    Six Things To Know
    • With six birdies in his first seven holes, Tiger Woods shot the low round of the day, a 5-under 65, to take a three-stroke lead into the final round in search of his 80th PGA TOUR victory and first since the 2013 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational
    • Following bogeys on his first two holes, Justin Rose (T2) rallied to card a 2-under 68 and is currently projected to win the FedExCup with Tiger Woods projected No. 2
    • Woods’ third-round 65 was his fifth consecutive round in the 60s, which stands as his longest streak of the season. It is his best since a streak of six rounds in 2013 (R1/ THE NORTHERN TRUST – R2/Dell Technologies Championship)
    • Rory McIlroy shot a 4-under 66 to move into a tie for second with Rose. When he won the TOUR Championship in 2016, McIlroy carded rounds of 66-64 on the weekend
    • Hideki Matsuyama’s second-round remains the only bogey-free round through three rounds
    • Bryson DeChambeau, the FedExCup standings leader entering this week, improved by nine strokes in the third round, rebounding from a 75 on Friday with a 4-under 66 to improve to T21
    Third-Round Lead Notes
    53/57     Tiger Woods’ record when holding at least a share of the 54-hole lead on the PGA TOUR, including a 42-2 record when holding the outright lead
    19/31     54-hole leaders who have gone on to win the TOUR Championship (most recently Jordan Spieth/2015)
    28/46     Third-round leaders/co-leaders to win on PGA TOUR in 2017-18 (most recently Bryson DeChambeau/THE NORTHERN TRUST)
    FedExCup Playoffs and the TOUR Championship
    • The TOUR Championship is the last of four events of the FedExCup Playoffs and the finale to the PGA TOUR season for the 12th consecutive season since the FedExCup Playoffs were introduced in 2007.
    • The top-125 players on the final PGA TOUR Regular Season FedExCup points list (following the Wyndham Championship) qualified for THE NORTHERN TRUST (won by Bryson DeChambeau).
    • The top-100 players on the FedExCup points list following THE NORTHERN TRUST qualified for the Dell Technologies Championship (won by Bryson DeChambeau).
    • The top-70 players on the FedExCup points list after the Dell Technologies Championship advanced to the BMW Championship (won by Keegan Bradley).
    • The top-30 players following the BMW Championship qualified for the TOUR Championship. Prior to the start of the TOUR Championship, a “points reset” took place, giving all players in the field a mathematical opportunity to win the FedExCup title. Any of the top-five players in the standings will claim the FedExCup with a victory at East Lake.
    The top-five players in the FedExCup standings entering the TOUR Championship will win the FedExCup title should they go on to victory at East Lake.

    First timers at the TOUR Championship
    Six players are making their first appearance at the TOUR Championship this week, including Bryson DeChambeau, No. 1 in the FedExCup. He is joined by Cameron Smith (10), Francesco Molinari (13), Tommy Fleetwood (19), Aaron Wise (21) and Patton Kizzire (30). With a victory, they would join Chad Campbell (2003), Bart Bryant (2005), Bill Haas (2011), Henrik Stenson (2013) and Xander Schauffele (2017) as players to win the TOUR Championship in their first appearance (not including Tom Watson’s win at the first TOUR Championship in 1987).
    Rookies in the FedExCup Playoffs
    Eight PGA TOUR rookies advanced to the FedExCup Playoffs to earn their first start at THE NORTHERN TRUST, the first of four Playoffs events. Only Aaron Wise was successful in reaching the TOUR Championship. Wise won his first PGA TOUR title at the AT&T Byron Nelson, before missing the cut in six of his next seven starts (T6/World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational) to enter the Playoffs No. 27 in the FedExCup standings. Wise starts the TOUR Championship at No. 21 in the FedExCup. Here’s a look at his progress through the Playoffs:

    Additional Player Notes
    Kyle Stanley joined the top five on the leaderboard (T4) following a 3-under 67. Currently projected 13th in the FedExCup, Stanley has not finished higher than 24th (2017) in the final standings.
    Tony Finau (T6) improved his standing in round three with a 3-under 67. A solo-second finish Sunday would offer Finau a chance at winning the FedExCup, making him the first player to win the season-long title without a victory.
    Entering the week at No. 4 in the FedExCup standings, Dustin Johnson birdied four of his last six holes to shoot a 3-under 67 and move into a tie for ninth.
    Bryson DeChambeau, who won the first two Playoffs events and entered the TOUR Championship in the No. 1 position, sits T21 after rebounding in round three with a 4-under 66, including eagles on hole Nos. 6 and 17.
    Defending FedExCup champion Justin Thomas (T9) carded an even-par 70 and is currently projected to finish No. 6 in the final standings.
    There are four past FedExCup champions (Tiger Woods, Billy Horschel, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas) at East Lake this year. Thomas, McIlroy and Horschel can join Tiger Woods (2007, 2009) as the only two-time winners of the FedExCup.
