Hurricane Irene is closing in on the east coast and has caused the PGA Tour to cut the first segment of the FedEx Cup playoffs to 54 holes. The Barclays will have a Friday cut as normal, and Saturday’s round will be the final round.

“We do everything we possibly can to get 72 holes by Sunday.  Unfortunately, Irene is not cooperating.” ~Slugger White, PGA Tour vice president of rules and competition

Scoreboards will be taken down Friday afternoon.

Do you understand the FedEx Cup system?

FedEx Cup LogoIn an attempt to keep big name players playing after the final major and keep up fan interest/ratings, the PGA Tour created the FedEx Cup playoff system a few years ago.  It wasn’t perfect and they tweaked the system for a while.  I’m all for having more high level golf available to consume as a fan, and however they need to do it is fine with me.

I’m very curious to find out if HOG readers understand the FedEx Cup.  Quite simply I’d like to ask that very question, which is now a poll question in the upper left column here on HOG.  Please vote, and comment in below if you’d like a little more input.
