DeChambeau the man to beat at season-ending Tour Championship

TOUR Championship: Power ranking all 30 players at East Lake

The next five will begin at 4 under, regressing by one stroke per five players until those ranked Nos.

The bonus program will provide additional drama to the regular season finale and also place a greater premium on full-season performance, thus elevating the significance of each tournament on the schedule.

Under the current system that ends this week, points are reset going into the Tour Championship so that all 30 players have a mathematical chance to win the FedEx Cup, and the top five only have to win the tournament to capture the $10 million bonus.

For a three-year stretch, the FedEx Cup Playoffs were a stage where stars shined.

The victor at East Lake will also claim the FedExCup.

The bottom line is that PGA Tour members are playing for even more money.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said: "Compared to the current system, the beauty here is in the simplicity".

A three-times victor this season, Thomas worked only on his short game during the week off following his share of 12th place at the season's penultimate event. "And, of course, the players will know exactly where they stand at all times while in play, which will ratchet up the drama, effect and volatility of the competition down the stretch. 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".

PGA makes positive changes to FedEx Cup format

"Even a five-win year, I still looked for ways to improve because there is always something to improve and I feel I can win even more than (five)".

The regular-season leader will receive $US2 million and $US1.5 million will go to second place, while 10th will still pocket $US500,000.

While that part of the change is an improvement, it might take some getting used to a tournament where a player as a 10-shot advantage over others before the first tee ball is struck.

"We wanted to. address a concern that we've had for a number of years now, which is allowing our fans to engage at a much higher, much deeper level - and that has to start with them being able to follow the competition more closely than they have previously", Pazder said. The top 10 are expected to average just over $12 million, and the top 50 players will earn more than $5 million in earnings and bonuses.

In addition to the Wyndham Rewards, the FedExCup bonus pool will increase by $25 million to $60 million. "The PGA Tour was smart and showed us a lot of TV footage of analysts and guys talking about it".

PGA Tour regulations stipulate that a player in violation of the policy is subject to a "Major Penalty, " which can include a minimum fine of $20,000 and a suspension of at least three tournaments. "They shared our vision for how we can challenge ourselves to raise level of excitement and fan engagement throughout the season up until the moment our FedExCup Champion is determined". Now is the time to make these changes, and thanks to significant input in the process by our players, partners and fans, I believe we're making exactly the right moves.
