The final event of the PGA Tour FedEx Cup Playoffs is the Tour Championship, August 24-27 from East Lake.

The Tour Championship format has a strokes-based system at the start of this event to reward play for the events prior.

For example, since Scottie Scheffler is No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings going into the week, he will start at -10. Since Jordan Spieth is No. 29, he will start at E.

The winner will be declared the FedEx Cup champion at the end of the week.

Below are the pairings and first-round tee times for every golfer in the field. They will be repaired for Friday, Saturday and Sunday based on score.
