It all comes down to East Lake.

Thirty players head to Atlanta for this week's Tour Championship and the finale of the 2016-17 season. Five players — Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Marc Leishman and Jon Rahm — are guaranteed to win the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus if they win the event. Every player in the 30-man field has a chance to win the FedEx Cup, yet the scenarios to win become more of a long shot the farther you trickle down the list.

Rory McIlroy won the Tour Championship in a playoff last year over Kevin Chappell and Ryan Moore. That also vaulted McIlroy to the FedEx Cup title and the $10 million bonus. McIlroy, however, didn't qualify for this year's Tour Championship, which means the FedEx Cup will have to wait at least another year for its first-ever back-to-back winner.

The schedule and tee times for the week are below.
