Just saw an article (attached below) with a radical changes (possibly) coming to the Tour Championship

Basically in a nut shell FedEx Cup points will not be involved in the final playoff event at East Lake. Instead, the No. 1 player would start the Tour Championship at 10-under par, with scores to par staggered depending on the 30 players' position in the standings.
The winner will be the FedEx Cup champion.

I like this idea as it makes sure the winner of the final event is the Actual Tour Champion instead of a tour champion overall and tour champion event winner.


Some of you will hate this and I eagerly await your responses below

Lousy idea, the current point allocation is sufficient well still paying a dividend for consistency throughout the year, and the playoffs. This works don't screw with it. Wish NASCAR had understood that.

Looks like this format became official earlier this week (for next year). Very interesting!

Tiger -9
JT -9
Finau -9

I'm in no way saying that this new idea is a good one but I think experimentation (especially while the system is young) is a good thing.

Does the current system really have playoff drama?

They have to keep showing me who is going where because the drama isn't out on the course. It's on a spreadsheet.

I'd like a system where perhaps they give stroke benefits in the first couple of legs in the "playoffs" but the final is winner take all.

You don't get to start 3-0 in the superbowl because you had a better record but you do get a first round bye if you have one of the best records.

Hey in thinking about applying this to NASCAR we could start by zzzzzzzzzzzzz…..zzzzzzz..zzzzzz

huh? Oh! sorry - that always happens when I think about NASCAR

I think that the FedEx playoffs shouldn't take into consideration who finished where in the "regular" season. Once the final tournament is played, the best player receives 5 million. During the playoffs, players start at an even playing field and attempt to win the next 5 million. It would allow for drama to unfold during the playoffs and the regular season as well. Now naturally, if one player dominates the regular season, it could warrant that first 5 million dollar purse irrelevant going into the final regular season tournament. But once the playoffs start it's anybody's game.

LOL

Just like, "Let's eat, grandpa!" as opposed to "Lets eat grandpa!"
