Fall events to award full FedEx points
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Players who compete in the PGA Tour’s Fall Series events will receive full FedEx Cup points beginning with the 2013-14 season.
In March, the PGA Tour announced that the new season would begin in October 2013, with the current Fall Series, and conclude with the Tour Championship in September 2014.
“With the fall tournaments moving to the front end of the PGA Tour schedule, the Policy Board believes the next logical step is for these tournaments to kick off the FedEx Cup and begin awarding full points,” PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said in a statement. “All of these tournaments have been very successful and certainly deserve to be part of the FedExCup competition.”
The Tour, however, still is undecided on the end-of-the-year system that will determine which players receive Tour cards.
