The FedEx Cup Points Reset and Tour Championship Points

Scotchman in San Diego wanted to know how the FedEx Cup points were reset going into the Tour Championship so that he could conduct a few “what if” scenarios. Playing with a few numbers makes it pretty clear, though. Any of the top five can win by winning the Tour Championship; anyone outside the top five can win if they finish first at the Tour Championship, and the other top players finish unexpectedly low. So here they are; regardless of the number of points players previously had accumulated, the FedEx Cup points are reset going into the Tour Championship as follows:

1 (Tiger Woods) – 2,500
2 (Steve Stricker) – 2,250
3 (Jim Furyk) – 2,000
4 (Zach Johnson) – 1,800
