The 2018 Tour Championship golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from September 20-23, 2018, at the East Lake Golf Club located in Atlanta, Georgia. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs this week for the PGA golfers at the 2018 Tour Championship.

The 2018 Tour Championship is the fourth and last of the four FedEx Cup Playoff tournaments and is the last event for the 2018 PGA season. The tournament dates back to 1987, and it has been part of the FedEx Cup Playoffs since the playoffs started in 2007. 

Since it has been part of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, no player has won this event more than once. Tiger Woods (2007), Jim Furyk (2010), Bill Haas (2011),  Brandt Snedeker (2012), Henrik Stenson (2013), Billy Horschel (2014), Jordan Spieth (2015) and Rory McIlroy (2016) have all won this event and also won the FedEx Cup and rich $10 million bonus.

Only the top 30 players in Fedex Cup points after the BMW Championship are eligible to play in the 2018 Tour Championship. Making the Tour Championship is very lucrative for all 30 players.

The player who finishes in 30th place in the Tour Championship will earn $145,000 plus he will also get the 30th place FedEx Cup bonus of $175,000 for a total of $32,000. Each spot above that will pay even more for each player (see below to see how much the winner will earn).

Any player who comes into the Tour Championship ranked 1st thru 5th can control their own destiny because any player ranked 1-5 will win the 2018 FedEx Cup if they win the Tour Championship.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2018 Tour Championship is $9 million. That's up 2.9% over the $8.75 million that was up for grabs in this FedEx Cup Playoff PGA Tour event last year.
