Fade Koepka winning the 2019 PGA Tour FedEx Cup
It’s dangerous to dismiss Koepka as a bona fide candidate to win the FedEx Cup.
He’s like Rodney Dangerfield – he gets no respect despite racking up three majors in the last two years.
Since Brooks Koepka wasn't too happy with a recent ESPN list, here's some suggested alternative reading. https://t.co/6mk4DQS3VB

The value simply isn’t there for a guy who only, rightfully so, mostly seems interested in destroying major championships and then treats the other tournaments like a walk in the park.
He has only two non-major titles to his credit, with nothing better than a ninth place showing in the FedEx Cup (this last year).
Tiger Woods Poised to make a run at 3rd FedEx Cup Title
Tiger Woods was just one missed Justin Rose putt away from winning the latest FedEx Cup, after securing his 80th title at the Tour Championship in remarkable fashion – silencing his harshest critics who said he’d never win again.
He did it.

But does this mean he’ll win his third FedEx Cup, and first since 2009?
Why the heck not? He nearly did it during a season of great uncertainty. So if he can stay healthy, Tiger at +1600 to win it all has tremendous value.
Tiger is back! 🐯

Keep in mind the playoffs in 2019 will feature one less event (down from four events), so he won’t be as physically taxed as he was this year.

Value Picks to win 2019 PGA Tour FedEx Cup
- Rory McIlroy (+1600): He’s committed to playing stateside more than ever this year and the Ulsterman has two FedEx Cup titles already, so he knows how to get it done. Nearly inconceivable he’d have a third straight “down” year on tour.
- Jon Rahm (+2500): Hugely bullish on the insanely talented Spaniard to take that next step to golfs elite this season. Won five times in last two years between the States and Europe. His two PGA Tour wins have come on the west coast early in the season so he can ride early momentum throughout the year.
- Jason Day (+2800): Criminal that Day’s best FedEx Cup finish is third in 2015. Won twice last season and is refocused on becoming the games best again. Great value for a player capable of sustained stretches of pure dominance.
