However, the 12-time US Tour victor says capturing this week's Tour Championship in Atlanta and having a series of results fall in his favour to claim the FedEx Cup would allow his season to end on a high.

The adjustments coincide with the Tour's significant changes to the schedule, which now will see the season conclude before Labor Day to escape the looming shadows of the NFL, MLB and college football.

It makes sense that the PGA Tour would want to simplify the FedEx Cup points system, but stroke bonus system clearly still needs some fine-tuning.

Under the current system, any player within the top five entering this week who wins the Tour Championship will also win the FedEx Cup. The 2018 Tour Championship odds board has been changing all week, but Justin Thomas has remained on top at 8-1 despite a wrist injury suffered in the final round of the BMW Championship. 26-30 at even par. Since 2008, the tournament winner's score has been between 7-under and 13-under.

"Just a little tightness and it probably looks a little worse than it is".

The first three playoff events gradually cut the field down to 30 for the final Tour Championship event, where only the top five in the rankings are guaranteed the overall Cup and $10 million prize with a win. Will Gray of the Golf Channel does a great job of illustrating how such a structure would affect this year's Tour Championship, which begins on Thursday.

The 2017 PGA Championship victor revealed he suffered the injury in the final round of the BMW Championship ast Sunday, where he finished T12. The other was in 2009, when Phil Mickelson won the tournament and Tiger Woods won the FedEx Cup.

Pazder said the tour applied the new model to the previous 11 years and the same player won every FedEx Cup except for 2011.

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

Also, Wyndham is kicking in $10 million to the top finishers in the regular season, which concludes at the Wyndham Championship. "As soon as the TOUR Championship begins, any fan - no matter if they've followed the PGA TOUR all season or are just tuning in for the final event - can immediately understand what's going on and what's at stake for every single player in the field". The announcement likely means more of the Tour's top players will come to Greensboro.

The bottom line is that PGA Tour members are playing for even more money.
