Add Peter Kostis to the list of those underwhelmed by Tim Finchem's announced intentions to fix the Tour schedule.

You have to figure that if the Tour can't convince players to do something semi-radical at The International (daily cuts, start from scratch Sunday), it's going to be tough to convince the players that FedEx Cup will only work with something bold and brash. And this is why the FedEx Cup concept will continue to receive nothing but yawns and "why?"
