Its been just a few years since the FedEx Cup came into reality and the golf world was greeted with a playoff system. What was announced in 2005, and first took shape in 2007 has evolved into a points race all leading to the end of the season and a champion named.
The “Playoffs” are made up of four tournaments.
The Barclays – The top 125 after last week.
Deutsche Bank Championship – The Top 100 after the Barclays
The BMW Championship – The Top 70 after the Deutsche Bank
The Tour Championship – Top 30 after the BMW
After the BMW Championship, the top 30 move on to the “finals” and points are reset. The #1 player has 2500 points, the #2 player has 2250 points, all the way down to the #30 player who is given 210 points. By resetting the points, it ensures that any of the top 30 players has a mathematical chance of winning the FedEx Cup. This also gives the advantage to the top seeds (the top 5) by giving them a “Win and you win” situation.
