2010 champion: Jim Furyk (8-under-par 272, one shot ahead of Luke Donald). Furyk is not at East Lake, standing 36th on the points list after last week's BMW Championship.
FedEx Cup: Points are reset this week to give everyone a mathematical chance of winning the FedEx Cup. A win by any of the top five — Webb Simpson, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Luke Donald or Matt Kuchar — would lock up the title without outside help. A $10 million annuity from the FedEx bonus pool awaits the champion.
