Im Sung-jae (50/1 – Tour Championship outright with starting strokes) flew up the FedExCup standings last week and he’s hoping to build on that fine performance at the Tour Championship in Atlanta, Georgia.
The 23-year-old has already made history by becoming the first Korean to earn a place in the Tour Championship for three consecutive years.
Im finished 11th last season and he was named ‘Rookie of the Year’ in 2019 when he was 19th in the final standings.
After finishing third at the BMW Championship in Maryland last week, Im climbed from 25th up to 12th, the biggest move among the 30 competitors at the competition.
Im said: “I want to do my best. I want to have better scores than last year and the year before. The Tour Championship is full of world-class players but I will make sure I do my best by competing well with them.”
Patrick Reed (40/1 – Tour Championship outright without starting strokes) has confirmed he will be back in the field for this week’s event after recovering from pneumonia.
Reed missed the two play-off events at the Nothern Trust and BMW Championship but he’s back just in time to make a push for one of Steve Stricker’s wildcard Ryder Cup picks.
