About the author

Tom Edrington

Tom Edrington spent the first 10 years of his misguided youth as a sports writer for the Tampa Tribune. His career brought him face to face with many of sports greatest stars -- Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Muhammad Ali, Don Shula, countless Hall of Fame NFL stars, more PGA Tour players than he can count. In 1980 he was honored by the Golf Writers Association of America for writing the best news story that year, his coverage of Jack Nicklaus' U.S. Open victory at Baltusrol. Today, 36 years later, golf is still a great part of his life, thanks to competitive playing days and the wonderful people he has met on this fabulous journey.

    They should all start even Steven.

    As you mentioned the winner of the regular season points alone gets a fat 2$mill. And others near the top are rewarded handsomely as well.

    I understand byes for the top of the top but otherwise the fed ex cup will never be satisfying until it ends with a true playoff.

    The points system has to go. The quadruple points silly points season is not entertaining. The last round at East Lake has gotten more clear, albeit flawed beyond belief, but the first two rounds are still confusing with silly points.

    Again playoff has a meaning. It means you play off. If the tour can ever finally get that, that would be nice.

    Keep in mind no one is at risk of losing their job in the playoffs. Everyone is safe. So it’s ok to start even Steven.

    The solution is so simple: aside from a few byes — which must still compete — players should have to finish in the top 70 to move on to round 2. And in round 2 they must finish in the top 30 to move on to the finale.

    Top 3 get byes to East Lake and the next 3 get byes to the second round.

    But once we are at East lake everyone starts even Steven and may the best man win.

        Not sure it’s fed ex creating all
        These silly iterations but I always say it’s up to fed Ed to fix this already.
