...allowing 144 players in the playoff is an admission that there will not be a 'fall finish' or a 'quest for the card', as was originally planned. Guess they can't get any sponsors...
Though they do have a few California events lined up, is Chuck right?
Are the 144 player fields in the "playoffs" a sign that the post-playoff events have little future?
Or are the 144 player fields genuinely a result of the Tour's desire to make it possible for anyone to win "the Cup?"
Either way, I just can't figure out what the purpose of the season points race is when 144 players make these playoffs, with the meaning of the season points diluted?
