FEDEX CUP, MEET THE TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP. TOUR Championship, meet the FedEx Cup. You two need each other. Badly. Otherwise we’re going to have to change Yogi Berra’s famous saying from “It ain’t over till it’s over” to “It’s over before it’s over.”
That’s exactly the way the FedEx Cup Playoffs ended. All Vijay Singh had to do was show up. Except for dividing up the loot, the TOUR Championship didn’t matter.
It’s like awarding the Super Bowl trophy to one of the conference champions. It would turn the Super Bowl into the Pro Bowl. I’m not a huge football fan, but I know that wouldn’t be good.
As Robert mentioned in a recent comment at this blog, perhaps a match-play format in the TOUR Championship is the way to go. Play the three stroke-play events to whittle the field to 32. Then the winner of the TOUR Championship takes home all the marbles.
I’m just throwing out ideas. Oh yeah. Nice win, Spiderman.
