FedUpCup

PGA Tour players are thrilled about the FedExCup. Absolutely, positively, NOT.

In an analysis piece, AP golf writer Doug Ferguson wrote:

“The only people talking about the FedExCup are employees in Memphis, Tenn., and Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Of course, that doesn't include the shameless plugs on TV such as, ‘Oooh, that putt could cost him FedExCup points.’”

Ferguson quoted some players:

“I'm tired of listening to it, you know?”
-- Vijay Singh

“That's exciting.”
-- Geoff Ogilvy's response laced with sarcasm after being told his second-place finish in the Accenture Match Play Championship was worth 2,835 FedExCup points.

Ferguson also said the PGA Tour reached an all-time low when Tiger Woods was introduced at a press conference at last week's match play championship as No. 8 in the FedExCup standings rather than the man gunning for his eighth consecutive title.

(Note: For those tallying, this post is worth 1,759 FedUpCup points.)
