The TOUR Championship tees off Thursday morning at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. The event will determine the winner of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoff. 30 golfers will participate, and all of them have at least a mathematical chance to win the FedEx Cup based on their performance this weekend.
The headline pairing for the first day of the tournament includes Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods. The twosome tees off at 1:55PM ET. Both men could win the FedEx Cup with a victory, but McIlroy has more wiggle room than Woods.
McIlory currently sits first in the FedEx Cup standings, and it's been projected that he would have a "reasonable chance of winning" the FedEx Cup if he finishes in the top five in the TOUR Championship. Woods would more likely need to win or finish in the top three, and have McIlroy falter.
Masters champion Bubba Watson tees off at 1:05 in a pairing with Sergio Garcia. Watson would need a high finish and poor performances by a number of the current leaders to have a viable shot at winning the FedEx Cup.
