Xander Schauffele will be hoping to lift his second Tour Championship title at the East Lake Golf Club this week (4-7 September).
The American golfer won this tournament in 2017 after he birdied the 72nd hole to win by one stroke over Justin Thomas.
As a result, Schauffele became the first rookie ever to win the Tour Championship and his win also marked the first time a rookie has won any FedEx Cup playoff event.

The win also moved Schauffele to third place in the final FedEx Cup standings, bettering the previous best mark by a rookie held by his compatriot Jordan Spieth by four positions.
Schauffele had an opportunity to defend his title in the following year after qualifying through the BMW Championship 
The 26-year-old finished T7 at the 2018 Tour Championship, while placing 15th in the season-long FedEx Cup.
Schauffele then finished out the season with a solo second place at the 2019 Tour Championship.
Therefore this placed the San Diego-born golfer in a solo second position in the 2019 FedEx Cup – his highest finish to date.

The 2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions winner qualified for this year's tournament after securing his place in the FedEx Cup top 30 as number 14.
Schauffele says he is feeling positive coming into the Tour Tournament as he looks to win the competition for the second time. 
“I was sort of frustrated with my putting. I have used this time to reboot," Schauffele said. 
"And it was nice to set the clubs down for six or seven weeks and totally flush my memory of everything. I feel like that was a positive for me personally.”
The 2020 Tour Championship winner will get $15 million and the runner-up is set to receive $5 million.
