The FedEx Cup Points Reset and Tour Championship Points

September 14, 2009

Scotchman in San Diego wanted to know how the FedEx Cup points were reset going into the Tour Championship so that he could conduct a few “what if” scenarios. Playing with a few numbers makes it pretty clear, though. Any of the top five can win by winning the Tour Championship; anyone outside the top five can win if they finish first at the Tour Championship, and the other top players finish unexpectedly low. So here they are; regardless of the number of points players previously had accumulated, the FedEx Cup points are reset going into the Tour Championship as follows:

1 (Tiger Woods) - 2,500
2 (Steve Stricker) - 2,250
3 (Jim Furyk) - 2,000
4 (Zach Johnson) - 1,800
5 (Heath Slocum) - 1,600
6 (Padraig Harrington) - 1,400
7 (Sean O’Hair) - 1,200
8 (Scott Verplank) - 1,000
9 (Kenny Perry) - 800
10 (Jason Duffner) - 600
11 (Dustin Johnson) - 480
12 (Nick Watney) - 460
13 (Geoff Ogilvy) - 440
14 (Phil Mickelson) - 420
15 (Retief Goosen) - 400
16 (Mark Leishman) - 380
17 (Brian Gay) - 360
18 (Kevin Na) - 340
