After a packed season which featured 14 tournaments and 50 events in total, the 2020-21 PGA Tour is coming to an end this weekend and we have all the details on how you can watch the 2021 Tour Championship on TV or online.
Since 2005, every PGA Tour has ended with a playoff system in which the top 30 players in the sport compete for a chance to take home the FedEx Cup. The 2021 FedEx Cup Playoffs began with The Northern Trust and BMW Championship tournaments which were held last month. The Tour Championship is the final event in the FedEx Cup Playoffs and in addition to bringing home the FedEx Cup trophy, the winner will also walk away with $15 million.
The Tour Championship has been held at the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia since 2007 and the course is now the permanent home of the final event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. After acquiring property in the East Lake suburbs of Atlanta back in 1904, the course first opened in 1908 and was designed by golf architect Tom Bendelow.
Going into this weekend's Tour Championship, Patrick Cantley who won this year's BMW Championship is at the top of the standings with 4,302 points followed by Tony Finau who won The Northern Trust with 3,564 points and Bryson DeChambeau with 3,189 points. Dustin Johnson meanwhile, who won the FedEx Cup last year, is currently ranked 15th with 1,890 points.
In addition to the FedEx Cup, a number of other awards are also up for grabs including the PGA Tour Player of the Year, PGA Player of the Year, the Vardon Trophy for the PGA scoring leader, the Byron Nelson Award for the PGA Tour scoring leader and the Arnold Palmer Award for the rookie of the year.
