Betfred Golf Odds: Jordan Spieth Favourite for Tour Championship After First-Round 67

Jordan Spieth is the top contender to win this year’s Tour Championship after ending Thursday’s first round three shots off leader Kyle Stanley.

An opening-day 67 was enough to see three-under-par Spieth into early contention for the 2017 Tour title, and he’s now a 4/1 (5.00) investment with Betfred, while Stanley is a 11/1 (12.00) underdog despite taking the lead after Thursday.

Of his first-round display, Stanley said: “We only played nine (holes) on Tuesday and nine on Wednesday and we were joking maybe that’s not a bad thing. I love the golf course and I enjoyed the day.”

Second-favourite Justin Thomas is almost twice the price of Spieth at 15/2 (7.50) after ending Thursday on the same score, with Dustin Johnson not far behind at two-under par, currently priced at 8/1 (9.00).

English veteran Paul Casey is also among the contenders at 9/1 (10.00) after one day of action and said: “I’m very happy. It’s a golf course that doesn’t yield a lot of birdies, it’s tough and you have to strike the ball well and I did that.”
