FedEx Cup Playoffs extended through 2017

   The FedEx Cup playoffs aren't going anywhere.

   The PGA Tour announced today that it has reached an agreement with FedEx to extend the season-ending series of events for five years, taking it through 2017. The initial agreement was scheduled to end after this year but there had been indications that FedEx and the tour were making progress on an extension.

   FedEx will continue to sponsor the $35-million 'playoffs' with the winner taking home a $10-million bonus. Since its inception five years ago, the four-event season-ending playoffs have given the PGA Tour a higher profile conclusion to its season as playing fields gradually diminish until 30 players are left for the Tour Championship.

   The FedEx Cup champions have been Tiger Woods (twice), Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk and Bill Haas.

Are there any golf fans who actually care about the FedEx Cup? Given a choice, I would much rather see my favorite win any of the majors as opposed ot the FedEx Cup.
