FedEx Cup End Anticlimactic

I’m happy for Vijay Singh—one of my favorite players—but the final leg of the FedEx Cup is going to be a bit of a snooze. All Vijay has to do to win is make the cut.

It’s not what the Tour had in mind, surely. The whole idea of the playoff was to maintain some interest in competitive golf during the first few weeks of the college and pro football seasons. And now, from a competitive point of view, I can think of absolutely no reason to watch.

Not to be pessimistic, but I predict that the FedEx Cup series will continue to be a dud for many years to come.

  1. Blogger, do I need to send you some Cup stuff from our company store?  We have to get you turned around on this thing.

    Actually I feel pretty much the same way.  I couldn’t be happier for Vijay, who is just playing great these days, and give me hope for my own improvement.  But the Cup needs to change formats so there is some reason to be watching Sunday, perhaps more of a points race and then work someway into a bracketed match play, or something.

  2. I don’t think the US PGA tour would go for matchplay.  I think the American players don’t like matchplay all that much.  If they wanted to make it more of a ‘race’ then they would re-set everyone’s points to zero at the start of the playoffs and maybe any player who plays all four events gets a certain amount of bonus points added in during the Tour Championship.

    I wish the networks would stop projecting Fed Ex cup points during the first round of the tournament as in “if the tournament ended today this is how it would look.”  That’s pretty stupid and I can’t believe anyone watching the first round of a playoff event would even care about projected fed ex cup points.

    We can only hope that the Ryder Cup didn’t take too much out of several key players. I think it would be great to see Anthony Kim, Sergio Garcia, Kenny Perry, Phil Mickelson, Camilo Villegas, Hunter Mahan, Boo Weekley and Vijay Singh all battling for the Tour Championship title.

    Thanx-A-Lot, Frank
