DVR Alert – Yes I know this info can be found elsewhere, but I like having the 2014 Ryder Cup TV times where I can EASILY find them…

Ryder Cup App
Also, right now I’m using the Android version of the Ryder Cup app to watch the matches live on my smartphone. It is great, except when I started the app in my cubicle at the office and a completely obnoxious and loud advertisement played on the speakerphone.
The Ryder Cup app is available for Android and iOS.
I bring to you something you may never see again in your lifetime, the #1 golfer in the world four-putting the SAME hole twice in one weekend on the PGA Tour. This is the 12th hole at this past weekend’s BMW Championship:
No need to feel sorry for the young chap though. He still made it into the field of 30 at the Tour Championship, where he will have a shot at winning $10,000,000. The final 30 field is below, minus some big notables like returning champion Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson.
2014 Tour Championship Field
This week’s BMW Championship marks the third of four events in the PGA Tour’s season ending FedEx Cup. The FedEx Cup is the PGA Tour “playoffs” which awards its winner a nice payout of $10,000,000 and $5,000,000 for second. The origination of this playoff series came as a result of the PGA Tour trying to entice the big named players to compete in late season events. This is an effort to keep fan interest (and of course revenue) up longer in the season. It has worked for the most part, but not as well as they’d hoped as many players still take an event off.
I find my interest in the FedEx Cup is not terribly high, perhaps slightly higher than an upper end Tour event like THE PLAYERS (always spell that in ALL CAPS, it is what they do). I may watch some of the final round of the Tour Championship out of curiosity to see who wins the big money and who chokes it away, but my interest is not near that of a major championship like the Masters, U.S. Open, or Open Championship.

I’m curious to know what your level of interest is. Does a player who has won the Cup mean anything more to you than one who has captured a regular Tour event? Can you name the player who won it last year, or perhaps the year before without searching in Google?
I don’t have a TV right now (surely there’s rant/blog coming about that soon). Therefore I missed the chance to watch Tiger Woods and Rory McIlory on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show last night. In case you missed it like me, here’s a video clip below.
