Round 4 Recap — Monday

Dustin Johnson cruises to TOUR Championship win

For a moment, it looked like Xander Schauffele ($8,900; 111 DKFP) was going to push Johnson ($15,200; 107 DKFP) for the lead, but DJ ended up winning by three strokes and held somewhat of cushion all day. He never led by less than two strokes today and was up by as many as five strokes earlier in the day. Johnson battled a bit of adversity by making back-to-back bogies on the front-nine, but didn’t give back a stroke for the rest of his round. He goes home with a cool $15 million check for winning the championship. — Greg Ehrenberg

Xander Schauffele finishes in tie for second after 66 on Monday

Schauffele ($8,900; 111 DKFP) finished as the high-scorer for DraftKings DFS purposes at the TOUR Championship even though Dustin Johnson ($15,200; 107 DKFP) took first place at -21. Schauffele fired a four-under 66 on Monday which put him at -18 for the week, good for a share of second place with Justin Thomas ($11,900; 101 DKFP). He finished Monday’s final round with 1.418 strokes gained in putting and hitting 72.22% of greens in regulation. Over his four rounds, he poured in 21 birdies and bogeyed just four times, adding a double in the first round. — Kenny Ducey



Round 3 Recap — Sunday

Dustin Johnson opens five-shot lead after third round of the TOUR Championship

Johnson ($15,200; 90 DKFP) started with the lead at the beginning of the tournament and is now five shots clear of the field after firing a 6-under-par in Round 3 on Sunday. He dropped seven birdies to go with a single bogey and enters Monday’s final round at 19-under, which gives him a nice cushion over Xander Shauffele ($8,900; 85.5 DKFP) and Justin Thomas ($11,900; 77.5 DKFP), who are tied for second. As you would expect in the TOUR Championship, the rest of the leaderboard is also stacked with big names. Jon Rahm ($12,700; DKFP) and the newest major winner, Collin Morikawa ($10,400; 74 DKFP) round out the top five headed to the finish of the season finale. — Zach Thompson


Daniel Berger surges with low round on Sunday at the TOUR Championship

Berger ($9,100; 69 DKFP) closed Sunday’s round with his second run of three straight birdies and surged from 17th all the way up to T6 entering Monday’s final round. He had seven birdies and just one bogey while matching leader Dustin Johnson ($15,200; 90 DKFP) for the low round of the day. Rookie Scottie Scheffler ($7,900; 64 DKFP) also had a strong round with a 4-under-par to move up to solo-eighth while MacKenzie Hughes ($5,200; 55 DKFP) and Tony Finau ($8,200; 59.5 DKFP) also climbed the leaderboard with 4-under performances on Sunday, but they both have a ways to go since they’re still at 20 and T12, respectively. — Zach Thompson



Round 2 Recap — Saturday

Sungjae Im goes low on Saturday, trails Dustin Johnson by one stroke at Tour Championship

Im ($7,300) had the best round on the golf course on Saturday. He fired a six-under-par 64, which moved him into second place heading into the third round of the Tour Championship. He sits at 12-under-par overall, which trails leader Dustin Johnson ($15,200) by just one stroke. Im was one of the lowest-owned golfers in this 30-man field at approximately 12.5%, and he entered the contest six shots behind Johnson. Johnson was the leader before the tournament started at 10-under-par, and he has led after the first two days as well. He is the current betting favorite at +160 on DraftKings Sportsbook, while Im owns the fifth-shortest odds at +900. — Matt LaMarca


Jon Rahm disappoints Saturday, trails by four strokes at the Tour Championship

Rahm ($12,700) entered the second round of the Tour Championship tied for the lead, but he now trails by four strokes following a disappointing round on Saturday. He shot a four-over-par 74, which was the second-worst round out of the entire 30-man field. He now sits in a three-way tie for fifth place. Rahm had the sixth-highest average ownership in DraftKings tournaments this week at approximately 28.5%, so plenty of people will be hoping he can improve in Round 3. Dustin Johnson ($15,200) currently leads the field at 13-under-par, while Sungjae Im ($7,300), Xander Schauffele ($8,900), and Justin Thomas ($11,900) round out the top four on the leaderboard. — Matt LaMarca



Round 1 Recap — Friday

Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm tied for lead after first round of the TOUR Championship

Johnson ($15,200) and Rahm ($12,700) are tied for the lead heading into the second round of the TOUR Championship. This tournament has an interesting format, so Johnson entered the tournament at 10-under-par thanks to his first place FedEx Cup standing, while Rahm entered at eight-under-par. With that in mind, Johnson technically shot three-under-par on Friday and Rahm was slightly better at five-under-par. Rory McIlroy ($9,700) and Abraham Ancer ($6,100) tied for the best round on the course at six-under-par and they will enter Saturday in fourth and fifth place, respectively. Johnson and Rahm are both listed at +188 to win the tournament on the DraftKings Sportsbook, which ties them for the shortest odds in the field. — Matt LaMarca

Abraham Ancer makes a move at the TOUR Championship

With so many studs to roster on the high end of the pricing for this week’s contest, finding value was a must. Through one day, it looks like Ancer ($6,100; 46.5 DKFP) might be the answer to the value situation. He tied for the best round of the day by shooting a six-under par 64. This vaults Ancer all the way from close to the bottom of the leaderboard up to fifth place. As of now, he’s clearly the top value play as the only player in the top-five priced under $9,700. — Greg Ehrenberg
