Tiger hunts victory ahead of Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods admits it was painful to watch the European team celebrating in 2012

It was tough watching them celebrate, ' he said.

The changes include a more compact schedule next season that ends August 25, a week before football begins.

The Tour Championship is the final event of the US$67 million FedExCup playoffs series, where the leading points scorer will pocket a US$10 million bonus.

'Fans are very familiar with golf leaderboards in relation to par, so they will have a clear understanding of the impact every shot makes during the final run for the FedEx Cup, ultimately leading to a singular champion without conflicting storylines'. "I don't know if it's going to rank up there as one of my top seasons because I didn't win eight or nine times in a season - two to three majors in a year - but to accomplish what I've accomplished, to get back to this point, it's something I'm very proud of". For Woods, this one felt even better because of the dry, tougher conditions at East Lake. But can he really beat this elite field of 30 players?

The victor is determined by his score to par, not his 72-hole score.

"We now have a single leaderboard", said Andy Pazder, the tour's chief of operations. "As play moves on through the week, we're just looking at a scoreboard".

He has won the Tour Championship twice, in 1999 and 2007, the latter victory at East Lake when he also won the inaugural FedEx Cup.

From 2019, the player who has the most FedEx Cup points after the BMW Championship will start the first round of the 2019 Tour Championship on a score of 10 under par.

TIGER WOODS believes the two teams are evenly matched as he prepares to play the Ryder Cup for the first time since 2012.

The lowest-seeded player to win the FedEx Cup was Bill Haas (No. 25) in 2011. I didn't know how many tournaments I'd play in, and next thing you know, here I am in the Tour Championship. That means he'll probably need to finish in the top 15 this weekend in Florida.

"I think the season itself has been awesome, to be able to have played this well after coming off what I came off of". FedEx last year agreed to a 10-year extension, and the bonus pool for the postseason now is $60 million (along with $10 million in bonus money for the regular season).

"That takes a lot off stress next year because you can pick and choose your events for the whole season and tailor it to peaking around the majors", Smith said.

And even though England's Justin Rose - the world No 1 who is one behind - is projected to top the FedEx Cup standings and scoop the $10 million (£7.5 million), it is hard to quantify how highly the "U.S.A, U.S.A" confidence would soar if Woods could finally end his five-year winning drought on the eve of the biennial dust-up.

Still to be determined is how the Official World Golf Ranking will distribute points when the victor might not have the lowest score for the week.
