PGA Tour's Finchem Says Fans Finally Embracing FedExCup Playoffs
Published September 25, 2013
BOYS OF FALL: GOLFWEEK's Adam Schupak notes six tournaments formerly part of the Tour's Fall Series "have been promoted to the FedEx Cup regular season and will award FedEx Cup points for the first time." No one is "happier than the six tournament directors, who said they finally can compete to attract the best in the game." But the six events "still face challenges in drawing an elite field." This time of year "traditionally is when top Tour talent chase guaranteed money overseas." Other players are "ready to put their feet up, burned out from a busy run through the FedEx Cup playoffs." The four "domestic events at the start of the season will face stiff competition" from the CIMB Classic in Malaysia and the WGC-HSBC Champions in China. Asia is a "long way to travel, but if you're going to play, it's hard to ignore a no-cut event for official money" (GOLFWEEK, 9/27 issue).
