FedEx Cup Winners, Hot Clubs and Bobby’s East Lake

Here’s how; Senden must win the Tour Championship, Tiger Woods must finish 30th; Steve Stricker must finish seventh or worse; Jim Furyk must finish fifth or worse; Zach Johnson must finish fourth or worse; Heath Slocum must finish third or worse; Padraig Harrington must finish third or worse.

The weather near Atlanta has finally cleared and allowed the grounds crew to get the East Lake Golf Club back in shape after torrential rains flooded the area.

East Lake Golf Club is the home course of Bobby Jones and loaded with history. It has been host to seventeen major championships and the 1963 Ryder Cup.

It plays at 235 yards to a well bunkered green which should give us plenty of thrills on Sunday. Check out East Lake Golf Club.
