PGA makes positive changes to FedEx Cup format

Seamus Power has been rescued by his short game but believes his driving can improve to the required standard

Day concedes he continually measures himself against his breakout 2015 campaign, when he captured the US PGA Championship among five US Tour wins that catapulted him to a debut world No.1 stint.

Still to be determined is how the Official World Golf Ranking will distribute points when the victor might not have the lowest score for the week. This year, Dustin Johnson had the most points in the regular season by 83 points over Thomas.

The tournament schedule will include the Ryder Cup (2036), PGA Championship (2031), Women's PGA Championship (2022 and 2027), Senior PGA Championship (2025, 2033), PGA Professional Championship (2029) and the Junior PGA Championship (Girls and Boys, 2024).

As has been the case since the FedExCup Playoffs' inception in 2007, the postseason's last event, The Tour Championship, will feature 30 players.

Rose finished runner-up to Bryson DeChambeau at the Dell Technologies Championship.

Justin Rose is again in position to win a playoff event. He also said making up a 10-shot deficit at the start of the Tour Championship would be easier than winning the tournament while a host of other long-shot scenarios all fall into place.

Under the current system, FedEx Cup points won throughout the season are partly reset before the Tour Championship begins, so that all 30 players theoretically can win.

Jimmy Butler’s trade request creates even more uncertainty for the Minnesota Timberwolves
So despite his request for a trade, it seems likely Butler will remain in Minnesota - and likely will for some time to come. As we know, the Bulls traded Butler on draft night in 2017, for Zach LaVine , Kris Dunn and the No. 7 overall pick.

While the victor of the new version Tour Championship will get credit with a tournament victory, the best way to think of this is that it's not a tournament at all but really a conclusion to the season. However, Woods enters the 2018 Tour Championship full of confidence.

The 2017 PGA Championship victor revealed he suffered the injury in the final round of the BMW Championship ast Sunday, where he finished T12. Bettors have jumped on Woods' bandwagon, pushing his 2018 Tour Championship odds down from 14-1 to 12-1.

For the most part, Billy Horschel, who won the FedEx Cup after he won the Tour Championship in 2014 and some top-ranked players stumbled, likes the changes.

Thomas is no stranger to the winner's circle. However, he has failed to land inside the top 10 in his last two starts.

Smith will make his Tour Championship debut, while Marc Leishman rounds out the Australian tilt at East Lake Golf Club and he sits 29th on the standings. "You're better off being mentally fresh than you are, I would say, having my game physically fresh". Anyone who bets on these underdogs could hit it big.
