Rahm confident ahead of Tour Championship

World number one Jon Rahm says he is full of confidence heading to this week's season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club.

The event marks the finale of the PGA Tour season and FedEx Cup playoff series with 30 of the best players on the planet doing battle to be crowned FedEx Cup champion and the $15million jackpot on offer.

Rahm is a 4.50 chance to win the Tour Championship which sees players start on a predetermined score decided by their FedEx Cup ranking.

Patrick Cantlay, who beat Bryson DeChambeau in a playoff to win last week's BMW Championship, is the FedEx Cup leader heading to East Lake and will begin the tournament on ten under.

Rahm, meanwhile, is ranked fourth after two of the three playoff events and will begin the event on six under - four shots behind Cantlay.

And while the Spaniard will start with ground to make up on the American, Rahm believes that he has the perfect game for East Lake and is confident he can overhaul the current leader.

He told reporters: "This is a ball striker's golf course and my ball striking has been very, very good, and I'm only four shots back, so it's only a one-shot difference each day, and we all know that four shots can be gone very, very quickly.

"So I'm confident in what can be done. Obviously, Patrick has to worry about his own game, but I feel like I'm doing the right things and I'm giving myself a really good chance."
