The 30 participants for this year's Tour Championship have been decided. Advancing to East Lake has plenty of perks, starting with the opportunity to compete for the FedEx Cup's $10 million first prize, in addition to the Tour Championship's $1.44 million winner's check.

The top five players in the FedEx Cup standings can all clinch the Cup by winning at East Lake.

The Tour Championship begins Sept. 20.
