How Tiger Woods can win the 2018 FedEx Cup

ATLANTA-The biggest payday in golf is getting bigger. The other was in 2009, when Phil Mickelson won the tournament and Tiger Woods won the FedEx Cup. The bonus pool for the PGA Tour season doubles next year to $70 million in a revamped system that pays $15 million to the FedEx Cup champion. The new version of the PGA Tour's season-ending tournament is going to be FedEx Cup 101.

The top player in points at the end of the regular season will receive a $2 million bonus, with payouts going down 10 places to $500,000.

In addition to the $10 million Wyndham Rewards Top 10, the existing FedExCup bonus pool will increase by $25 million, to $60 million.

"We're thrilled with these changes put forth today".

"Compared to the current system, the beauty here is in the simplicity", Monahan said Tuesday.

Also, Wyndham is kicking in $10 million to the top finishers in the regular season, which concludes at the Wyndham Championship.

Also, significantly more money will be put into the points race and playoff format, with the victor to receive a $15 million bonus starting next season.

When the FedEx Cup was introduced back in 2007, there were lots of adjustments made as deficiencies became apparent.

Gone will be the points reset that occurs following the BMW Championship and the guessing game that ensues with the various possibilities throughout the rounds.

The tour said there would not be a separate purse for the Tour Championship.

The next five players would be at 4 under, with players 11 to 15 at 3 under, 16 to 20 at 2 under, 21 to 215 at 1 under and players 26 through 30 would start at even par.

There will no longer be a need for high-tech calculators as head-scratching scenarios explaining what a player would have to do to win the FedExCup are eliminated.

Bill Haas at No. 25 had the lowest seed of any FedEx Cup victor when he won in 2011. The Englishman won the Shell Houston Open in April, and after securing his PGA Tour card, chose to switch back to the European Tour over the summer in an effort to earn a spot on the European Ryder Cup team.

"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".

Monahan also said the PGA is upping the importance of the standings entering the Tour Championship with a strokes-based system that sets the player with the most FedEX Cup points at an opening score of 10-under par. Or you could have the best 72-hole score and not win the tournament.

A year ago, Xander Schauffele won the Tour Championship and Justin Thomas, the runner-up, won the FedEx Cup. "No system in any sport is ever going to be ideal, and the Tour has done such a great job of talking to us and trying to get it as good as possible".

"It's going to be different for sure". That part's a little bit of a bummer but we're just going to see how it unfolds and hopefully it turns out well. I liked the way that it is now but, like anything, you're just going to have to get used to it. Hopefully, it will produce a lot of great drama and a very deserving victor.
