TOUR Championship — Who will win it all?

TOUR Championship — Who will win it all?

The 2022-23 PGA TOUR campaign wraps up at East Lake Golf Club – with the best of the season all competing for golf’s top prize.

The body of work of a FedExCup champion must be consistent, with a little bit of good timing sprinkled in as well.

Take Lucas Glover, for example, where winning back-to-back weeks – including the first FedExCup Playoffs event at the FedEx St. Jude Championship, in Memphis – catapulted the veteran into the fifth spot heading into the TOUR Championship.

“Obviously a pretty fun couple of weeks, not to put it too lightly,” Glover said last week at the BMW Championship.

And then there’s Viktor Hovland, whose course-record 61 Sunday at Olympia Fields quickly moved him into the winner’s circle at the BMW Championship. His Sunday 61 was the lowest final-round score by a winner in a FedExCup Playoffs event.

“To win at a place like this and amongst the best players in the world, it’s pretty cool, and to do it that way, making seven birdies the last nine holes, and yeah, to beat those guys, that was pretty cool,” Hovland said of his final-round duel with Scottie Scheffler and Matt Fitzpatrick.

Rory McIlroy is going for his record fourth FedExCup. Can he become the first to go back-to-back?

Jon Rahm is looking to put the nicest of bows on an incredible season.

Maybe Max Homa will triumph at East Lake for the first time, with a smile of course.

Or 2021 FedExCup champ Patrick Cantlay will sneak up on everyone and join McIlroy and Tiger Woods as the only multi-time winners of the FedExCup.

Whatever the TOUR Championship holds, it’ll be a dramatic end to the season at East Lake.

FIELD NOTES: The full field can be found here… Scheffler heads to East Lake ranked No. 1 in the FedExCup standings for the second straight year – the first time that has occurred. Scheffler, who has won twice this season, has had a remarkable 16 top-10 finishes in 22 starts… Hovland’s spectacular Sunday at the BMW Championship means he’ll head to East Lake ranked second in the FedExCup standings. Hovland shot a course-record 61 at Olympia Fields, including a back-nine 28, to win by two. It was his second win of the season… McIlroy is looking for his record fourth FedExCup title. McIlroy, twice a winner this season, will firmly be in the mix to chase down Scheffler again – just like in 2022. This is McIlroy’s highest position entering the TOUR Championship since the FedExCup Starting Strokes format was introduced in 2019……
