THEN NEWLY-ENHANCED FEDEXCUP PLAYOFFS continues this week, bringing the 2018-19 PGA TOUR season to a thrilling conclusion for the first time in the month of August. Coverage of the final two events will air exclusively on GOLF Channel and NBC with the BMW Championship and the TOUR Championship.

Following Patrick Reed's victory at THE NORTHERN TRUST, the FedExCup Playoffs have been narrowed to the top-70 players for this week's event, The BMW Championship, being staged at Medinah Country Club (No. 3) outside of Chicago and taking place Thursday-Sunday, Aug. 15-18. Complementing NBC Sports' linear live tournament coverage of the Playoffs, PGA TOUR LIVE coverage on NBC Sports Gold on Thursday and Friday morning will lead into live coverage on GOLF Channel (3-7 p.m. ET). GOLF Channel and NBC will combine to air live weekend coverage from Noon-6 p.m. ET on both Saturday and Sunday (Aug. 17-18).

The top-30 in the standings will advance to East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta the following week (Aug. 22-25) for the TOUR Championship, with a $15 million first-place prize on the line at week's end. PGA TOUR LIVE coverage will precede GOLF Channel's live tournament coverage on Thursday-Friday (1-6 p.m. ET), while GOLF Channel and NBC will combine to air six hours of live coverage on both Saturday-Sunday (Aug. 24-25).
