The end to the FedEx Cup is great way to finish the PGA season, I can see Justin Rose finishing in real style and stamping down his authority as world number one.

The official end of the PGA Tour season takes place this weekend with the Tour Championship finale which will decide the victor of the FedEx Cup, whilst in Europe they play their final tournament before the Ryder Cup. Instead of maintaining the point race after the BMW Championship, the golfer with the most FedEx Cup points will start the Tour Championship at 10-under par, the player with the second-most points will begin at 8 under and so on.

For just the third time in the FedEx Cup era, the Tour Championship produced split champions.

After hearing Andy Pazder, the PGA Tour's chief tournament and competitions officer deliver a presentation on the changes, Casey said that he was receptive to the idea of the strokes-based scoring system. "Fans are very familiar with golf leaderboards in relation to par, so they will have a clear understanding of the impact every shot makes during the final run for the FedEx Cup-ultimately leading to a singular champion without conflicting storylines".

Cape Town - Bryson DeChambeau will start as favourite in the season-ending Tour Championship when it gets underway in Atlanta on Thursday.

NBA Star Jimmy Butler Requests Trade Away From Minnesota Timberwolves
Wiggins, meanwhile, has been said to be bothered by being relegated to the team's third offensive option behind Butler and Towns. Now he also must balance the possibility of Butler leaving, and how the franchise should best handle that.

"Every time I have ever come here, the scenario is like you've got to do this and he's got to do that, and you can win, but you won't win", Casey said in the practice area at East Lake Country Club.

All of which makes Tuesday morning's announcement at PGA Tour headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. seem all the more radical.

The 25-year-old revealed he suffered the injury during the delayed final round of the BMW Championship on September 10, when a closing 68 left him in a tie for 12th. Thomas finished second here past year, and Schauffele was outside the top 5 in the standings entering East Lake, making Thomas the easy season-long champion. No. 2 Justin Rose would be at 8 under, with No. 3 Tony Finau at 7 under, No. 4 Dustin Johnson at 6 under and No. 5 Thomas at 5 under. FedEx last year agreed to a 10-year extension, and the bonus pool for the postseason now is $60 million (along with $10 million in bonus money for the regular season).

Further, there will be a new Wyndham Rewards Top 10 race doling out $10 million to the best players during the regular season, with the leader in the standings heading into the playoffs getting $2 million and the 10th-place finisher getting $500,000. "As play moves on through the week, we're just looking at a scoreboard". With two big weeks coming up it's more precautionary than anything.
