• FedExCup: Top 10 in the race

    Justin Thomas at Riviera
    JT is the one to beat

    Justin Thomas is the man with the biggest advantage heading to East Lake for the Tour Championship and the $15 million.

    Thomas starts the week at -10, a two-shot lead over fellow American Patrick Cantlay.

    Here’s the 10 best heading into the Tour Championship:

    1. JUSTIN THOMAS -10 4th start
    The 2017 FedExCup champ seeking to join Tiger Woods as only two-time winners.
    2. PATRICK CANTLAY -8 3rd start
    Never been a factor at East Lake but he’s never been in this sort of form, either.
    3. BROOKS KOEPKA -7 4th start
    Reigning Player of the Year hoping to improve on his T-26 finish at East Lake last year.
    4. PATRICK REED -6 6th start
    East Lake has rarely treated him well; his best finish is T13 and just 5 of his 20 rounds are under par.
    5. RORY McILROY -5 6th start
    A winner and runner-up at East Lake in the past. Looking to add to 2016 FedExCup crown.
    6. JON RAHM -4 3rd start
    Looking to better the T7 and T11 results from his first two trips to East Lake.
    7. MATT KUCHAR -4 9th start
    The two-time winner this season has been a staple at East Lake since 2010 but T10 is his best finish there.
    8. XANDER SCHAUFFELE -4 3rd start
    Won at East Lake in debut in 2017. T7 last season. Likes the place for sure.
    9. WEBB SIMPSON -4 7th start
    Three top-5 finishes at East Lake, but the year he could have won it all … he was 22nd in Atlanta.
    10. ABRAHAM ANCER -4 1st start
    First trip to East Lake for the first Mexican to make the Presidents Cup.
