Scottie Scheffler has a target on his back at the season-ending Tour Championship, with reigning champion Patrick Cantlay and the rest of the top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings looking to reel in the world No.1. Spurring each of them on is an astounding $18 million payout, as well as ultimate glory at a tournament that rewards the best of the very best. Who will deliver the goods at the FedEx Cup Playoffs finale? Read on as we explain how to watch a 2022 PGA Tour Championship live stream online with or without cable this week, with fans in the US able to watch every session on ESPN+.
Tournament dates: Thursday, August 25 - Sunday, August 28
Start time (Thu & Fri): 1pm ET (local) / 10am PT / 6pm BST / 3am AEST
Venue: East Lake Golf Club, Atlanta, Georgia
Having accumulated the most FedEx Cup points over the course of this season, Masters winner Scheffler starts at 10-under, ahead of BMW Championship winner Cantlay (8-under) heading into Round 1.
Will Zalatoris would have started at 7-under, however, the St. Jude champion had to withdraw from the BMW, and has now pulled out of the Tour Championship with herniated discs in his back. That makes Xander Schauffele (6-under) and Sam Burns (5-under) the closest challengers to Scheffler and Cantlay at East Lake.
Amongst those in the chasing pack are Rory McIlroy and British Open champ Cam Smith (both 4-under); Jon Rahm and US Open winner Matt Fitzpatrick (both 3-under); Jordan Spieth (2-under) and Collin Morikawa (1-under). Five players start at even par, including rookie Sahith Theegala and Adam Scott, who's running hot.
It's golf's ultimate prize outside the majors, so follow our guide as we explain how to watch a PGA Tour Championship live stream online, so that you don't miss a moment.

Golf fans based in the US can watch the 2022 PGA Tour Championship on the Golf Channel and NBC on cable, but it's worth noting that ESPN Plus is the only place to watch extended live coverage of each day's play at East Lake, including featured groups coverage if you're after the full-fat experience.

How to watch PGA Tour Championship 2022 without cable
We've already explained that ESPN Plus is the best option for watching PGA Tour Championship golf without cable, with by far and away the most comprehensive coverage from $9.99 per month, but there are other cable-free options too.
Peacock TV is live streaming everything that's on NBC. Peacock costs $4.99 a month for an ad-supported version of the service that also offers live coverage of every big WWE event, EPL soccer, the NFL, plus plenty more live sports. You also have the option of paying $10 a month for commercial-free coverage.
Another strong option is FuboTV, a fully featured OTT streamer that includes both the Golf Channel and NBC in select markets, as well as more than 100 more channels, and starts from $69.99 a month.
Better still, there's a FREE 7-day FuboTV trial on offer so you can try before you buy - and cancel if you're not a fan.
One more decent option is Sling TV, which is cheaper but less comprehensive. It includes the Golf Channel in its $11 per month Sports Extra add-on, which you can purchase on top of its Sling Blue package, which includes NBC in select markets. The usual cost is $35 a month, but if you're new to the service you can get your first month for half price.
