After a year of competition, the 2019-20 PGA Tour season and FedEx Cup Playoffs come to an end this week with the 2020 Tour Championship at East Lake. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the event.

Tour Championship preview

This week, the Top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings duke it out for all the marbles. How many marbles exactly? A lot. The winner alone will take home a cool $15 million, with the runner-up cashing in for $5 million, nearly twice the winner’s share of any other tournament.

The two players positioned best for those big checks are the same players who faced off in a playoff at last week’s BMW Championship: Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. While Rahm prevailed in that playoff, thanks to an incredible 66-foot winning putt, it’s Johnson who holds the No. 1 position in the standings heading into the week. He will start the event at 10 under par, while Rahm will begin two shots back at eight under.

But we’re not ready to hand the Cup to either of those players just yet. Defending FedEx Cup champion Rory McIlroy will tee off with a score of three under, but if he’s on his game, he could definitely mount a serious challenge come Sunday. World No. 3 Justin Thomas will have a better chance, as he’ll only have three shots to make up.
