BEING average could pay off big time for Kevin Kisner. The world No.32 has finished higher than ninth just once since January, yet his consistency – 21 made cuts from 25 tournaments – has already netted him almost $3.3 million and it’ll pay off again for him this weekend. Even if he finishes dead last at the Tour Championship, he’ll pocket more than $130,000 in prizemoney, as well as a $175,000 FedEx Cup bonus. Not bad at all. DEFENDING champion Jordan Spieth’s solid but unspectacular form over the last two months has made his quest to become the first back-to-back FedEx Cup winner that much harder. Some errant shots at Crooked Stick during the BMW Championship saw him finish a disappointing ninth, leaving him in seventh place in the Cup standings and meaning he’ll be relying on the top five having weekends to forget if he’s to win a second season-ending title. COULD next year’s FedEx Cup be the last as we know it? FedEx’s sponsorship ends at the conclusion of the 2017 event, which is certain to lead to plenty of discussion about the possibility of revamping the four-tournament format. Deutsche Bank is already out the door as a title sponsor of one of the four season-ending tournaments, and while the PGA Tour is reportedly negotiating a new deal with FedEx, after more than a decade it could be time for a change. CONSISTENCY IS KING HARD ASK FOR SPIETH UNCERTAIN FUTURE ONLY the top five-ranked players are guaranteed the FedEx Cup and the $10 million if they win this weekend. Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Adam Scott, Jason Day and Paul Casey all have enough points to secure overall victory if they salute at East Lake. It’s a sliding scale after that, with sixth-placed Rory McIlroy relying on a couple of things to fall his way in order for him to go home $10 million richer, and each player after that requiring slightly more assistance from other players underperforming. FATE IN THEIR HANDS
