PGA Tour Tweaks Playoffs Points

THE PGA TOUR ANNOUNCED A CHANGE to the points awarded during the FedEx Cup Playoffs. PGATour.com reported:
Beginning in 2015, The Barclays, Deutsche Bank Championship, BMW Championship and TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola will award 2,000 points for a victory (down from 2,500) with all other places being reduced by the same proportion. The intent, Finchem said, is to place a greater emphasis on season-long excellence while still maintaining the element of volatility and movement throughout the Playoffs. 
"Every year since the FedExCup was introduced in 2007, we have reviewed the points structure with the Player Advisory Council and four Player Directors who sit on the Policy Board," Finchem said. 
"We believe this slight modification will add greater significance to players having an outstanding season leading into the Playoffs, while still allowing for the excitement of volatility and movement during the Playoffs, particularly as players vie to make the final 30 for the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola."
