ATLANTA — Where’s the beef? At the end of the FedExCup Playoffs rainbow, there’s an appetizing prospect on the table for five guys at the PGA Tour’s season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.
Win, and you grab hold of the FedExCup and haul in a $10 million bonus.
No matter what anyone else does, if Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Marc Leishman or Jon Rahm win, the silver hardware, the $10 million bonus and the $1.575 million winner’s paycheck is theirs.
Here’s a look at the top five.
PGA Tour career: 126 starts, 51 top-10 finishes. Among his 11 Tour titles are the 2015 Tour Championship, 2015 Masters, 2015 U.S. Open and 2017 British Open.
Season: 22 events, 11 top-10s. Wins in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Travelers Championship and British Open.
FedExCup résumé: Finished seventh in 2013, 15th in 2014, won in 2015 and finished sixth in 2016. His lone victory in the playoffs came in the 2015 Tour Championship.

He’s had a stellar year despite a balky putter. On the strength of his iron play and driving, he added to his title haul with three wins, including his third major championship, the British Open, where he went birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie-par on his final five holes to claim the Claret Jug. He’s in fine form, finishing 2-2-T7 in the first three Playoff events.
PGA Tour career: 93 starts, 26 top-10s. Six wins, including the last two editions of the CIMB Classic and the 2017 PGA Championship.
Season: 24 events, 11 top-10s. Wins in the CIMB Classic, SBS Tournament of Champions, Sony Open, PGA Championship and Dell Technologies Championship.
