The PGA Tour think it will make the end of season finale more exciting, but it sounds awfully complicated. From next year when the Tour Championship is played before Labor Day holiday it will all depend on the players rankings in the FedEx Cup going into the event. The leading player will begin the tournament on -10,the next four players on -8 through -5, the next 6-10 on -4 regressing by 1stroke every 5 players. Players 26th to 30th begin on level par 10 shots off the pace.
How this will all affect the world ranking points could be significant but the tour think that the consequences will make the final round nerve wracking.
