Who can win the Fedex Cup? Thanks to Tiger and Phil each taking a week off during the FedEx Cup “Playoff,” the event is not quite a lock. From what I can gather—and not being a Tour mathematician—here’s how it seems to break down:
Tiger, of course, signs the paperwork for the annuity with a win. The same goes for Steve Stricker.
Phil signs the paperwork if he wins at East Lake, and Tiger finishes with a tie for second or worse.
Rory Sabbatini and K.J. Choi sign if they win, and Tiger finishes out of the top 15. And that’s not going to happen.
If none of the above win at East Lake, Tiger apparently could finish last and still win whole shebang.
No one else apparently has a chance.
It will be interesting to see if any of the snowballs in hell drop out of the event this weekend.
