Event Preview

Medinah turned into a shootout last week, as Justin Thomas shot 25-under par to win by three strokes over Patrick Cantlay. He now enters the FedExCup finale ranked first in the standings, which means he’ll be given the most “starting strokes.” Before we get into the course breakdown, we need to cover the unique format for the Tour Championship this year. Based on the FedExCup standings, golfers will be given a head start in terms of strokes, anywhere from 10-under par to no head start at all. The idea came about because a few times over the years the winner of the Tour Championship and the winner of the FedExCup ended up being different golfers. Now, whoever ends up at the top of the leaderboard on Sunday will win both the Tour Championship and the $15 million prize.
