The TOUR Championship is finally just around the corner. For a comprehensive list of scenarios on how each participating golfer can win the FedEx Cup, check out this great list put together by PGAtour.com. Now if you're thinking about placing a friendly wager down on this weekend's event, or if you just want to check out the field, here is the Brofessional Golfer's official power ranking tiers. This list (put together exclusively by BG) features all 30 golfers who will be participating in the TOUR Championship on Thursday:

 

Wins FedExCup with Win in the TOUR Championship (Current FedEx Cup Playoffs Rank in Parenthesis)

Dustin Johnson (1)

Patrick Reed (2)

Adam Scott (3)

Jason Day (4)

Paul Casey (5)

This group contains some household names and golfing staples over the past year. Paul Casey sneaks into this group as he's been red hot over the past month. This is the "win and in" group. No excuses for these guys. They need to take care of business this weekend as they control their own destinies.

 

The Household Names

Spieth (7)

McIlroy (6)

Everyone knows these guys and they're obviously both a threat to win at East Lake this week. Rory got his big win of the seaosn at TPC Boston two weeks ago. I just have that feeling Spieth may have saved his best for last. Back-to-back champ for Spieth? Don't count it out.

 

Ryder Cup Teammates?

Snedeker (11)

J Thomas (12)

Phil (13)

Kuchar (16)

These guys will have plenty of fans in the gallery following them around throughout the weekend. Our Twitter has spearheaded the #JTforTheCup movement. Would be great to get Justin Thomas and his stache representing this great country at Hazeltine. As for the other three players in this group? All three will be representing the USA in the Ryder Cup. C'mon, DL3, put JT on the squad. Phil has had a phenomenal season. He deserves to cap it off with a win at East Lake.

 

Nice Surprises

Russell Knox (8)

Emiliano Grillo (9)

Jimmy Walker (10)

Ryan Moore (14)

Hideki Matsuyama (17)

Walker won the PGA Championship out of nowhere. Furthermore, this group of five has been competitive all year. These guys probably wouldn't be in anyone's "preseason picks" but they have been nice surprises. All could make some noise this week.

 

Who?

Chappell (15)

Si Woo Kim (18)

Kisner (19)

The 21-year-old Kim won the Wyndham Championship a month ago. He's been inconsistent which will come with youth. 

 

Well, at Least You Made It This Far

Woodland (20)

Castro (21)

Na (22)

McGirt (23)

O'Hair (25)

A far cry from your household names, these guys should be happy making it this far. All five are longshots this weekend. 

 

Brainfreeze Scenarios to Win

vegas

Watson (24)

Berger (26)

Dufner (27)

Holmes (28)

Vegas (29)

Schwartzel (30)

This group contains some household names. A two-time Masters Champ (Watson), up-and-comer (Berger), PGA Champ/legend (Dufner), Ryder Cup member (Holmes), and another Masters Champ (Schwartzel) makes this tier very exciting. It's too bad all of these guys are out of it because this is a skilled and experienced group. You can expect to see a few of these names dancing around near the top of the leader board. 

Stay tuned for the Brofessional Golfer Tour Championship Preview out later this week!
