I think this whole FedEx cup thing is very lame, but I have a q.
According to the FedEx cup web site, the top 30 go into the final event which is the tour championship, at which point the points are re set. I assume this means that all 30 players start the tournament tied at zero. Then it would seem that whoever wins the tournament, wins the FedEx cup. But the promo material on the web site suggests that some players have a better chance of winning than others (I assume based on past performance through the playoffs).
But if all the points are reset then does not each of the 30 players have an equal chance of winning the cup i.e. whoever wins the tour champinoship wins the cup. I’m confused.
