Did you know the closest the top-ranked play- ers on the PGA Tour come to Birmingham all year is to Atlanta and the Tour Championship? The top 30 players on the FedEx Cup points list will gather at East Lake Golf Club Sept. 22-25 for the nal event of the season and it pres- ents a superb opportunity to watch these top players in person. Ticket prices vary by day, but every adult ticket gets up to four chil- dren, ages 18 and under, in for free with a paid adult. That's a great deal to take junior golfers along to see Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott, Jordan Spieth and many other top names. For many it may be their rst time to see these superstars in the game up close and personal. So, if you have the time, load up the car and head east on I-20 to Atlanta. With just 30 golfers, and no cut, it's a small, intimate eld and the ultimate pressure-cooker for the FedEx Cup and the battle for the $10 million FedEx Cup prize. Also there will be the battle for the $1.485 million rst place check for the Tour Championship itself.

The course is already in excellent condition with the Bermuda greens running fast and true. A lot of the infrastructure is being erected and it will be quite the spectacle, both in person and viewed on TV. And there will be more TV minutes to view as a deal has been announced that, through the increased support of Coca-Cola and Southern The Tour Championship… it's closer than you think Ticket prices vary by day, but every I was fortunate to attend a media event at East Lake on Tuesday and got to play this very ne course.
