Is the PGA Tour playoff system finally right?

I’ve been critical for the first two years of the PGA Tour “playoff” system, and for good reason.  It was a bogey.  Big name players like Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were skipping playoff rounds. Last year Padraig Harrington won two majors but didn’t qualify?  That is actually a double bogey.

Has the tweaking of the playoff system finally worked?

Perhaps the tweaking and refining the FedEx Cup system has finally paid off.  During this weekend’s 2nd round of the playoffs, I watched every minute of all four days of television coverage.  I usually only do that during major championships.  Not only that, I was excited.  I was rooting for players like Steve Stricker and Paddy and Sean O’Hair.

Or…. Have players like Steve Stricker made it more exciting?

Maybe the system’s tweaks aren’t why I’m interested more this year.  Maybe the playoff is more exciting because of the players themselves?  The playoff isn’t a runaway for Tiger Woods now that Steve Stricker has taken the lead and Tiger has moved to 2nd place.  Now there’s some real pressure and excitement.

Whatever the reason, I hope playoffs in the years to come can be as exciting as this year’s.

Oh man if only Tom Watson could have parred the 72nd hole at the British Open. That would have been one of the biggest moments in sports history. Still, that was one of the most awesome performances I’ve seen, and the most fun I’ve had watching golf all year.

Today is Tom’s 60th birthday. HOG best wishes to Tom Watson.
