Simplicity the key with changes to FedExCup Playoffs finale

Bryson De Chambeau is bidding for his third win in his last four starts

The governing body revealed there would be a bonus system based on strokes that will take effect at the Tour Championship next year and the Playoffs will be reduced from four tournaments to three.

After the Wyndham Championship, the last tournament before the start of the FedEx Cup play-offs, the regular-season points leader will receive $2m (£1.5m) from a $10m fund shared among the top 10.

The top 10 players in the FedEx Cup during the regular season are part of a separate $10 million bonus program that pays $2 million to the No. 1 player.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLORIDA - With the upcoming 2018-19 PGA TOUR schedule reflecting previously announced, significant structural changes, PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan today unveiled further innovations that elevate the entire FedExCup season - from the Regular Season through the FedExCup Playoffs and ultimately, at the Playoffs Finale, the TOUR Championship. The fans? Well, you can bank on them tuning in more to see who that money may be going to, not how much. Will Gray of the Golf Channel does a great job of illustrating how such a structure would affect this year's Tour Championship, which begins on Thursday. The second-place player will be 8-under, third 7-under, fourth 6-under and fifth 5-under. That scenario happened just two other times in time in FedEx history that dates to 2007 - when Camilo Villegas won the Tour Championship in 2008 and Vijay Singh had already clinched the FedEx Cup; and after the format was changed, Phil Mickelson won the Tour Championship and Tiger Woods took the FedEx Cup in 2009.

Anthony Joshua defends heavyweight titles in knocking out Alexander Povetkin
Joshua towered over Povetkin, who had to use good head movement early on to avoid the jab of Joshua. "When I fought Klitschko, I was much weaker and in worse shape than I am now", he said.

Baker Mayfield leads Browns to 1st win in 635 days
The Bud Light Victory Fridges opened Thursday night after the Browns won for the first time in almost two years. Mayfield was 17-of-23 for 201 yards on the way to the win and he also caught a two-point conversion.

Hong Kong raises typhoon alert to highest level as Mangkhut closes in
In Hong Kong, authorities also issued their maximum alert, with residents warned to stay indoors to avoid flying debris. The typhoon made landfall at Baggao, in the north-east of the Philippines, at about 01.40am yesterday.

Most of the usual suspects are here, with the notable exception of Jordan Spieth, who misses the TOUR Championship for the first time in his career.

Victory at the 30-man finale would net the Queenslander nearly $US1.6 million, while he would also pocket a $US10 million bonus should he pull off the inconceivable and become the first Australian to win the FedEx title. Victor of the tournament wins the whole deal, including a newly jacked-up $15 million prize.

Pazder said the tour applied the new model to the previous 11 years and the same player won every FedEx Cup except for 2011. Monahan said that might encourage players to enter the final regular-season event, the Wyndham Championship, to try to secure the No. 1 seed or at least improve positions going into the playoffs. "As play moves on through the week, we're just looking at a scoreboard". The prize for winning the FedEx Cup is increasing to $15 million from $10 million.

Despite earning nearly $5 million from 19 starts, Day feels his poor results at the majors - failing to finish inside the top-15 at all four of golf's biggest events - influenced his negative assessment.
