2021 Tour Championship tee times, TV coverage, viewer's guide
Dustin Johnson poses with the trophy after winning the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in 2020.
Somehow things are about to get even more dramatic.
After a brilliant end to the BMW Championship in which Patrick Cantlay outlasted Bryson DeChambeau, needing 78 holes to do so, we are all set up for a down-to-the-wire Tour Championship at East Lake featuring 30 of the best golfers in the world to decide the 2021 FedEx Cup champion.
The aforementioned Cantlay will start atop the leader board on Thursday at 10 under—under the Tour Championship’s Starting Strokes format—with DeChambeau and Tony Finau in the second and third spots at eight under and seven under respectively. Jon Rahm and Cameron Smith will round out the top five, and defending champion Dustin Johnson has qualified for East Lake for the 13th year in a row. The last two FedEx Cup winners have started in the No. 1 and No. 5 spots respectively. No one has won two years in a row since 1998.
After sitting on the bubble heading into the BMW, Erik Van Rooyen, Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy will all make the trip to East Lake to play in the final tour event of the season. A fourth-place finish for McIlroy at Caves Valley has the two-time FedEx Cup winner in the T-16 spot starting at two under this week.
The winner of this event will receive a $15 million share of the $60 million purse and the FedEx Cup trophy.
