The 2012 FedEx Cup comes to a conclusion this weekend in Atlanta.

The 2012 FedEx Cup chase will come to an end this weekend, when golfers tee off in Atlanta for the TOUR Championship, where Rory McIlroy will look to hang onto his FedEx Cup points lead and win the FedEx Cup.

McIlroy, the current FedEx Cup points leader, controls his own destiny much like a handful of other golfers. Even a top-five finish will give McIlroy an excellent chance to clinch the FedEx Cup.

It's not a foregone conclusion that McIlroy will win, though. Tiger Woods, Nick Watney, Phil Mickelson and Brandt Snedeker also control their own destinies. A win by any of those golfers at the TOUR Championship will clinch the FedEx Cup for them, regardless of McIlroy's finish.

Live televised coverage of The TOUR Championship will begin Thursday, at 1 p.m. ET on the Golf Channel, and will last until 6 p.m. Both the Golf Channel and NBC will offer televised coverage on Saturday and Sunday.
