The PGA TOUR presents The 2022 TOUR Championship from the East Lake Golf Club right outside of downtown Atlanta, Georgia from Thursday August 25 to Sunday, August 28.

The TOUR Championship is the third and final leg of the FedEx Cup with the top 30 ranked players taking part in the competition on the Par 70 course. The winner of the FedEx Cup will receive $18 million.

Patrick Cantlay, winner of last week’s BMW Championship, won the FedEx Cup in 2021 and is No. 2 going into this week’s event. He has eight starting strokes and is +330 on DraftKings Sportsbook to win the event given the additional strokes. Scottie Scheffler, who has 10 starting strokes, is +260.

The weather for this weekend in Atlanta might be tricky. There’s a healthy chance of thunderstorms all four days.
