CHECK YOUR SCHEDULE: GOLFWEEK's Forecaddie writes with the PGA Tour having concluded the "wrap" portion of the '13-14 calendar, how the first year of the new schedule went "depends whom you ask." Ryan Moore, who won a tournament, recorded another top 10 and now sits third in FedExCup points said, "Clearly I love it." But fellow golfer Tommy Gainey said, "I don't know if anyone wants to hear it or not, but I've got an opinion. I really don't like it. ... I'm just going to say one word: Confusing." Aside from the "semantics of a schedule that crosses two calendars, there were other bones to pick." Several Web.com Tour graduates earned PGA Tour cards, "but could not get into fall fields." Part of the problem "stemmed from a battle against darkness that limits field sizes to 132" (GOLFWEEK, 11/22 issue).
