The Tour Championship (typeset as THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola) was historically the final event of golf's PGA Tour season. Since 2007, it has been the final event of the FedEx Cup, the competition for the first official championship trophy for the PGA Tour season. From 1987 to 1996, several courses hosted the event. Beginning in 1997, the event alternated between Champions Golf Club in Houston, Texas and East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia; since 2004, East Lake has been the event's permanent home. The greens at East Lake were redone with MiniVerde bermuda grass (replacing heat prone bentgrass) in 2009. It is one of the richest tournaments on the tour. - Source: Wikipedia
