The Tour Championship 2012 Preview: Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods Vie For FedEx Cup

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy headline The Tour Championship, the FedEx Cup's final leg, which gets under way this Thursday in Atlanta.

The quest for the FedEx Cup concludes this weekend with The Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Ga., where the two top points leaders, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, will be the featured duo beginning Thursday.

Woods and McIlroy will be the last pair to begin their first round, teeing off at 1:55 p.m. ET on Thursday. Nick Watney and Phil Mickelson, sitting third and fourth, respectively, in the FedEx Cup standings, tee off just before the final duo at 1:45 p.m. ET.

The full list of tee times for the remaining 30 participants in the FedEx Cup is available here.

Hunter Mahan, a Texas resident, currently sits 23rd in the points standings and will begin his first round at 12:05 p.m. ET with Justin Rose. Mahan lost The Tour Championship last year in a playoff to American Bill Haas, who won the event and the FedEx Cup with a final score of 8-under par.
