    And he just chipped in (again) to go birdie-birdie (again) and take the tournament lead at -5. He's so going to win this thing.

    Ogilvy is playing great too, and just tied him at -5.

    Final day of the PGA Championship:

    Woods opened the door, but Austin and Els can't walk through.

    There's still a chance but, holes are running out.

    Woods wins the BMW Championship to put him back in first place in the race for the FedEx Cup.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/golf/pga/lea...RGB8UAxAq8wrYF

    A $10M prize awaits the player with the most FedEx Cup points, which will be determined next weekend in the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP in Atlanta.

    Extreme heat has caused damage to the greens which has prompted course officials to prohibit greens use until the tournament next week at the East Lake Golf Club.
    The 30 players won't even be able to hit onto the greens, let alone walk on them, during next weeks practice rounds and the pro-am has been canceled.

    Here's the points available for next week's TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP and the current FedEx Cup points standings:

    rk pts... ... rk player...... points.
    01 10,300 ... 01 Woods....... 112,733
    02 06,200 ... 02 Stricker.... 109,600
    03 03,900 ... 03 Mickelson... 108,613
    04 02,800 ... 04 Sabbatini... 103,588
    05 02,300 ... 05 Choi........ 103,100
    06 02,060 ... 06 Baddeley.... 102,800
    07 01,920 ... 07 Scott....... 100,227
    08 01,780 ... 08 Furyk....... 099,838
    09 01,660 ... 09 Singh....... 099,214
    10 01,550 ... 10 Garcia...... 098,277
    11 01,440 ... 11 Ogilvy...... 098,063
    12 01,330 ... 12 Johnson..... 097,823
    13 01,220 ... 13 Howell III.. 097,631
    14 01,120 ... 14 Els......... 097,575
    15 01,030 ... 15 Snedeker.... 097,507
    16 00,965 ... 16 Rose........ 097,250
    17 00,910 ... 17 Austin...... 097,223
    18 00,855 ... 18 Calcavecchia 097,019
    19 00,800 ... 19 Verplank.... 096,632
    20 00,745 ... 20 Mahan....... 096,516
    21 00,690 ... 21 Wetterich... 095,774
    22 00,640 ... 22 Weekley..... 095,734
    23 00,590 ... 23 Rollins..... 095,710
    24 00,550 ... 24 Cink........ 095,513
    25 00,510 ... 25 Byrd........ 095,471
    26 00,475 ... 26 Allenby..... 095,450
    27 00,440 ... 27 Clark....... 095,425
    28 00,420 ... 28 Villegas.... 095,003
    29 00,405 ... 29 Slocum...... 094,876
    30 00,395 ... 30 Harrington.. 094,841


    Don't believe the NBC commercial for the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP next week.
    The announcer in that commercial says "...the FedEx Cup playoffs have come down to this. 30 players with a chance to win $10M".

    Based on the above information, it looks to me (if my calculations are correct) that
    only Woods, Stricker, Mickelson, Sabbatini or Choi could win the FedEx Cup.

    ONLY Woods or Stricker could win the FedEx Cup if either wins the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP, no matter what anyone else does.

    Mickelson could win the FedEx Cup if he wins the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP AND Woods finishes 3rd or worse.

    Sabbatini could win the FedEx Cup if he wins the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP, Woods finishes 14th or worse, Stricker finishes 3rd or worse, AND Mickelson finishes 3rd or worse.

    Choi could win the FedEx Cup if he wins the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP, Woods finishes 22nd or worse, Stricker finishes 4th or worse, AND Mickelson finishes 3rd or worse.

    The reason why Baddeley and everyone below him in the standings can't win the FedEx Cup is the following. If Baddeley wins the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP and Woods comes in last place in the tournament, Woods would still have more FedEx Cup points than Baddeley, and therefore, also more points than everyone else below Baddeley in the FedEx Cup standings.

    The field to win the FedEx Cup is not 30 players, it's only five.

    The TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP tournament has begun.

    It's on THE GOLF CHANNEL right now (Thursday 10AM).

    This weekend, it will be on NBC.

    Turns out my calculations were correct.
    Only the five players named in the above post could win the FedEx cup.

    The only thing I missed is that Baddeley COULD win it if Woods were a no show or disqualified from the tournament.

    BTW, the greens look ok and the announcers are saying the same.

    Pretty compelling evidence up there Bogey about the hype around the "big playoff" scheme. Of course, as every TV persona will remind us, it's all about Tiger...and Phil. Personally, I'm at the point where I root against Tiger and Phil consistently, kind of the whole New York Yankees syndrome (well, for Tiger at least, Phil I'm just tired of having shoved down our throats). But, I digress, the Fed Ex Cup is about ratings and interest, and so long as Tiger and Phil are up there, nobody really cares that the 139 other players that began the playoffs really had no shot at winning.

    Here's hoping Stricker plays the weekend of his life and comes out on top.

    OK, this fn thing is over already.

    Woods is -13 and no one in contention for the FedEx Cup is in sight.

    That was a fun tournament.
    YAAAAWWWWWN!


    Edit: Just saw the 70ft putt for Eagle to put him -13.

    He couldn't even believe it went in, the look on his face showing, "WTF was that?", then smiling and rubbing his eyes as if to say "Holy S, I can't believe how well I'm doing."

    The dude is on another plane.
    It's great for him, but does not make for an interesting tournament.

    Where is Messier or Lemieux to his Gretzky?
    No one else is stepping up.
    They can't.
