Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Justin Thomas is the favorite to win the 2019 Tour Championship and claim the 2019 FedExCup after winning the BMW Championship. Here is how to watch this weekend's season-ending tournament and the other best bets.

The winner of the 30-player Tour Championship will be the FedExCup champion after the PGA Tour revamped its scoring system for this season. Masters champion Tiger Woods has been eliminated from the field after a 42nd place finish in the BMW Championship. Woods was the 2018 Tour Championship winner, while Justin Rose finished No. 1 in the 2018 FedExCup standings.
