Even though major season is in the books, the FedEx Cup Playoffs wrap up with a bang Sunday as the 2022 Tour Championship is set to distribute a whopping $18 million grand prize and plenty of other riches to the top golfers on the PGA Tour. Beyond the money at stake are an immense amount of storylines to follow during a key time in the sport's history.
Scottie Scheffler is looking to become the first golfer to win five times on the PGA Tour since Justin Thomas in 2017, and he's aiming to do so by completing the richest season in the history of golf. Scheffler got off to the perfect start to reach that summit, shooting 9 under through the first 36 holes, though his advantage dissipated as he led by just one stroke entering the final day of play at East Lake Golf Club. Scheffler, however, got off to an incredibly hot start Sunday, scoring birdies on four of his last six third-round holes to take a six-stroke advantage into the final round.
Meanwhile, Xander Schauffele fell back, following a Friday 63 with a third-round 70 as he was unable to score birdie on his penultimate back nine. Not only did Schauffele fall significantly behind Scheffler, a third-round 63 boosted Rory McIlroy into a tie for second place.
Surprisingly, Scheffler struggled to start the fourth round, and all of a sudden, the Tour Championship is up in the air. Schauffele, McIlroy and Sungjae Im are the closest to supplanting Scheffler atop the leaderboard as the FedEx Cup Playoffs come to a close.
While attending the FedEx Cup Playoffs can fun and memorable, simply being able to watch high-stakes golf is an incredible treat. CBSSports.com is thrilled to bring you wall-to-wall coverage of the Tour Championship all week.
