It all comes down to this for the PGA Tour.

The Tour Championship serves as the tour’s final event of the year and a culmination of the FedExCup Playoffs. Oh, and as if the title itself wasn’t enough, the event has a whopping $75 million prize pool – $18 million of which goes to the winner.

Thirty golfers have made it to the Tour Championship after surviving the first two playoff events. Viktor Hovland is coming off a win at last weekend’s BMW Championship, while Lucas Glover won the two tournaments before that. Still, Scottie Scheffler is the man to beat after earning the most FedExCup points this season.

2023 Tour Championship starting strokes

FedExCup points are converted to starting strokes for the Tour Championship.

The PGA Tour adopted the stroke-based bonus system for the tournament in 2019, giving golfers different scores to start their opening round. The players with the most FedExCup points on the season get a greater advantage to begin the Tour Championship.

The starting strokes range from 10-under, given to the FedExCup points leader, to even, given to the last five golfers to qualify for the event. Here is how the starting strokes have been assigned for 2023:

  • 10-under: Scottie Scheffler
  • 8-under: Viktor Hovland
  • 7-under: Rory McIlroy
  • 6-under: Jon Rahm
  • 5-under: Lucas Glover
  • 4-under: Max Homa, Patrick Cantlay, Brian Harman, Wyndham Clark, Matt Fitzpatrick
  • 3-under: Tommy Fleetwood, Russell Henley, Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler, Xander Schauffele
  • 2-under: Tom Kim, Sungjae Im, Tony Finau, Corey Conners, Si Woo Kim
  • 1-under: Taylor Moore, Nick Taylor, Adam Schenk, Collin Morikawa, Jason Day
  • Even: Sam Burns, Emiliano Grillo, Tyrrell Hatton, Jordan Spieth, Sepp Straka
