FedEx Cup victor to earn $15 million in 2019

PGA Tour announces changes to Fed Ex Cup Playoffs format

The FedEx Cup Playoffs will be trimmed to three events instead of four, and players at the top of the points standings will start the 2019 Tour Championship with a massive advantage. "In fact, it's been a long time coming, and we've really looked forward to this day", PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said Tuesday during his state of the union address at East Lake Golf Club. PGA Tour COO Andy Pazder revealed that the matter is taken care of.

The schedule adjustments include the playoffs being reduced to three events - the Northern Trust, BMW Championship and The Tour Championship.

Jordan Spieth, who won this event in 2015, missed the cut of 30 as he now sits at No. 31 in the FedExCup standings. Both events will award quadruple points compared to regular-season events.

The FedExCup standings' leader will start next year's season-finale on 10 under par - two shots ahead of the next five players in the standings - while those ranked 26th to 30th will need to make up 10 strokes on the leader over 72 holes. The next four players will start at 8-under through 5-under, respectively.

Right below the favorites on the betting board are Justin Thomas at +1100 to win the TOUR Championship, Tiger Woods at +1200 and Brooks Koepka at +1200.

"Win The Tour Championship and you are the FedExCup Cup champion".

"This is a significant and exciting change for the PGA TOUR, our players, our partners and - most importantly - our fans", said Monahan.

"Our players and fans have invested in the FedExCup over the past 12 seasons, and with these enhancements, we are reinvesting in the FedExCup in order to raise the stakes, so to speak, for their benefit", said Monahan. "And we have no doubt it will create a compelling, dramatic conclusion for the Tour's ultimate prize".

Justin Rose has been red-hot this postseason with back-to-back runner-up finishes in the Dell Technologies Championship and the BMW Championship this month.

Meanwhile, the new $10 million Wyndham Rewards Top 10 not only will add drama to the Wyndham Championship as the final event before the FedExCup Playoffs but will also put an even greater premium on excelling over the course of the FedExCup Regular Season.The top-10 Regular Season finishers in FedExCup points through the Wyndham Championship - also sponsored by Wyndham Rewards - will reap the benefits of the Wyndham Rewards Top 10. "It is different, and it's never going to be flawless - no system in any sport is ever going to be ideal, but the Tour has done such a great job of talking to us and trying to get it as good as possible". "No system in any sport is ever going to be flawless, and the Tour has done such a great job of talking to us and trying to get it as good as possible".

"I think that's something that's very, very weird and going to be hard to get used to, starting further back", he added. It just kind of popped up, so I took last week off and I didn't hit a ball. "Hopefully, and I'm sure it will, it will produce a lot of great drama and a very deserving victor". I like the way it is now, but like anything, you're just going to have to get used to it and become comfortable with it because that's the way it is.
