FedEx Cup Starts Today

The FedEx Cup starts today. I actually forgot that it was here and I overlooked…well everything!

The FedEx Cup is an interesting golf competition because of the “play well – move on” format. At the Barclays, all 125 players will start, but only 100 players will move on to the next event at the Deutsche Bank Championship. The third week at the BMW championship will only have 70 players competing; then at the TOUR Championship, 30 players will be left to vie for the 10 million dollar grand prize.

The current standings are as follows:

RANK THIS WEEK PLAYER NAME EVENTS POINTS # OF WINS # OF TOP 10’S
1 Jason Day 16 2,735 3 9
2 Dustin Johnson 18 2,701 2 12
3 Adam Scott 16 2,063 2 5
4 Russell Knox 21 2,001 2 4
5 Jordan Spieth 17 1,965 2 6
6 Brandt Snedeker 23 1,717 1 7
7 Patrick Reed 24 1,575 9
8 Phil Mickelson 18 1,532 6
9 Kevin Na 23 1,529 8
10 Justin Thomas 24 1,512 1 5

Personally, I am not all that jazzed about the FedEx Cup. I might be missing something, but I don’t think so. I like to watch golf and the FedEx Cup will provide that fix, but the actual format and the concept does not seem to spark my interest or at least this year!

Are you ready for the FedEx Cup? Do you like the format? Are you going to watch?

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
