The first of the final four events of the Fed Ex cup begin with The Barclays event held in Edison, N.J at Plainfield country club. 125 players will start this week with 100 progressing though to the 2nd event based on their points status come Sunday evening, all in the name of bagging that 10 million bonus put up by Fed Ex. Plainfield is a Donald Ross designed course and this event was held here as recently as 2011 where Dustin Johnson won with a -19 total. Caution there, Johnson did not take part in today's pro am due to illness. Right, I won't go into too much detail and get onto my two selections for this week's event; Tony Finau 80/1 - Big hitting American who has been simmering along well this year, the course should really suit his huge driving if he's finding fairway's and he can give himself plenty of birdie opportunities to compete here over the 4 day's. He's been flagged by many as a person who can go on and dominate events, that is possible but he will have to start converting consistency into big time wins. He's still young though and he's still improving. Starts the week In 39th position and could have a run towards the top 5 over the upcoming events. Solid each way chance. Justin Thomas 66/1 - has an all round steady game and has really found his feet this season, ranked 36th going into this week and 76th in the OWGR (Official world golf rankings) he is yet another 'young gun' that is showing his form and starting to show some good consistency. His best finish this season was a T4 at the Sanderson Farms and also a T4 at the Quicken Loans championship. He tends to be streaky and can post some low numbers...hopefully he can do it over 4 day's and get into the last event of the season in 4 week's time. Medium each way chance. I will be back in action tomorrow also after over a month and a half out with torn ligaments in my thumb. I hope my driver has kept it's manners All the best folks.
