2022 Tour Championship: Leaderboard, upcoming TV schedule originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
The final event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs is in full swing! And now we have ourselves a ball game.
Golfers are on the trek for a $75 million purse and the honor of claiming the FedEx Cup itself. The competition started with 125 players and, throughout each round, the number has dwindled down to 29 golfers now finishing out the run with the Tour Championship.
Who will be taking home the No. 1 spot?
American superstar Scottie Scheffler, who was favored going into this weekend’s tournament, still remains at the top of the rankings. His performance on Thursday and Friday kept him way ahead of his counterparts, which is no surprise for the Masters champion. But Xander Schauffele’s last hole on Friday started to heat up the competition.
When it comes to the FedEx standings, Will Zalatoris and Patrick Cantlay are not far behind. Will they have a chance at claiming the cup over Scheffler in the last 36 holes?
Before we get into the nitty gritty of the second half of the competition, let’s look at what we have in store for the final two rounds, including the leaderboard and tee times:
