FedEx Cup wraps-up the golf season
The FedEx Cup is the end-of-the-year for the PGA Tour season. It's also all about the money. Whoever wins this week at the Tour Championship gets $15 million, more than Greg Norman's career earnings on the PGA Tour.
Tiger Woods (twice), Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk won the first four FedEx Cup titles, and all four will be in the World Golf Hall of Fame.
The last four winners were Justin Rose, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, and Jordan Spieth. That's good company to keep.
Woods is absent from East Lake because he didn't qualify. Woods played only six times after he won the Masters - three times he failed to make the cut, the other three he was a combined 39 shots behind the leader - and finished the season with 12 events.
British Open champion Shane Lowry didn't make it to East Lake, either, yet he has a British Open victory. Lowry played 14 times, a product of having only conditional status at the start of the year. He had middle-of-the-pack performances at two playoff events. He finished 57 points short of East Lake, which equates to being two shots better at Liberty National and at Medinah.
Total bonus money for the 30 players who made it to Atlanta is $46 million. That's what they will be chasing over the next four days.
