FedEx Cup Points Distribution Formula Turns Camilo Villegas Into Runner-Up
Chew on these statistics:
M/C at Barclays
T-3 at Deutsche Bank
1st at BMW
1st at Tour Championship
1st at Barclays
1st at Deutsche Bank
T-44 at BMW
T-22 at Tour Championship
Somehow, I think that an M/C and a T-3 are worth more than Vijay’s “other” finishes. Way to go, PGA Tour. Nice job with the FedEx Cup point distribution. Methinks a freshman stats student might have come up with a better formula.

Also, Vijay would have fared better at the Tour Championship if he had some pressure. The only pressure he had (as he mentioned in the interview) was to make sure he did not sign an incorrect scorecard or get disqualified. This was Vijay's only finish outside the top 10 at this course in 8 appearances. Villegas played the whole round with bravado and a bit of recklessness (double bogey, bogey, 4 birdies in 5 holes or something like that thereafter etc....)
I think the stats guys did just fine last year and this year, and you can Monday morning quarterback every year.
