In 1987, the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) created their stroke play tournament that they call the Tour Championship. Historically, they have played it as one of the final events of the PGA Tour. Currently, it is the final event of a three-tournament series. The player with the most FedEx points at the start of the tournament will earn the number 1 overall seed starting at 10 under par. The second seed will start at 8 under on down to the 5th seed at 5 under par. Of course, the 26-30 bracket starts at even par.
This year, the PGA is holding the tournament beginning on September 4 and finishing on September 7th, 2020. There are several ways to watch the champion and the broadcast partners will be live from the East Lake Golf Course. However, you can access it everywhere with a VPN.

The East Lake Golf Club located in Atlanta, Georgia hosts this tournament and has every year since 2004, the 100th anniversary of the club. Though the course has stayed the same for the last 16 years, the course has seen some interesting things. In 2019, a lightning storm injured spectators. Another change has to do with the increase in the tournament purse. The total purse for the tournament is a staggering $46 million with the winner’s share being $15 million. Of course, that is a great payday for everyone involved, but it will be an especially lucrative weekend for the winner.
