PGA Tour makes a useless change

The PGA Tour has approved changes to the way the FedEx Cup will unfold next season basically guaranteeing the winner will be crowned at the Tour Championship. This is coming in response to how the first two years unfolded. Two years ago Tiger Woods had such a big lead he could skip the first playoff event and this season Vijay Singh basically clinched it by winning the first two of four playoff events. They've also changed the points reset by moving it from the beginning of the playoffs to the Tour Championship and making the playoff events worth four times more than the regular season events.

Basically they've made a pretty shitty playoff system shittier in a different way.
