Tour Championship odds 2023: Starting strokes make Scottie Scheffler a monstrous favorite at East Lake


Keyur Khamar

Whether you like the starting strokes format or not, there's no debating that Scottie Scheffler has earned every single one of them with the phenomenal season he's had.

With his runner-up finish at the BMW Championship, the World No. 1 now has 11 finishes of T-11 or better in his last 13 starts. Yet none of those resulted in victories, his last win coming at the Players Championship in March. He may finally get that seventh PGA Tour win this week at the Tour Championship, where he'll begin at 10 under. The two-stroke advantage to start has made him a monstrous +150 favorite at the DraftKings Sportsbook.

BMW winner Viktor Hovland, who will start the week at eight under, two back of Scheffler, is actually the third favorite at +450. Rory McIlroy is sandwiched in between Scheffler and Hovland at +330. He will start his Tour Championship at seven under. The Northern Irishman is gunning for his fourth Tour Championship title, which would give him one more than Tiger Woods, the only other player with three. 

Jon Rahm, who is at six under, is the only other player at single-digit odds (+750). There is a rather large odds jump after that, with Patrick Cantlay checking in next at 18-1. 

Below are the odds for all 30 players in the 2023 Tour Championship:
