Golf Australia Express : Issue 53
IT'S FEDEX CUP TIME again which is really exciting. After all, it's been five years since the series started, so the hype has had time to work its magic way into our collective golfing consciousness. It's a cup that behaves like a major with a big name (and that counts) but if you try to sound like you know what you're talking about you might find yourself getting a bit twisted. I certainly did. Wanted to impress a mate and started sprouting how I couldn't wait to watch the cup over the weekend. And that didn't go down too well. As it turns out, the FedEx Cup is the grand finale of the PGA Tour, a cup that represents four tournaments with each individual tournament seen as a round. Four rounds spread over a month that culls numbers from 125 to just 30. So the TOUR Championship by Coca- Cola (I imagine the name will get a bit of a rejig in the future) is the final round of the FedEx Cup. Everyone who plays this weekend has already made the cut. That's why there's no cut at the event and even the bloke who comes in last will take home more than I earn in a year. On top of this, the points system is manipulated to ensure everyone who plays in the TOUR Championship has a shot at the FedEx prize. I really want to explain the maths but that was never my strong suit, although I'm absolutely sure when people start talking about mathematical odds they are drawing an extremely long bow. So the top five---who, by the way are a THE FINALE TO THE FEDEX CUP---AS WELL AS THE SERIES ITSELF---IS DAMN EXCITING. AT LEAST I THINK IT IS, WRITES WILL HONE. CUP OF CONFUSION with Will Hone IN HONING fairly eloquent representation of the crème- de-la-crème of the golfing world---are set to fight it out, blow by blow on the course. And behind them are 25 others who have proven their worth in some kind of tribal golfing trial by ordeal, all begging for a chance to tread on a fallen star. It's got everything it takes to make for a great weekend of golf and I'm almost 45 per cent sure I understand what's going on. I'm reasonably clear the TOUR Championship is the last leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. I'm entirely certain, though, that those select few who have earned their place through the three previous competitions are the tour elite, and they're all let loose on a course for the weekend. That sounds like a good game to me. OTG It's got everything it takes to make for a great weekend of golf and I'm almost 45 per cent sure I understand what's going on. DO YOU AGREE?
