Rory Finally Admits He Wasn't Wild About Losing The ResetCup That Everyone Knows He Deserved To Win

Derek Lawrenson reports from Dubai and the European Tour's season ending thingy, where Rory McIlroy finally admitted what most people figured he had to be feeling: ripped off by the ResetCup's resets.

‘I did feel a little hard done by to play so well and not win that,’ he said.

Perhaps the European Tour should reset the race to Dubai next week so everyone starts from scratch so that there is some drama instead of the non event it will be. Daft eh?
Well it is called the playoffs. It's not much of a playoff if the winner has already been decided.

It took me about a minute to recall who had actually won the Fed Ex Cup this year.

ADG: Can you give me a hint?

He won 2 of the 4 events. Another guy (Watney) could have done likewise going into the final. Why is Rory think he is entitled to win it all ? In the final event he came in 10th. Please stop complaining.

Sned won, right? Big smile-fast player! Deserving winner.

Rory has won what used to be called the Order of Merit. There is still a stellar field Tournament -- that counts -- to be won, with lots of dosh for the winner. Modst people would find that rather exciting golf.

Makes a hell of a lot more sense than the Reset rubbish. But to those who find Snedeker more deserving than Rory because he placed himself to win: remember that next time you are griping about Luke Donald and Lee Westwood.

Did Hunter Hass win the F*cked Up Cup in 2011?

Or was it a playoff between Hunter Mahan and Bill Hass?

I am struggling to remember.

If Rory had won every event for the entire year, then finished second in the Tour Championship, and the person who was 5th in the rankings heading into East Lake won the Tour Championship, that guy would have won the Fed Ex Cup and Rory would have finished second.

Rugby League in Australia and other sports elsewhere perhaps may have a solution:
Have a league over the season. But to get excitement at the end, the top 6 from the league go into the "finals" consisting of knock out matches except the top two teams in the league can lose their first one.
Everyone on this site will agree to Matchplay to decide the Fedex Cup. TV will like it because the places could be played out. So 6 top guys on the last day play 3 matches for big money. TV might get Tiger and Rory playing for places 5 and 6 still good and it's great to follow 3 matches- one is really boring.
Rob, ol' 3-iron won the 2011 FEC.

FYI, you know who won both the US and Euro money lists 7 times already, so don't let this chatter about Luke and Ror's get over onya ;)

Proof that assigning points to golf is not a good idea since a perfectly good point system is already in's called "strokes" and the guy with the lowest number wins.

Simple concept that golf's PTB can still cock up. The result is confusion for all.
