Golf Australia Express : Issue 50
Mahan and we witnessed Haas pull off the shot of the year to extend the battle and ultimately win. High stakes brings quality golf. The FedEx Cup brings high stakes. Another way to look at the FedEx Cup is, other than the obvious exclusion of non- PGA Tour members, the season- long chase doesn’t discriminate. There are no free tickets in—not even the defending champ is assured of a spot at the Playoffs. Simply put, it presents the top 125 performing players on the PGA Tour a ticket to the carnival. From there it’s basically a fight to make sure you’re in the top 30 on the standings by the TOUR Championship. The winner of that event is pretty much assured of the FedEx Cup title depending on the order the field finishes. There’s little doubt the FedEx Cup has moved a long way as a series since its inaugural (and anti-climactic) beginning in 2007, with far more exciting finishes witnessed in the past two years. And like a good suspense-building series should, its stakes get higher each week. Its format is still confusing to many—an annual refresher is a handy way to stay across it—and it still has some issues to overcome to convert its critics. But as far as turning a dull, petering out finish to the season into an electrifying sprint for squillions, the FedEx Cup has been a real winner. OTG High stakes brings quality golf. The FedEx Cup brings high stakes.
