  • The Tour Championship is Aug. 24-27 from East Lake.
  • It is the final event of the 2022-23 PGA Tour season.
  • Golf Channel and CBS will share the TV coverage.

The top 30 players in the FedEx Cup standings after the second playoff event will be in the field at the third and final event — the Tour Championship, August 24-27 from East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Tour Championship format has players getting starting strokes based on their place in the standings.

For example, since Scottie Scheffler is No. 1, he will start at -10, and Jordan Spieth at No. 29 will start at E.
