2020 Tour Championship: How to Watch, Live Stream FedEx Cup Season Finale

An unprecedented PGA Tour season that featured a three-month hiatus, cancelations and postponements reaches the home straight this weekend with The Tour Championship.

A $15 million purse is up for grabs for the winner at East Lake Golf Club in Georgia, which again plays host to the PGA Tour season finale. Only the top-30 ranked players in the FedEx Cup standings have qualified for the final event of the season, led by world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, who will look to end the season on top of the world rankings.

Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas, the world No. 2 and No. 3 respectively, have both occupied the spot in the rankings this season and arrive in Georgia determined to reclaim the throne.

Rahm arrives at East Lake fresh from a memorable win at the BMW Open in Illinois last week, where the Spaniard sank a monumental 66-foot putt in a playoff to defeat Johnson, while Thomas will be hoping to make amends for a disappointing showing 12 months ago when he entered the season finale as the FedEx Cup leader but faltered badly after a poor first round.

Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy may not get to defend his title at East Lake as his wife, Erica, gave birth to their first child this week. Last week the Northern Irishman said he'd be happy to skip the season finale to attend the birth of his baby girl and it remains to be seen whether he will take to the course as expected this weekend.

Should the four-time major winner take part in the tournament, he will start seven shots adrift of Johnson, as the Tour Championship will feature a staggered scoring start for the second consecutive year. Johnson will start at 10-under par, with Rahm beginning at 8-under.

Here's all you need to know about the season finale.
