A Measure of Success for the FedEx Cup

The New York Times says that there’s a measure of success for the FedEx Cup this year, especially in light of last year’s event where Vijay Singh was presented the trophy with the event still in progress:

That golf is even being debated this late in September is another measure of the success of the playoffs. With the air — and airtime — filled with footballs and United States Open tennis and late-season baseball, golf has grabbed a fair portion of attention.

Final-round television ratings were up for each of the first three events: the Barclays on CBS scored an overnight household rating/share of 3.7/8 percent, up 106 percent from 1.8/4 in 2008 and 76 percent from a 2.1/5 in 2007; the Deutsche Bank Championship drew a 2.4/6 overnight rating on NBC, up 60 percent from a 1.5/3 last year, but down 40 percent from a 4.0/9 in ’07.
