEx Cup and a 5-year PGA Tour exemption are what everyone’s got their eyes on. 

Here are our thoughts on those leading the pack. 

Collin Morikawa 

Collin Morikawa is leading the points race at the time of writing and is coming in strong with odds of 7/1 on GolfOdds. Having only turned professional in 2019, Morikawa has taken the golfing world by storm in the past few years. 

The youngster who wowed the world by winning two of four in his debut isn’t afraid to experiment, changing irons and putting grip without batting an eyelid. 

Apart from his daring, laser-focus and big-hitting, Morikawa is well-liked by the crowds, partly due to his talent and exciting play and partly due to his nice-guy demeanor. 

If his current form continues, the 24-year old has an excellent chance of coming out on top. 

Jon Rahm 

Jon Rahm may be coming up fourth in the points list, but he’s currently a strong favorite to take the cup. GolfOdds has Rahm at 5/1 odds of winning. 

Rahm also has some amazing achievements behind his name, including a record-setting 60 weeks in the top spot on the World Amateur Golf Ranking and being the first Spanish golfer to win the US Open. 

The Spaniard is topping the rankings at the moment and looks like a formidable opponent. He’ll definitely be the one to beat. 

Dustin Johnson 

Dustin Johnson will be defending his 2020 FedEx Cup title this year. After his 2020 win, Johnson was named the PGA Tour Player of the Year. 

But he was plagued by bad luck and a bout with COVID-19 for the rest of the season, resulting in a three-month break and a struggle to regain his form. 

2021 has been a relatively quiet year for Johnson. In terms of FedEx Cup standings, he’s been within the top 20 all along, albeit with some fluctuation. He’ll be coming in strong to defend his title, though.

Jordan Spieth 

Spieth is hot on the heels of Collin Morikawa on the FedEx Cup points ranking at the time of writing, and is also considered one of the favorites with odds of 8/1. 

2019 and 2020 were tough years for Spieth, as he struggled to keep good form and stay at the top of the rankings. 2021 has been a year of better form, especially as Spieth prepares for the FedEx Cup. 

Not So Good 

Unfortunately, not everyone is showing promise for the 2021 FedEx Cup playoffs. We’re disappointed to see a few of the high hopes falling behind in the FedEx Cup rankings. 
  • Rickie Fowler, currently at number 124 after a rough year 
  • Sergio Garcia, coming in at 38 at the time of writing 
  • Webb Simpson, who’s dropped to 49 after going into the BMW Championship at number 3 
  • Tyrell Hatton, 7th place in 2020, currently in 64th 


As always, the 2021 FedEx Cup is set to be an exciting event. There are some excellent players jostling for the cup, and we can expect to see a fight to the very end.
