Which word do you think we've heard more of this week: tweak or volatility?
Jim McCabe notes both in an item we'll definitely want to review once the playoff excitement has died down.
The system has been tweaked since its 2007 debut. What is more apparent than last year is a more volatile nature to the points distribution. For instance, last year only two players outside the top 120 played well enough at The Barclays to earn their way to the DBC and only two from outside the top 70 got spots into the BMW. The 30-man field at the 2007 Tour Championship? It included just three names who didn't start the playoffs within the top 30.
