The PGA Tour has tweaked the playoff format yet again—and this time it looks to me as though they’re getting closer to the mark.
With Fedex Cup 3.0, the points will be reset once the 30 player Tour Championship field is determined. The leader gets 2,500 points and the 30th has 205. That ensures that every player in the final 30 man field has a chance to win the $10 million prize. That doesn’t mean it’s likely—just possible. Anyone outside top ten who wants to get the big check is going to need both a win, and the collapse of several leaders.
Still, it’s getting better.
