Although I've never really warmed to the "Play-offs" as a whole (or really understood why called play-offs), I am looking forward to the St. Jude this week.
Many higher ranked players will be back, should be a good individual tournament.

--- πŸ˜‰ not so keen on the next two events, limited fields with no 36 hole cuts, everyone is paid for turning up, can't imagine why the already rich players bother πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ ---

Also the new world ranking system starts this week so be interesting to see how that works.

It'll never catch on.:ROFLMAO:

Interested in this - what's changing? Is there a benefit to the DPWT and other official tours (ie non-LIV) or will it result in a strengthening of the PGAT?

Tommy Fleetwood wins the DP World Tour July golfer of the month πŸ€”

Strange times...
I thought Tommy had taken the PGA money route and become a journeyman pro.

Doesn't say much for DP/ET Tour if that's the best they can come up with.

Have not had a full read, but think the OWGR changes are that the field strength comes from this strokes gained rating rather than rankings.

Interestingly in this rating Rory is top and Scheffler is 5th. May need to settle down as an amateur is in the top 10!

As expected this week on the PGAT was going to be highly ranked.
The Asian Tour event is just a smidge behind the DPWT event, both a chasm away from St Jude.

The Fed Ex is on so that takes away any of the players that qualify , the others are now on LIV - it’s a new comp added in to give all those others on the ET the chance.
So Rory et al are after the massive πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’° on offer in a made up series to keep TV viewing figures falling off a cliff.

No hypocrisy in that?

It’s the Fed Ex Cup - it’s a big comp to win , it’s like winning the Order of Merit

It’s only been around for a decade plus πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Rory etc will be playing in the Dunhill and PGA etc later

Or they're fulfilling their obligations to the tour they signed up to at the start of the year if you prefer to look at it that way.

Did you fall asleep 25 years ago and miss the ET becoming the division?

The prize for winning the Fed Ex is actually $18 million. So they could play in that against the best players in the world or some tinpot ET event against Richard Bland and other journeyman pros.

Which would you choose?
