    I don’t hate the idea of having there be one tour championship/Fed-Ex cup champion like any other sport. You win the final you win it all, but I think they should have started the #1 player at even and others at different levels of over par instead. #30 starts at PLUS 10.

      There should be no handicapping of professional tournaments….can you imagine the NFL playoffs with some teams getting 3 points on the board prior to the opening kickoff?

    As you know I said weeks ago this is an improvements but a terrible idea. Im beginning to wonder if it is an inprovement.
    You know my proposal for a great pga tour playoff:
    Play-off!
    (With some byes for the points leaders into the finale). But at aome point everybody gotta :
    Play-off!
    The biggest problem here is that the PGa Tour may no longer give the lowest shooter of the Coke Tour Championship a trophy or even credit; but there still will be one.
    And that guy will be the huge elephant in the room annually.
    How bad at an easy dream job can you be?!
    To be fair, imo the Tour getting the players more money from sponsors seems like nothing to criticize. But it teally has little to do with leadership and everything to do with Tiger and the ever growing list of household names in golfs elite ranks.
