As part of the PGA’s restructured tournament schedule, the PGA TOUR Championship will now be played in August instead of September, with the 2019 tournament set for Aug. 21-25 at the East Lake Golf Club.

Thirty top golfers – likely to include Brooks Koepka, Rory Mcllroy, and Matt Kuchar – will vie for the coveted FedEx Cup.

Between matches, fans can enjoy a cocktail in the Grey Goose 19th Hole, refuel with friends over a meal prepared by the city’s best local restaurants, cool off and test putting skills in the SO Cool Zone and much more. Plus, kids get in free.

Along with the new dates, the TOUR Championship will also unveil a new scoring format to determine the FedEx Cup champ. The standings leader heading into the TOUR Championship will start the tournament at 10-under par. The next four players will start at 8-under through 5-under, respectively. The next five will begin at 4-under, regressing by one stroke per five players until those ranked Nos. 26-30 start at even par.

Seventy-two holes of stroke play will determine who gets the FedEx Cup and a $15 million payout.

Daily tickets range from $35 to $75 and are available along with more information at tourchampionship.com.
