PGA Tour's FedExCup Playoffs Bring Strong Ratings In Midst Of Football Season
Published September 20, 2013
POINTS SYSTEM PROVIDES VOLATILITY: USA TODAY's Steve DiMeglio wrote with the "volatility of the points structure, a player might not fully understand where he stands at any given moment during the playoffs." As has "been the case since the Tour changed the points system for the playoffs starting in 2009, theFedExCup playoffs prove that Yogi Berra was right -- it ain't over till it's over." Golfer Zach Johnson said, "It's not like you have to win every week to win that FedExCup, you've just got to win at the right times or play well at the right times." Woods said, "The first couple of years there was really no drama going into The Tour Championship. ... Now anybody that's in the top five at the Tour Championship, if they win, they automatically win the FedExCup. You're playing all year to be in the top five. That makes the Tour Championship exciting" (USATODAY.com, 9/18).
