Tour Championship Tracker

UPDATE No. 14 (5:33 p.m.): Schauffele BARELY gets his two-and-a-half footer to drop for birdie at the 18th, but he does! Schauffele is your Tour Championship winner by a shot!

UPDATE No. 13 (5:26 p.m.): Schauffele is playing the 18th tied for the lead. Remember, it’s a par 5. A birdie wins.

UPDATE No. 12 (5:22 p.m.): Justin Thomas pars 18 to finish at 11 under and win the FedEx Cup. Will he capture the Tour Championship, too? Schauffele is tied for the lead at 11 under playing the last.

UPDATE No. 11 (5:09 p.m.): Justin Thomas birdies 17 to move to 11 under and he’s now tied for the lead!

UPDATE No. 10 (4:53 p.m.): Schauffele buried this crucial par putt at 14 and followed with a strong two-putt par at 15.

He’s still 11 under and one ahead. Justin Thomas and Kevin Kisner are one back. Thomas just birdied 16 to move within one.

UPDATE No. 9 (4:45 p.m.): Spieth can’t get the look he got below for birdie to drop, and he’s in at 7 under.

He’s projected to finish second in FedEx Cup. Justin Thomas is projected to win it, as he’s currently T-3 at 9 under. If Thomas drops in the last three holes, though, Spieth may sneak this one out…

UPDATE No. 8 (4:28 p.m.): Xander Schauffele birdies 13 to move to 11 under and the solo lead. He’s one ahead of Kevin Kisner.

Justin Thomas is T-3 at 9 under with four to play and Jordan Spieth is T-6 at 7 under with one to play. For a moment a few minutes ago, both were projected 1st in the FedEx Cup standings, a tie that would be broken by a sudden-death playoff. Currently, Thomas is projected to beat out Spieth here by a slim margin.

UPDATE No. 7 (4:05 p.m.): Justin Thomas birdies No. 12 to reach 10 under, and he is now tied for the lead after Kisner bogeys 10!

Xander Schauffele is also tied for the lead. Spieth is three back with three to play.

UPDATE No. 6 (3:35 p.m.): Kevin Kisner birdies Nos. 6 and 7 to move to 11 under and he’s your new solo leader!

Paul Casey has dropped back to 10 under after bogeys at 4 and 5. Justin Thomas is 9 under and two back at the turn. Joran Spieth birdied 13 and is now within three at 8 under.

UPDATE No. 5 (2:52 p.m.): Jordan Spieth holes out for eagle at No. 10 to move to 7 under! he’s now just four back!

UPDATE No. 4 (2:50 p.m.): Paul Casey has bogeyed No. 4 to move back to 11 under. And that puts Justin Thomas right back in this, as the 24-year-old has birdied Nos. 3 and 6 to move within two…

Oh, and Thomas is currently projected to capture the FedEx Cup in his T-2 position.

UPDATE No. 3 (1:55 p.m.): The final group is off! Here are more FedEx Cup scenarios!

UPDATE No. 2 (1:45 p.m.): Spieth has a birdie and four pars to start, which puts him 5 under and seven back. He entered the week No. 1 in FedEx Cup points.

If he wants to win the FedEx Cup, he’ll need some help today, but it is possible.

UPDATE No. 1 (12:15 p.m.): The early groups are off, and so far just one player (Jhonattan Vegas) is under par for the round.

The final group doesn’t tee off for another 90 minutes. We’ll keep you posted on what’s happening behind them in the meantime.
