Dramatic changes ahead for Tour Championship in 2019

The third ranked player will start at seven under par, with fourth and fifth place in the standings starting at six and five under respectively.

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

On Tuesday morning, the media and golf fans were made aware of the changes that are coming to the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup playoffs next season.

Under next season's system, Horschel would start the Tour Championship five shots behind Bryson DeChambeau, noting that East Lake is a hard course, so making up a big deficit will be very tough.

Tiger Woods plays his tee shot on the 17th hole during the weather delayed final round of the BMW Championship at Aronimink Golf Club on September 10, 2018 in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.

"Compared to the current system, the beauty here is in the simplicity", he continued.

Woods can become the FedExCup's first three-time champion, having won previously in 2007 and 2009, but he will need a win at East Lake, DeChambeau to finish with no better than a share of 15th - and still rely on help from others.

After the Wyndham Championship, the last tournament before the start of the FedEx Cup play-offs, the regular-season points leader will receive $2m (£1.5m) from a $10m fund shared among the top 10. The bonus system is an interesting and bold innovation, but it's not very fair to the lower half of the field.

Kavanaugh accuser offers to testify next week, but not Monday
Ford detailed, in an account to the Washington Post , that she was 15 at the time and attended the all-girls school, Holton-Arms. Grassley has said that in the interest of making Ford comfortable, he'd be willing to let Ford testify in public or private.

The FedEx Cup champion will now bank $US15 million, versus the $US10 million prize from previous years.

The top 10 players throughout the regular season will divvy up the $10 million pot with the No. 1 player taking home a $2 million check down to the No. 10 receiving $500,000. Additionally, each player in the top 10 will be invited into Wyndham Rewards at its most exclusive Diamond level, unlocking all the travel perks and unique Wyndham benefits that go along with it.

The last named is joint favourite alongside Rose to actually win the FedEx Cup, both men available to back at 5/2.

"We have no doubt it will create a compelling, dramatic conclusion for the TOUR's ultimate prize", Monahan said. He's our season-long champion. 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. "We are able to grow and diversify our fan base because we have the best athletes on the planet competing on the PGA TOUR".

He said the change for 2019 "might well be the most important of them all them". "But you take these changes and you combine them with the new and improved schedule, and we think this is a significant step forward for the PGA Tour".

"We're just going to kind of see how it unfolds, and hopefully it turns out well".
