2019 Tour Championship leaderboard, scores: Justin Thomas on top as lightning ends Round 3 early Saturday
The leaders will continue play Sunday morning with a handful of holes left in Round 3
While Brooks Koepka was the overwhelming favorite to come away with the Tour Championship and walk away with the $15 million prize at East Lake Golf Club entering the weekend, Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy are right there with him. In fact, Thomas led the field at 12 under thru five holes, one shot ahead of Koepka and McIlroy, when play was ended early Saturday in Atlanta after lightning struck behind the 16th hole..
Play had already been halted with golfers off the course due to weather. The round was called around 5:30 p.m. ET. Round 3 action will continue at 8 a.m. on Sunday with Round 4 -- the final 18 holes of the 2018-19 PGA Tour season -- beginning immediately afterward.
Koepka is still the +200 favorite with McIlroy at +225 and Thomas -- the actual leader of the event -- at +250. This would be Koepka's first Tour Championship win and first FedEx Cup victory. It would be the second of each for McIlroy, who won both in 2016. In 2017, Thomas was the FedEx Cup winner although Xander Schauffele -- currently in fourth -- took home the Tour Championship.
This year, and presumably well into the future, the Tour Championship winner and FedEx Cup champ are one and the same on the leaderboard. That cuts down on the confusion and, given the pedigree of the players on this board, should make for some compelling golf come Sunday.
