Schedule of Events

The TOUR Championship is the PGA TOUR season’s Moment of Truth. Only the 30 best players on the PGA TOUR in a given year advance to the season finale at East Lake Golf Club where one player is crowned the FedExCup champion and receives the $18 million bonus that comes with it. Qualifying for the TOUR Championship is a common goal shared by every member of the PGA TOUR, from those competing in their rookie year to the world’s top-ranked players.
Starting Strokes Format
The top-30 players in the FedExCup standings through the previous week’s BMW Championship officially qualify for the TOUR Championship in Atlanta. To determine the FedExCup champion in Atlanta, the PGA TOUR institutes a strokes-based bonus system – Starting FedExCup Strokes – related to the FedExCup standings through the BMW Championship.
The FedExCup points leader after the first two Playoffs events will begin the TOUR Championship at 10-under par. The next four players will start at 8-under through 5-under, respectively. The next five will begin at 4-under, regressing by one stroke per five players until those ranked Nos. 26-30 start at even par.
It’s amazing the access fans have with just a grounds ticket. Here are the venues anyone can pop in and check out!
NEW: 1st Tee Seating
The TOUR Championship has made it easier than ever for fans to post up on the 1st tee and watch all 15 groups begin their round at East Lake Golf Club. Thanks to a new double-decker buildout, Daily Grounds ticketholders have access to the second floor of the Shaded Bleachers presented by NetJets, making the 1st Tee a spot to check out during the TOUR Championship.
While sitting in the shade at the 1st Tee, fans will also have access to a new beverage concession area at the top of the grandstand, along with seating options, providing a unique vantage point to the start of the round.
As an enhancement to the Shaded Bleachers presented by NetJets, the 1st Tee experience will also feature a video board to highlight the best players in the world and inject even more excitement to the area. From the Hope Tee Shot Ceremony to start the round on Thursday through the last tee time on Sunday, the 1st tee will be the place to be at the TOUR Championship.
SO Cool Zone presented by Southern Company
Take a stroll through the SO Cool Zone presented by Southern Company near the 15th and 14th greens, where shade sails, lounge furniture and misters will keep guests cool as they watch the telecast on the big screen. While there, fans can grab a bite from Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, Universal Joint, and Henri’s Bakery! After lunch, the PGA TOUR Fan Shop is there to handle all shopping needs!

The Calamity Jane is light and refreshing, perfect for the summertime. With such carefully chosen ingredients to maximize flavor, including Gold Peak Peach Tea, Topo Chico and ginger beer, the Calamity Jane deserves to be served in an equally grand cup and fans can enjoy it that way in a one-of-a-kind TOUR Championship YETI tumbler (while supplies last), which is available in all public bars on course.
