2019 Tour Championship Field and Format

The Tour Championship features a strokes-based system, called FedEx Starting Strokes, instituted for the first time in 2019. The player with the lowest total score will win the FedEx Cup and be credited with an official victory at the Tour Championship.

Here’s how it will work:

Justin Thomas, the FedEx Cup points leader after the first two playoffs events, will begin the Tour Championship at 10-under par. Patrick Cantlay will begin at 8-under and Brooks Koepka, who fell from first to third in the FedEx Cup Standings, will start at 7-under.
