Anyone besides me tired of all the math lectures at the Tour Championship this week? This point system is the craziest and most unfair model anyone could come up with. Also, as mentioned in my earlier posts, there is a real chance for players to unfairly influence who the winner is, by jockeying their final points totals by missing shots deliberately.
Here’s my proposal: Keep the existing points system up until the Tour Championship. At the players, change to a system whereby the top five point getters are awarded 0 strokes. The next five get 1 stroke added to their score; the next five get 2 strokes, etc, until the last five players get 5 strokes added.
After that, whoever wins the tournament wins the FEDEX Cup!!
