Crazed Statistician Highjacks CBS Golf Coverage

I like the new high-tech PGA Tour scoreboards as shown alongside Sergio Garcia in the above photo. I had read about them but didn't see them live until I attended the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro a week ago. They add a nice dimension to the tournament experience.
As for the crazed statistician, did anyone else wonder why CBS considered it necessary to display the projected FedEx Cup rankings for seemingly every stroke played in the final round of The Barclays?
(Birdie, 19th. Par, 85th. Bogey, Nationwide Tour.)
Look, I like the idea. I just don't need to see it on every putt.
