Tour Championship hopefuls offer support of 2019 FedEx Cup changes

England Justin Rose and Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy

This high-profile PGA event gets underway on Thursday, and Averages Joes and professional bettors alike are already sizing up the 2018 Tour Championship field, which includes the top 30 golfers in the FedExCup standings.

The governing body revealed there would be a bonus system based on strokes that will take effect at the Tour Championship next year and the Playoffs will be reduced from four tournaments to three.

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.

In essence, the problem with the current format is that the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup are being contested at the same time. Justin Rose is the Vegas favorite at 8-1 in the latest 2018 Tour Championship odds, while Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson are close behind at 9-1.

Welcome to Tuesday of TOUR Championship week.

Monahan, who said the Tour considered many format changes, said he loves the beauty of the simplicity of the scoring at the playoff final. "It will make for a very exciting and dramatic four days".

Jack Ma: Prepare for 20 years of China-US trade war
China has retaliated with its own tariffs on US goods. "If Alibaba cannot sustain and grow, no company in China can grow". Ma's comments also followed his surprise announcement - on his 54th birthday last Monday - about retiring next year.

The regular-season leader will receive $US2 million and $US1.5 million will go to second place, while 10th will still pocket $US500,000.

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. Before you make any 2018 Tour Championship picks or try your hand in a PGA DFS tournament on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, you need to see what SportsLine's projection model has to say. "Season-long success is tantamount to qualifying for and advancing through the FedExCup Playoffs, and this is an exciting way to reward the best of the best and provide an added layer of drama for our fans in each market and around the world". 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).

TV ratings and fan interest spike whenever he's playing and in the mix.

The FedEx Cup champion will now bank $US15 million, versus the $US10 million prize from previous years. I'd have to play really good just to get to 13 or 14 under. "They shared our vision for how we can challenge ourselves to raise level of excitement and fan engagement throughout the season up until the moment our FedExCup Champion is determined". "With two big weeks coming up, it's kind of more precautionary than anything".
