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.
