Tour Championship: Ways to watch FedExCup finale on Sky Sports

While the victor of the new version Tour Championship will get credit with a tournament victory, the best way to think of this is that it's not a tournament at all but really a conclusion to the season.

Players will be seeded based on points with the leader starting the event at 10-under par; the next four players at 8-under through 5-under; the remaining players will be paired in groups of five to regress from 4-under for Nos.

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.

For a three-year stretch, the FedEx Cup Playoffs were a stage where stars shined.

"Compared to the current system, the beauty here is in the simplicity", Monahan said Tuesday.

PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said Tuesday the changes were created to make the FedEx Cup finale easier for fans to understand and to avoid the potential for separate winners of the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup. The fans? Well, you can bank on them tuning in more to see who that money may be going to, not how much.


The 25-year-old revealed he suffered the injury during the delayed final round of the BMW Championship on September 10, when a closing 68 left him in a tie for 12th. The next golfer in the standings will begin at 8-under, the player in the third spot would be 7-under, and so on.

This goes on until the player at 30th starts on even par.

Also, Wyndham is kicking in $10 million to the top finishers in the regular season, which concludes at the Wyndham Championship. "With two big weeks coming up, it's kind of more precautionary than anything".

The season-ending Tour Championship has been dramatically adjusted. It's just that pros at this level don't often play in net tournaments. The first playoff event at the Northern Trust will feature 125 players with a cut down to the top 70 for the BMW Championship.

If he fails, he would stand alongside Rory McIlroy (2012) and Jason Day (2015) as winners of two of the first three playoffs events without taking the big prize. The top-10 regular-season points leaders through the closing event at the Wyndham in Greensboro, N.C., will share that amount in a bonus pool.

Despite earning nearly $5 million from 19 starts, Day feels his poor results at the majors - failing to finish inside the top-15 at all four of golf's biggest events - influenced his negative assessment. The existing FedEx Cup bonus pool will be enhanced by $25 million to $60 million, with the victor receiving $15 million, up from $10 million which has been in place since 2007.
