As the Barclay’s tournament begins in the US we look at who is favourite to win.

Unsurprisingly Tiger woods is the bookies favourite to win the Barclays tournament at 11/2 with Rory Mcllroy sitting in second at 12/1.

Rory Mcllroy is still searching for his best form but cannot be ruled out to win this competition with the talent he has shown throughout his career.

Tiger Woods again is arguably the worlds best golf player that we have seen but at times he has dipped in and out of form but has maintained his reputation and pulled of some amazing shots in his career and rightly goes into this tournament as favourite.

It will be interesting to see how Mcllroy does with pressure on him to do well being the new young face of Nike next to the master that is Tiger Woods.

Tiger expects the golf course to be a challenge for all golfers saying: “The golf course is obviously very different to the last time we played it.

“Not only have they made a bunch of changes but it’s really dry out and certainly last time we played it, it was not that way with the weather. The greens have got some speed to them and the fairways were giving it up so it’s going to be a heck of a test.”

Woods then went on to explain: ”The play-offs – the way they’ve been structured – are different,

“Theoretically you can win every tournament of the year and not be FedEx champion. Whoever’s in the top five, whoever wins that event wins the FedEx Cup so it’ll be interesting to see what happens.”
