Thirty players, 72 holes, $18 million to the winner. These are stakes at this week’s Tour Championship, where the FedEx Cup champion will be crowned at East Lake Country Club in Atlanta as the PGA Tour culminates its 2022-23 season.
Rory McIlroy is looking to become the first player to win back-to-back FedEx Cup titles. The Northern Irishman started the final round a year ago six shots off the pace of leader Scottie Scheffler, only to shoot a closing 66 and rally to claim his third career FedEx Cup, adding to wins in 2016 and 2019.
But if McIlroy is to repeat, he has his work cut out for him. Unique to this week’s event is the tournament’s staggered start format, where the No. 1 ranked player in the FedEx Cup standings heading into the week—Scott Scheffler for the second straight year—starts the tournament at 10 under par, with the rest of the field playing catch-up. McIlroy, No. 3 in the standings, begins the first round three back of Scheffler at seven under.
While the winner takes home $18 million, all 30 players competing will earn at least $500,000. Here’s a break down of the FedEx Cup bonus payouts:
