ATLANTA (AP) - The bonus pool for the PGA Tour season doubles next year to $70 million in a revamped system that pays $15 million to the FedEx Cup champion.
PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan says the changes were geared toward making the FedEx Cup finale easier for fans to understand and to avoid the potential of separate winners of the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup.
Starting next year at East Lake, the FedEx Cup leader will start the Tour Championship at 10-under par and have a two-shot lead. The other scores will be staggered, with the final five players in the 30-man field starting at even par.
Whoever finishes 72 holes with the lowest score to par wins the FedEx Cup. He also gets credit for winning the Tour Championship.
