If you’re planning on attending the PGA Tour Championship this week at Atlanta’s East Lake Golf Club, here are a few things to be aware of:

Calamity Jane to become the official trophy of the TOUR Championship

Since 2005, the FedEx Cup tournament presented each champion with a replica version of the Bobby Jones’ putter he used to win the Grand Slam, Calamity Jane.

Previously just a gift to champions, Calamity Jane will become the official trophy of the Tour Championship to honor Jones and his legacy.

Partnership with Uber

The Tour Championship partnered with Uber for this year’s FedEx Cup finale event. 

Attendees who choose to take Uber to the event this week will enter the tournament grounds through the Uber Gate.

The Uber Gate is located near the 13th fairway and the 17th green and 18th tee.

“We’re very excited to partner with Uber and provide fans easy access to this year’s Tour Championship,” Tour Championship Tournament director Martin Stephenson said in a statement. “The Uber Gate and new Arby’s rideshare lounge driven by Uber allows fans to arrive safely and be dropped right in the heart of the back nine.”

Fans are also able to experience the new Arby’s rideshare lounge driven by Uber which will have concessions, comfortable seating and charging stations. 

Henri’s Bakery to bake unique treats to tournament week

The Tour Championship partnered with Henri’s Bakery to craft unique baked goods that will be available during tournament week.

Henri’s special desserts include shortbread shamrock cookies as a nod to Jones who was born on St. Patrick’s Day in 1902 and notoriously kept a shamrock charm on his pocket watch. 

Henri’s special baked goods and the shamrock cookies will only be available during tournament week.

Atlanta History Center partners with the Tour Championship

Fans can experience a new main entrance in 2017 to the Atlanta History Center that reflect Jones’ connection to Atlanta and golf.
