How Tiger Woods can win the 2018 FedEx Cup

How Tiger Woods can win the 2018 FedEx Cup

"Fans are very familiar with golf leaderboards in relation to par, so they will have a clear understanding of the impact every shot makes during the final run for the FedEx Cup, ultimately leading to a singular champion without conflicting storylines".

The adjustments coincide with the Tour's significant changes to the schedule, which now will see the season conclude before Labor Day to escape the looming shadows of the NFL, MLB and college football.

This is all set to change utterly following an announcement today by the PGA Tour which is to be implemented for the 2019 season.

For the most part, Billy Horschel, who won the FedEx Cup after he won the Tour Championship in 2014 and some top-ranked players stumbled, likes the changes.

One of the concerns is essentially handicapping the field for the FedEx Cup finale at East Lake. 26-30 at even par. Victor of the tournament wins the whole deal, including a newly jacked-up $15 million prize.

"We have no doubt it will create a compelling, dramatic conclusion for the TOUR's ultimate prize", Monahan said. "As play moves on through the week, we're just looking at a scoreboard".

Bryson DeChambeau hits his tee shot on the 6th hole during the final round of the Dell Technologies Championship golf tournament at TPC of Boston in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S., September 3, 2018.

"It's never going to be ideal", said Thomas, who previous year won the FedExCup while Xander Schauffele won The Tour Championship. In 17 starts this season, he has two second-place finishes and six top-10s. The other was in 2009, when Phil Mickelson won the tournament and Tiger Woods won the FedEx Cup.

While most of the tour players were outwardly supportive of the idea - and why not when the purse is being goosed to $60 million from $25 and the victor now pockets $15 million - behind the scenes some were a little skeptical of the new format and the advantage being given.

"Win The Tour Championship and you are the FedExCup Cup champion".

The Tour also announced an attempt to put more spice in the regular season by launching the $10 million "Wyndham Rewards Top 10". Both events will award quadruple points compared to regular-season events.

The 16-member Player Advisory Council and four player-directors were then instrumental in helping the TOUR officials shape the end result, with a format that was collectively agreed on. Tiger Woods, now 20th in the FedEx Cup standings, would start the tournament eight shots behind at 2-under par.

This week, the player with the smallest chance of winning the FedEx Cup is Patton Kizzire because as the 30th-ranked player, he starts the week with the fewest points.
