It has been another exciting year on the PGA Tour and the 2013-2014 journey culminates this weekend at East Lake Golf Club where the top 29 players in the FedExCup rankings have gathered for the season finale – The TOUR Championship.
With an $8 million purse, a $1.44 million winner’s share and a $10 million bonus for the FedExCup Champion on the line, players will need to remain focused and keep their nerves in check as they take on the Donald Ross layout.
"I'm looking at it like we are just at a golf tournament...and let the other stuff play out on Sunday afternoon," said Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Bubba Watson.
And for others like Pro V1x loyalist and last week’s winner at the 2014 BMW Championship Billy Horschel it’s about embracing the nerves and having a game plan in place.
"I always get nervous, I always have butterflies before a round of golf. I think the majority of the guys out here do...Personally, I prepare for a round of golf mentally, I try to control my breathing and calm down".
No matter the strategy or approach, we’re looking forward to another exciting finish at the TOUR Championship.
