Tiger Woods prepares for first Tour Championship in five years

  • While Woods has yet to taste a tournament victory this year Monahan said the former world number one had nevertheless had a huge impact boosting television ratings and indirectly raising the profile of other players on tour

DeChambeau, a three-time victor this season, is delighted to be making his Tour Championship debut.

"I think the season itself has been incredible", he said.

For Woods to win a third FedEx Cup (he is 20th in the standings), he will need to first win the Tour Championship and then have several things happen.

"I seem to have got most of those things going well, but there's always something missing". "I haven't been here in quite some time and it's great to have accomplished one of the goals I set out at the start of the year".

"It's an honour to be here at East Lake for my first Tour Championship".

'Fans are very familiar with golf leaderboards in relation to par, so they will have a clear understanding of the impact every shot makes during the final run for the FedEx Cup, ultimately leading to a singular champion without conflicting storylines'.

Another tournament, another share of the first-round lead for Tiger Woods. This year, Dustin Johnson had the most points in the regular season by 83 points over Thomas.

Woods is still searching for that elusive 80th PGA Tour victory and his last win in the FedExCup Playoffs was at the 2009 BMW Championship.

Smith takes confidence from knowing East Lake has produced winners who lack potent distance from the tee, including Jordan Spieth (2015), Billy Horschel (2014) and Brandt Snedeker (2012).

"What I've missed most about playing here is that, in order to get into this event, I would have earned my way in here in being part of the top 30 most consistent players of the year and the best players of the year", he said. Still, a win, or at least a good performance at the Tour Championship, would have potentially large significance going forward.

Woods feels East Lake suits him perfectly - he owns the 72-hole scoring record (257) and the event's largest winning margin (eight strokes).

Among those events where Woods threatened the leaderboards on the back nine on Sunday include the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Quicken Loans National, as well as majors The Open and US PGA Championship. He had six finishes in the top 10.

Fans were treated at the 2016 edition in Melbourne when superstar Rickie Fowler represented Team USA alongside then reigning US PGA Championship victor Jimmy Walker, while this year's American team will feature world No.27 Kyle Stanley and No.32 Matt Kuchar.

Now, it's about putting all aspects of his game together over a four-day stretch - or even a three-day stretch at next week's Ryder Cup in France. SportsLine's model says Thomas comes up short this week at East Lake.

Monahan said the victor of the FedEx Cup next year would make upward of $27 million, and he expected comprehensive player earnings to increase 12 percent, or more than $500 million. On five under after the first-round 65 of the Tour Championship, the 14-time major-winner is alongside Rickie Fowler, another star in the U.S. team who will descend on Paris looking for their first victory on European soil in 25 years.
