PGA Tour To Award FedExCup Points To Fall Series Events; Moving Closer To Oct. '13 Start
Published June 27, 2012
LEGENDS OF THE FALL? WRC-TV’s Dan Hellie said the move to start the season in the fall is "obviously to appease the sponsors," but the Tour has "always said they don't want to go head-to-head with football." Hellie: "Now you’re going to start your season when football season starts? I don't think it’s going to create or generate that interest that they're looking for, and I'm not sure that they’re going to have better fields in all these events, which is what they're hoping for.” Golf Channel’s Gary Williams said, “It's a contradiction considering they created the FedExCup to end the season so you didn't bring the curtain down on Phil and Tiger and get them to play a little bit more competitive golf after the last major championship of the year. You're contradicting yourself because you’re going to butt heads with the National Football League into the month of October.” Golf Channel’s Alex Miceli: “It took two or three years to figure out the FedExCup playoffs. This thing can’t take two or three years. It's got to be right the first time” (“Morning Drive,” Golf Channel, 6/27).
