The richest payday in PGA Tour history has arrived. With $58 million for a 30-way split, 29 golfers (not including the injured Will Xalatores) will battle it out for the $18 million first prize at East Lake over the last 18 holes of the 2022 Tour Championship. Second place ($6.5 million) and third place ($5 million) aren’t too bad either, but the top of the leaderboard only looks at one place.
The big question on Sunday is whether Scotty Scheffler, who entered East Lake by two strokes and saw him swell to just five to lead by one at the end of Saturday’s game, can hold onto his advantage now that the third round is complete. Schaeffler (-23) hit Birdie on four of his last six holes in the third round Sunday morning to push his lead to six on the entire court. Behind him, Xander Shaveli and Rory McIlroy (-17) tied for second to enter the final. McIlroy pulled off three of his last six holes in the third round to score 63, one shot from the lowest score of the week, while Shaveli went without a birdie on his back nine, scoring 2 on 70 for a dip and pressure off Scheffler.
As Round 4 begins in Atlanta, let’s take a look at the key tee times for the top of the leaderboard. The full set of tee times can be found in the live updates below. All times are oriental
