How I would make the Fed Ex Cup exciting

First of all there would be no cuts in any of the tournaments. All qualified players play four days which gives everyone a chance:

Week one: Top 144 players enter. After 4 days only 72 move on. The others pack their bags and go home.

Week two: 72 players play 4 rounds and top 36 move on.

Week three: 36 players play 4 rounds with top 18 going to player championship.

Week 4: 18 guys battle it out with the winner taking home the 10 million dollar check.

Easy. Breezy! Everyone fights for their life every week, nobody gets to take a tournament off and the end result is determined on the final day of the Tour Championship.

If you have your own ideas I’d love to see them.
