By

Three golfers are tied heading into the second round of the Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta.

Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele stand at 10-under after 18 holes. Each took different paths to get there. Schauffele shot a 6-under, bogey-free 64 Thursday. Koepka posted a 67. Thomas shot an even-par 70.

The golfers entered the day with different scores thanks to the new scoring system being used in the final PGA Tour and FedEx Cup Playoff event of the 2018-19 season. It’s a format that seems to be well received so far.

There are 10 players who stand within four shots of the lead, including Rory McIlroy (-9), Matt Kuchar (-8) and Patrick Cantlay (-8).

The winner of the Tour Championship earns $15 million and the 2019 FedEx Cup as season champion. The runner-up gets $5 million. Not too shabby. But one shot could equal a $10 million loss or gain.

The $45 million up for grabs this weekend in Atlanta is FedEx Cup bonus money and does not count toward a player’s official PGA Tour season earnings. The first-place prize and overall purse are the largest single-event  payouts in PGA Tour history.
