The 2019-20 PGA Tour season all comes down to this.

Only 30 golfers have a chance at winning the FedEx Cup championship with a victory at the Tour Championship this weekend. What began as a 125-man field was cut down to 70 after The Northern Trust and then trimmed again to 30 following the BMW Championship.

The leader of those elite 30 is Dustin Johnson. The No. 1 golfer atop the FedEx Cup standings earned his position with a win at The Northern Trust and a second-place finish at the BMW Championship in a thrilling playoff. Following Johnson is Jon Rahm, whose 66-foot birdie putt in the BMW Championship playoff earned him the second victory of the FedEx Cup playoffs. In third place is Justin Thomas, whose big lead at the end of the regular season put him in great position to challenge for the championship.

Now all that’s left to do for them — and the rest of the field — is win the 2020 Tour Championship.

Here’s everything you need to know about the 2020 PGA Tour Championship, including TV channels, streaming options, tee times, purse, odds and more:

PGA Tour Championship purse

The purse for this year’s PGA Tour Championship is $ 60 million — the same as last year’s, assuming you don’t include the Wyndham Rewards, a $ 10 million purse divvied out to the top 10 golfers at the end of the regular season. This year’s winner’s share will be $ 15 million, matching last year’s total won by Rory McIlroy.

PGA Tour Championship leaderboard

Points are out the window win it comes to the PGA Tour’s final event, but they do have a say in how it’s played out. Because Johnson enters the 2020 Tour Championship with the most points, he begins the event starting at 10 under par. Rahm, with the second-most points, starts at 8 under; Thomas at 7 under, Webb Simpson at 6 under and Collin Morikawa at 5 under. The sixth- through 10-place golfers enter at 4 under; golfers 11 through 15 at 3 under; 16-20 at 2-under, 21-25 at 1-under and 25-30 even.

So it stands to reason that golfers at the top of the leaderboard have a significant advantage to take home the Tour Championship than does, say, Billy Horschel, who enters as the 30th-ranked golfer in the FedEx Cup standings.

Below is the full leaderboard ahead of the Tour Championship, and each golfer’s accompanying stroke advantage:

McIlroy won in 2016 and ’19, while Woods won in 2007 and ’18.
