If you’ve paid attention to the first three days of the Tour Championship at East Lake, you’ve probably heard something about the purse. The completion of the 2020 FedEx Cup Playoffs leaves a mind-boggling sum of money up for grabs — not only for the winner, but also for the remainder of the field.

Dustin Johnson enters Monday’s final round with the championship firmly within his sights. After beginning the week at -10 as part of the Tour Championship’s new format, Johnson has done nothing to hurt his standing atop the leaderboard.

During Sunday’s third round, Johnson notched seven birdies en route to a five-stroke lead at 19 under. While DJ enters the final round playing some of the best golf of his career, he’ll have to fend off a few of the game’s biggest names sure to make a run for the FedEx Cup.
