Default Is the FedEx Cup a Joke?

Tiger apparently thinks so, skipping the first official event in the points race, citing exhaustion. It's kind of a slap in the face to the PGA, saying he doesn't care. But if I was Tiger, I would be focused on the majors primarily and everything else is second fiddle.

SC has a good column explaining how to fix the FedEx Cup: http://www.sports-central.org/sports...rebuild_it.php

What do you guys think about this?

Nah, Tiger is just giving everyone else a chance to win by sitting the first one out.

However, I did hear that after moving up from 18 to 10 in the first tournament Ernie Els has decided to sit the next one out.

Tiger Woods capped off an amazing week by crushing the competition at the PGA Tour Championship, and he is now five major titles away from erasing Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 majors.

1. Tiger is God.

2. the FedEx cup isn't a "joke", but it is manufactured, based on nothing and sorta "fake" feeling. It will need time before it's an exciting thing people care about.

3. Seriously, Tiger is God.

I don't know. I think it is a bit of a joke when A) it can be won by someone playing in only 3 of the 4 tournaments and B) the top players could seem to care less about it by not playing in all 4 tourneys.

Tiger and Phil shoulda been kicked out for missing weeks, but due to money and ratings this would never happen.

I had no interest in this "event" (although I'm doing well on it in Tiger 08 on my Wii)
