Tour Championship Leaderboard: Four Golfers Under Par Early

While most of the big names -- Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson -- are still in the clubhouse, play is underway at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

The field has been cut down significantly since the FedEx Cup playoffs began, as the top 30 golfers in the world will tee off in the final tournament of the 2012 season, which will decide the FedEx Cup.

The course has been unforgiving early, as only 4 of the first 22 golfers to hit the links are currently under are par.

All four -- Bo Van Pelt, Robert Garrigus, Scott Piercy, Ryan Moore -- are at -2, with Piercy and Moore currently through nine holes and Van Pelt and Garrigus through four.

That's good news for the PGA, since it means the big names competing for the Cup will have ample opportunities to get ahead of the field early.
