Actually come to think about it, the only reason why the FedEx Cup Playoffs will garner more attention and heightened interest is because of the absence of Tiger Woods. Last year you pretty much knew that come what may, nothing was going to stop Tiger from adding another cup to his cabinet.

Maybe the overall viewership might be down this year as compared to last year but hat is bound to happen without a big crowd puller like Tiger Woods sitting at home. But the interest is bound to see an increase because of the playoffs structure. With so many players in the reckoning this year, I think Tim Finchem might just breathe a huge sigh of relief. After all he did cop a lot of stick last year with so many inherent flaws in the structure. A little bit of tightening and an open competition means better results and a little more praise for the commissioner.

They managed to overcome the biggest flaw in the structure, which was the mode of payment and god bless them for that. Now if we could get some theatrics and a fancy setting to hand over the money to the winner then I think we can safely say they would have ‘righted’ their wrongs.
