The format of the playoffs has caused some controversy this year after the PGA Tour tweaked with the points allocation system to cause greater volatility on the leaderboard. It’s been somewhat successful in that regard but Vijay Singh only has to stay on course for 72 holes for the final tournament to win the Cup. Winning the first two playoff tournaments means he should win the Cup but it’s meant the last round, played after this week’s Ryder Cup is one big anti-climax.
Columbia’s very own Spiderman, Camilo Villegas won the 3rd FedEx Cup playoff tournament on the weekend. His first ever on the PGA Tour. He’s played some awesome golf this year and will win many more tournaments. Disappointingly, there’s only two Aussies left to play the last tournament in 2 weeks time, Robert Allenby and Stuart Appleby. Neither have done anything amazing this year by their standards but they’ve been fairly consistent. Geoff Ogilvy played his way out of the final 30 players to qualify last weekend. All up it’s been a bad year for the Aussies on tour.
