2021 Tour Championship coverage Live stream watch online channel TV schedule radio tee times The third of three FedEx Cup Playoffs events takes place in Atlanta this week The last tournament of the busiest season in the history of the PGA Tour (50 events in all) has arrived, and there is plenty at stake over the remaining three days of the 2021 Tour Championship in Atlanta. The 30 best golfers on the PGA Tour this season are teeing it up at East Lake Golf Club with $46 million in prize money on the line.
Dustin Johnson is the defending champion, but he entered this week’s tournament seven back of leader Patrick Cantlay. Rory McIlroy won this event in both 2016 and 2019, but he started eight back of Cantlay, who opened at 10 under after winning the BMW Championship at Caves Valley Golf Club last weekend.
Cantlay remained on top at 13 under after Round 1, but it was Jon Rahm who made waves with a 5-under 65 for the round of the day. He sits at 11 under just two shots back of Cantlay with 54 holes to play.
There are myriad storylines to follow, and not all of them involve that outrageous amount of cash at stake on Sunday afternoon. Scottie Scheffler and Sam Burns are trying to play their way onto the Ryder Cup team. Patrick Reed is trying to bounce back after being hospitalized the first week of the playoffs (he hasn’t played either of the first two events). He’s also trying to play his way onto the Ryder Cup team.
There’s a PGA Tour Player of the Year award up for grabs, likely more theatrics surrounding Bryson DeChambeau, who has become this season’s lightning rod du jour. Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas are vying for their second FedEx Cup titles. Basically if you like professional golf at all, there’s something to get you excited for the event at East Lake this weekend, and CBS Sports will bring you updates and recaps of the action all week long. Here’s how to follow online and on TV as well.
