The field has been shorn down to 30 golfers but it's the top five that have the best shot at the big dough at the Tour Championship. If any of them win they automatically gain the tourney purse plus a $10 million annuity. We all know the case for the favourite Tiger but we'd like to examine the wildcard case for Heath Slocum. The fifth ranked golfer in the FedEx Cup grand finale can top the leaderboard if he channels the momentum and clutch putting that allowed him to hold off the heavyweights at the Barclays a couple weeks back.

An Atlanta homebody, Slocum will have the luxury of sleeping in his own bed between rounds and a gallery teeming with supporters pulling for the local favorite. Now the other 25 guys aren't just playing for birdies and giggles, if one of them wins it and the top five falter they can still have a massive payday too. This is especially plausible if Padraig Harrington (6th) or Sean O'Hair (7th) have banner weekends. But even the last man on the totem pole John Senden has a mathematical shot.

As the NYT puts it:
"If he were to win the Tour Championship, and Woods were to finish 30th, and the No. 2 seed through the No. 6 seed somehow finished outside the top six, Senden would take home the $1.3 million first-place check and the $10 million bonus and the FedEx Cup — and the cow would jump over the moon and the dish would run away with the spoon."
