The final event of the 2014-15 wraparound season, this week’s Tour Championship is held at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.
Thirty pros will battle for the FedEx Cup title on this 7,307-yard, par-70 test. Motivation to win the $10 million purse, along with the season championship, could be at its highest among Jason Day and Jordan Spieth.
Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Henrik Stenson are the next closest players within striking distance. Following a reset of points after the BMW Championship, anyone can win it all by conquering East Lake and receiving help from those ahead of them in points.
Aggregate scores have reached the low end of double-digits in three of the last six years, topping out at 13-under par in 2013.
Weather could be a factor Friday and Saturday. Otherwise, comfortable temperatures are in the forecast.
Day has four wins in his last six starts, with the other two resulting in Top 12 showings. He finished tied for fourth in 2014 and tied for sixth in 2012.
Fowler has shed the stigma of not being a big-game hunter, capable of shooting scores that others have to chase.
