DeChambeau the man to beat at season-ending Tour Championship

And while the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 will be recognized at the conclusion of the Wyndham Championship, the impact of the program will be felt throughout the season; a player's performance every week becomes more critical than ever before, elevating the significance of each tournament on the schedule and producing drama for PGA TOUR fans at every turn.

Bryson DeChambeau leads the FedEx Cup standings after winning the first two playoff events, but world No. 1 Justin Rose lurks just behind him. The next golfer in the standings will begin at 8-under, the player in the third spot would be 7-under, and so on.

The victor is determined by his score to par, not his 72-hole score.

Tiger Woods hasn't won a tournament all season, but he still has a solid chance to cash in on a $10 million payday by winning the FedEx Cup this weekend at East Lake Golf Club. 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.

One huge surprise the model is calling for in its 2018 Tour Championship picks: Woods, the only player to win the FedEx Cup a couple of times, makes a strong run but falls just short of winning the title. "And, of course, the players will know exactly where they stand at all times while in play, which will ratchet up the drama, outcome and volatility of the competition down the stretch".

"It's never going to be ideal", said Thomas, who past year won the FedExCup while Xander Schauffele won The Tour Championship. In 17 starts this season, he has two second-place finishes and six top-10s.


Most of the usual suspects are here, with the notable exception of Jordan Spieth, who misses the TOUR Championship for the first time in his career. I've had a lot of top 25s and yeah I would like to have more top 10s and wins, but as a whole I feel like I've gotten better as a player this year.

The FedExCup play-offs will also be reduced from four events to three, with the Dell Technologies Championship removed from the schedule. 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).

One of the concerns is essentially handicapping the field for the FedEx Cup finale at East Lake.

Monahan said the victor of the FedEx Cup next year would make upward of $27 million, and he expected comprehensive player earnings to increase 12 percent, or more than $500 million.

The top 125 players after the Wyndham Championship will compete in The Northern Trust, with 70 qualifying for the BMW Championship and the traditional top 30 contesting the title-deciding Tour Championship.
