The New PGA

Pro golf unveils the FedExCup, a format that will crown a Tour champion with a four-tournament playoff
Jeff Williams
From the Print Edition:
Sopranos, Mar/Apr 2007

(continued from page 1)

The No. 1 seed will get 100,000 points to start, the No. 2, 99,000, etc. There will be 500-point drops through No. 5, 250-point drops from 6 to 10, 150-point drops from 11 to 30 and 75-point drops thereafter. The winner of each playoff event will get 9,000 points; second, 5,400; third, 3,400, and so forth. Only 120 players will advance to the second playoff, 70 players to the third and 30 players to the Tour Championship, where the point awards will be slightly higher. It's possible that the winner of the Tour Championship and the winner of the FedExCup will be different players.
