PGA Tour Championship leaderboard: Live updates, highlights for Round 4

Follow along with Sporting News for live updates as the top 30 players in FedExCup points play the final PGA Tour Playoff event at East Lake.

The PGA Tour Playoffs finish this weekend with the PGA Tour Championship at East Lake. The top five players in FedExCup points are: Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Marc Leishman and Jon Rahm.

If any of those top five win manage to the Playoff finale, they are mathematically guaranteed a FedExCup victory. A FedExCup win also comes with a $10 million bonus. For Spieth, this would be his second FedExCup victory in three years.

Spieth would also become the second golfer to win the FedExCup more than once after Tiger Woods won in 2007 and 2009. However with the depth in the field and tight competition, we could see the trophies split. One golfer could win the Tour Championship, but another could win the FedExCup.

This hasn't happened since 2009 when Tiger Woods won the FedExCup and Phil Mickelson won the Tour Championship. It would be a lot less-awkward if the trophies split in 2017 between the likely 24-year-old duo of Spieth and Thomas.

Paul Casey holds onto the lead at 12-under with 18 holes left to play. Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner are chasing Casey, each two shots back.

However, eight of the last 10 FedExCup champions of this event did not make it back to East Lake this year.

PGA Tour Championship: Updates, highlights

Follow along below with Round 4 updates from the Tour Championship at East Lake:


Casey falls to -9 with three bogeys, now two shots back from the lead.

Spieth is charging on the back nine, and for a good reason.

Sergio Garcia has four birdies on a bogey-free round so far. He moves to -7, also four strokes back from the leader.

Another chance for JT to make history today.

There are now eight players within four shots of the lead.

Casey falls back to -11. Not a good thing when you have JT and Rahm chasing you.

Spieth holes out for an eagle just after making the turn. He's right back in it at -7.

DJ's aim is dead-on.

And the scenarios keep on coming. Here's how the final group can win the $10 million...

Spoke too soon. Spieth's in some trouble after his tee shot lands way right of the fairway on the 5th hole.

He's got a lot of work to do, but this is the start Spieth needs.
