Garry Smits says the PGA Tour Policy Board never planned on approving or disapproving the FedEx Cup fix Monday, though that doesn't explain why all of the PAC board members yapping to the press were under a different impression.
He also confirms this, which has come up in nearly ever story:
Instead of points re-setting after the regular season, they won’t be re-set until after the third playoff event, the BMW Championship. All 30 players who reach the Tour Championship will have a mathematical chance of winning the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize.
Now, I don't know about you, but I'm not hearing anything that will prevent a player who had a great year from taking several playoff events off prior to the Tour Championship?
