Golf Rankings for TOUR Championship
Rory McIlroy [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #1
McIlroy has only played East Lake once, a T10 from 2012. After a disappointing T22 at The Barclays to begin the FedEx Cup Playoffs, Rory has finished T5 at TPC Boston and T8 last week at the BMW.
Adam Scott [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #3
Dating back to 2004, Scott has played East Lake every year since 2004, claiming victory in 2006. Last year, Scott was in sole position of second place after two rounds prior to stumbling in the third, eventually finishing T14.
Jim Furyk [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #7
Furyk is as dependable as they come. He's finished eighth or better in five of his last seven appearances this season and is coming off a T4 at the BMW. Furyk won the 2010 event at East Lake and has finished seventh or better five times over the last seven years.
Rickie Fowler [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #10
Fowler's lone appearance at East Lake was a T23 back in 2012. He comes into this week's tournament owning six finishes inside the top 10 over his last seven starts, highlighted by three top-three finishes in majors.
Sergio Garcia [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #6
After losing the 2008 tournament at East Lake in a playoff, Garcia didn't return to the site until a T15 in 2012 and last year's T9.
Billy Horschel [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #14
Horschel finished T7 in last year's East Lake debut. More importantly, he's suddenly caught fire with a share of second at TPC Boston and last week's victory at the BMW. Horschel had been experiencing an otherwise pedestrian season until this recent outburst.
Jordan Spieth [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #9
Spieth earned a share of second in last year's East Lake debut and is coming off a T8 at the BMW, his first top-20 since mid-July.
Bubba Watson [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #4
Since winning the Masters, Watson had only managed one top-15 in 10 starts until last week's runner-up performance at the BMW. It's great timing for Bubba, who placed a career-best T5 last year at East Lake.
Justin Rose [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #5
Rose was the runner-up at East Lake in 2012 and finished solo sixth a year ago. He'll need to overcome three consecutive finishes outside of the top 20 since a T4 at Firestone over a month ago.
Bill Haas [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #41
Haas won this event in 2011 and was working a top-10 last year until going 4-over on Sunday. He's finished 16th or better in the three previous FedEx Cup Playoff tournaments.
Martin Kaymer [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #12
Kaymer is playing East Lake for the first time in his career. Since missing the cut at the PGA and The Barclays, he's finished T7 at TPC Boston and T16 last week at the BMW.
Jason Day [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #8
Just when Day was looking healthy and performing well, a back injury forces him to withdraw from the BMW. He's played East Lake three times since 2010 with an average finish of 12.3.
