Justin Thomas might hold all the aces heading into this week's season-ending Tour Championship, which ultimately decides the fate of the season-long FedEx Cup, but there are plenty of big-name players tucked in behind ready to make the American work hard for his second FedEx Cup title.
Thomas, the 2017 FedEx Cup winner, will start with a two-stroke lead at East Lake as the FedEx Cup final operates under a new staggered start to reward those players that have performed best throughout the 2019 season, especially in the Playoffs where bigger points have been awarded.
The other big change in 2019 is the HUGE sum of bonus money that is being dished out to the players competing in the 30-man Tour Championship.
There is a record $70 million up for grabs this week, if you include the $10 million that was distributed among the Wyndham Rewards top 10 winners.
There is no longer a purse for the Tour Championship, just bonus money given based off a player's finish at East Lake.
This year's winner will receive $15 million, which marks a $5 million increase from the previous top prize.
The runner-up will earn $5 million, and every player at East Lake will make at least $395,000.
WHAT THE TOP 10 WILL EARN THIS WEEK:
1st place - $15 million
2nd place - $5 million
3rd place - $4 million
4th place - $3 million
5th place - $2.5 million
6th place - $1.9 million
7th place - $1.3 million
8th place - $1.1 million
9th place - $950,000
10th place - $830,000
