The PGA Tour season concludes this week at East Lake with a new-look Tour Championship.

As usual, 30 players have qualified for the season-finale but we have a very different format on our hands.

No longer does the top five in the FedEx Cup standings 'control their own destiny', as the person who wins the tournament wins the FedEx Cup...simple as that!

This year, we have a staggered start with FedEx Cup leader Justin Thomas starting at one under par, two clear of second-placed Patrick Cantlay.

World No.1 Brooks Koepka starts at 7 under, The Northern Trust winner Patrick Reed begins at six under and Rory McIlroy, fifth in the standings, will tee off at five under par.

Here's how the entire field will begin the week -

-10 Justin Thomas

-8 Patrick Cantlay

-7 Brooks Koepka

-6 Patrick Reed

-5 Rory McIlroy

-4 Jon Rahm, Matt Kuchar, Xander Schauffele, Webb Simpson, Abraham Ancer

-3 Gary Woodland, Tony Finau, Adam Scott, Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama

-2 Paul Casey, Justin Rose, Brandt Snedeker, Rickie Fowler, Kevin Kisner

-1 Marc Leishman, Tommy Fleetwood, Corey Conners, Sungjae Im, Chez Reavie

Level par: Bryson DeChambeau, Louis Oosthuizen, Charles Howell III, Lucas Glover, Jason Kokrak
