THE TOUR Championship

THE TOUR Championship is like the Super Bowl of golf.  With only the top 30 golfers competing in this event, the pressure will be on to see who can finish their season with a big win.  It's anyone's guess as to who will win this event as we've seen four different winners in the last four tournaments. 

This years event, which kicks off tomorrow, will be played at the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta Georgia, a historic club which celebrated it's 100 year anniversary in 2004.   Here's a quick look at this years event:

Course: East Lake Golf Club
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Par:  70
Course Length:  7,304 yards
Prize Money:  $7,500,000
Last Years Winner:  Phil Mickelson @ -9

With the top golfers in the world playing in this event, it's tough to pick a favorite.  It will come down to consistency, determination and who can keep their composure on the home stretch.  We'll be keeping an eye on defending champion Phil Mickelson, as well as up and comer Ryan Moore.  Follow along with the live TOUR Championship leaderboard.
