PGA Tour makes big changes to playoffs

The FedEx Cup Playoffs will be trimmed to three events instead of four, and players at the top of the points standings will start the 2019 Tour Championship with a massive advantage. The new Wyndham Rewards Top 10 $10 million bonus will recognize the top 10 players who earn the most FedExCup points through the Wyndham Championship, the final event of the regular season. This season's Tour Championship includes a $10 million prize to the victor.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said: "Compared to the current system, the beauty here is in the simplicity".

The season-ending Tour Championship has been dramatically adjusted.

"Every time I have ever come here, the scenario is like you've got to do this and he's got to do that, and you can win, but you won't win", Casey said in the practice area at East Lake Country Club. Justin Thomas is the reigning FedEx Cup and he knows victory here would give him back to back success - and he knows no player has achieved this feat since the play-offs were introduced in 2007.

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. Thomas finished second here a year ago, and Schauffele was outside the top 5 in the standings entering East Lake, making Thomas the easy season-long champion. The next four players in the standings will start at 8 under through 5 under, respectively.

The next five players would be at 4 under, with players 11 to 15 at 3 under, 16 to 20 at 2 under, 21 to 215 at 1 under and players 26 through 30 would start at even par.
