Early Voting in for FedEx Cup Champion

Before anyone has teed off at East Lake Golf Club outside of Atlanta, I thought I'd share some EARLY poll results with you.

The question was: Who's taking home the $10 million FedEx Cup check this weekend?
Jason Day - 65%
Jordan Spieth - 19%
Rickie Fowler - 9%
Henrik Stenson - 2%
Someone Else - 5%

Of the "Someone Else," we know one person is pulling for Justin Rose. According to the PGA TOUR, for that to happen:

Rose must win the TOUR Championship, AND
• No. 1 must finish in a 3-way tie for 6th or worse
• No. 2 must finish T4 or worse
• No. 3 must finish T3 or worse
• No. 4 must finish in a 3-way tie for second or worse
• No. 5 must finish T2 or worse

Check out all these scenarios HERE. Very cool!

That same website gives these scenarios for Day taking home the top prize:

• If he wins the TOUR Championship, he wins the FedExCup
• Has a reasonable chance of winning with a top-five finish
• Can finish as low as 29th and still have a mathematical chance of winning

That's not a bad bet!
