Play began yesterday at Bethpage Black for the Barclays. Fortunately, the heavy rains that have plagued the event in the past have given way to blue skies this week. However, something else starts this week.
After 43 regular season events, yesterday marks the beginning of the FedExCup Playoffs. The top 125 players from this season are eligible to compete in the four-event series leading up to “golf’s biggest prize.” Those are the words of the PGA Tour and its sponsors, but we’ve heard phrases like that a lot this season. Majors, Olympics, and a Ryder Cup have all been heralded as “the biggest event,” and we wonder how you view the FedExCup.
Do you plan to watch these next four events? Where do you rate the FedExCup within the overall professional golf season? Let us know in the comments below.
