The PGA Tour’s final tournament of the year The PGA Tour Championship is set to be held September 20th-23rd at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta. Since 2007 the Tour Championship has been the final event of the four tournament FedEx Cup playoff and eligibility is determined by being in the top 30 in FedEx Cup points amassed during the PGA Season. Since 2004 East Lake Golf Course has been the exclusive home for the PGA Tour Championship. The winner of this years event will receive a $2 million dollar prize and the FedEx Cup champion will take down a hefty $10 Million dollar prize.
Although the top 30 golfers in the world will be at this tournament the event will be headlined by a returning Tiger Woods appearing in the event for the first time since 2013 and currently in 20th place in FedEx Cup standings. As a fan favorite you can expect that the galleries around him will be packed all four days of the event.
Other notables to tee off in the event will be FedEx Cup point leader Bryson DeChambeau, Georgia’s own Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, and international star Rory McIlroy.
Daily grounds tickets will be between $25-$70 and gates open at 9:00 A.M. All parking for tournament week is free at two locations (there is no on-site parking) located at Georgia State Stadium Thursday and Friday and Cellairis Amphitheatre Saturday and Sunday. A free shuttle will be provided for transportation to East Lake Golf Club.
