It’s time for the third round of the Tour Championship from East Lake GC. Here’s everything you need to know about watching the penultimate round of the FedEx Cup Playoffs on Sunday.

Tour Championship round 3 preview

Dustin Johnson still holds the lead heading into Sunday at the Tour Championship, which will end (in atypical fashion for a PGA Tour event) on Labor Day Monday in the U.S.

Johnson, who began the week at 10 under as a result of the Tour Championship’s carryover-based scoring system, holds a narrow lead over the field at 13 under after a pedestrian opening two rounds. Sungjae Im and Xander Schauffele are closely lurking behind DJ on the leaderboard at one and two strokes back, respectively.

The pair launched themselves into contention after consecutive rounds in the 60s to open the weekend, but they’re far from the only big names near the top of the leaderboard. Justin Thomas (-10), Collin Morikawa and Jon Rahm (-9) round out the top 5 and figure to factor heavily down the stretch.

Of course, there’s added motivation for everyone atop the leaderboard this weekend with the Tour Championship’s gargantuan $15 million winner’s share.
