Orlando, Fl--The PGA Tour revamped its FedEx Cup race Tuesday for the third straight year of its existence, this one geared at making sure that
the winner of the $10 million prize is decided at the Tour
Points that previously had been reset at the start of the four-tournament playoffs will not be changed until the Tour Championship, meaning the top performers should have the best chance to win the FedEx Cup, but all 30 players who qualify for the final event will have a mathematical chance to win.
Vijay Singh won the first two playoff events this year, giving him such a commanding lead that he only needed to finish four rounds at East Lake to capture the FedEx Cup.
PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said the Tour Championship at East Lake would be played Sept. 24-27, providing a one-week break after the first three playoff events.
