Heading To East Lake Golf Club: 2019 FedExCup

Heading To East Lake Golf Club: 2019 FedExCup

Justin Thomas is the man to beat heading to East Lake for the Tour Championship. This is the third leg and season finale of the 2019 FedExCup playoffs with a $60,000,000 purse. However, the grand prize winner takes home $15,000,000. 

Rather than a points reset, Justin Thomas tees off this week’s TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club with a ten under. That’s a two-shot lead over fellow American Patrick Cantlay. 

So, who else is heading to East Lake Golf Club?

Well, that will be the top 30 in the 2019 FedEx Cup standings. 

This includes but is not limited to Justin Thomas, Patrick Cantlay, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Matt Kuchar, Xander Schauffele, Webb Simpson, and Abraham Ancer. 

Who's not Heading To East Lake Golf Club?

Sadly that will be Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Shane Lowry, Francesco Molinari, Jason Day, and Phil Mickelson. 

Top 5 most recent winners of the Tour Championship

  1. 2018 (-11, 269) Tiger Woods – 80th PGA TOUR win.  
  2. 2017 (-12, 268) Xander Schauffele – 2nd PGA TOUR win. 
  3. 2016 (-12, 268) Rory McIlroy – 13th PGA TOUR win. 
  4. 2015 (-9, 271) Jordan Spieth – 6th PGA TOUR win.
