The Cream Has Risen

I must admit that I don't tend to get all that jazzed up about tbe FedEx playoffs. I still focus on the Majors, and when they're done, it's pretty much all over but for the crying. But this week I'm going to be excited to see arguably the two best players in the game going at it head to head tomorrow at the Northern Trust to determine who will likely be number one in the race.

Spieth, with a three shot lead after his spectacular 64 today, has to be the favojrite; especially when you consider that he's five for five with a two shot lead going into the final round. However, DJ's closing birdie to get within three could loom large tomorrow, especially if Jordan's putter cools off a bit. 

Tomorrow we will have the battle of the bomber verses the man who wields the flatstick like a sword when he's in the mood. Therefore, if you believe in the old saying, "drive for show and putt for dough," you have to like Spieth's chances, particularly in view of his Tigeresque winning record with the lead. 

It isn't over yet. But, regardless of what happens tomorrow, the cream has definitely risen to the top. It should make for some compelling viewing.
