Next Tour Championship
In 2019, the Tour Championship scoring format changed to allow the winner of the tournament to also capture the FedEx Cup title. The player entering the week with the most FedEx Cup points would start at 10-under par, second place at 8-under, in third at 7-under, fourth at 6-under, and fifth at 5-under. The final 26-30th ranked players would begin the round at even par.
Rory McIlroy returns to East Lake as the defending champion, having won his third FedEx Cup title last season, joining Tiger Woods as the only player to have won three times. Rory fired a 21-under par, the third year in a row that tally was the winning number, defeating Scottie Scheffler and Sungjae Im by one shot.
East Lake Golf Club
East Lake is the oldest course in the Atlanta area, with an established date of 1904. The original course was designed by Tom Bendelow and redesigned by Donald Ross less than a decade later.
A par-72 on the card will play as a par-70 this week for the Tour pros. The course measures 7,346 yards and features deep bunkers, perched greens, and penal rough if you miss the fairways.
Following the conclusion of this week’s tournament, the course will undergo substantial renovations to restore the layout back to its original design.
Tour Championship Field
The field is packed with the top players in the world, all fighting for the championship and the $18 million dollar check that goes to the winner. In total, $75 million will be handed out to players as part of the FedEx Cup bonus pool for their finish in the season-long race.
World no. 1 Scottie Scheffler sits atop the standings and will enter the week with a two-shot advantage over Viktor Hovland. Hovland buoyed up the standings with his victory at the BMW Championship last week.
Rory McIlroy begins the tournament in third and three shots back of Scheffler as he tries to become the first golfer to have four FedEx Cup titles to his name. Masters champion Jon Rahm will start in the fourth slot after picking up four of his 11 career victories this year.
Sam Burns, Emiliano Grillo, Tyrrell Hatton, Jordan Spieth, and Sepp Straka were the final five players to punch their ticket to East Lake. Straka was the last man in, narrowly edging Sahith Theegala by nine points.
Tour Championship Betting Favorites
Scheffler (+136) enters the tournament as the betting favorite as he attempts to secure his first FedEx Cup championship. McIlroy (+350) and Hovland (+480) come in right behind Scheffler, hoping to take advantage of their starting position.
Rahm (+880) and Patrick Cantlay (+1825) round out the betting favorites. Cantlay was the FedEx Cup winner in 2021, while Rahm is still searching for his first title.
