PGA DFS Course Stats: TOUR Championship at East Lake

This week’s stop on the PGA Tour carousel brings us to the greater Chicago area for a course that has seen a limited run, but is not totally unfamiliar, in recent bigtime golf history. We will use as our template this week the 2003 US Open hosted here (won by Jim Furyk) and while on paper they are growing the rough and speeding the greens enough to be pretty comparable to a US Open, I wouldn’t be surprised if it some how ends up playing SLIGHTLY easier than that, it should also be noted that in 2003 Furyk shot a -8 to win here which is quite a low score by US Open standards. Anyway, let’s take a look!
