All that is at stake is $1.35 million for the winner and a $10 million bonus for the winner of the FedEx Cup. Tomorrow will be an interesting day and for someone a great pay-off.
The Tour Championship is the final event in the PGA Tour’s FedExCup tournament schedule and one of the last big-money events on the Tour’s fall schedule. The Tour became part of the FedExCup in 2007, when it was named the four-event playoff’s finale. The Fed Ex champion now is crowned after the Tour. The FedExCup tournament is limited to only the top 30 golfers on the points list. The Tour has been hosted by East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta since 2004. It is one of the richest events on the PGA Tour.
The 2010 Tour Championship will take place Sept. 23-26. Phil Mickelson is the defending champion, finishing three-under for the tournament, but Tiger Woods finished second and earned enough points in the Tour to take the FedExCup title.
