How the Tour Championship Works

Players at the event are handicapped based on FedEx Cup points earned during the season and competing in the top 30 of the rankings for the Tour Championship.

The highest ranked player starts the 72 hole tournament at 10 under par, while the second seed starts at 8 below.

The third seed starts at bottom seven and so on to the fifth seed at bottom five. Seeds 6-10 start at −4; seeds 11-15 start at -3; and so on, to seeds 26-30, starting at level par.
