The PGA Tour season reaches a climax at this week's Tour Championship, where all the players in the field still have a mathematical chance of winning the FedExCup and its $10m jackpot.
Only the leading 30 players in the season-long FedExCup standings get to feature in the finale at East Lake, with defending champion Rory McIlroy and last year's Open winner Henrik Stenson among those to miss out.
Jordan Spieth tops the standings ahead of PGA champion Justin Thomas, with world No 1 Dustin Johnson, last week's BMW Championship winner Marc Leishman and Jon Rahm completing the top five.
All five of those players are guaranteed the FedExCup title with a victory this week, while a win from outside that quintet opens up a huge range of scenarios for who claims the big-money bonus.
Last week's BMW Championship runner-up Rickie Fowler is the only player outside the top five who can win the FedExCup without a victory this week, although he would need to claim second spot and require a number of results to go in his favour.
Should none of the top three in the standings post a top-three finish in Atlanta, then Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Rose and Brooks Koepka could make a late challenge for the season-long title with a win.
Matsuyama would need Spieth and Thomas to finish outside the top two while Rose, off the back of his share of second in Chicago, would need Spieth to miss a podium place and Johnson to end tied-second or worse.
US Open champion Koepka requires a second win of the season, Spieth to end worse than a three-way tie for third, Thomas outside of the top three and Johnson not to finish runner-up.
Paul Casey comes in to the week in 10th spot, with all those down as low as Kevin Kisner in 18th position requiring a victory and the scenarios of those in the top five to work in their favour.
The points have been reset in the FedExCup standings ahead of this week's event, where there's 2,000 points up for grabs for the winner, 1,200 for the runner-up and points available for all 30 players involved.
If there's a tie in the FedExCup standings at the end of the Tour Championship, then a sudden-death play-off will decide the winner of the financial bonus.
