       The PGA Tour season reaches its climax this month with the FedExCup Play-Offs with the Tour Championship live

Justin Thomas had won nine times on the PGA TOUR before last week's BMW Championship.

The PGA Tour has instigated the scoring system, based on accumulated points, so that top seed Justin Thomas starts the event at 10 under par, with the second seed at eight under, and so on, down to even par for the 26th-to-30th ranked players in the elite field.

If the obscene jackpot on offer - and the shameless marketing of the US$5 million hike from a year ago - is a turn-off, then the unprecedented new format could even manage to cause more shaking of heads. That sort of scenario makes the 30-year-old uneasy.

"You can shoot the best score of the week and not win the tournament", McIlory told reporters. "If that happens to someone it's going to be hard for them to wrap their head around".

"I'm not saying that money is a bad thing, it motivates a lot of people, but I think for me and my competitive spirit, I want to win the FedEx Cup for a lot of different reasons".

Woods did not qualify to defend his title this week.

The FedEx Cup standings were ridiculously complicated, with players and fans, alike, unsure of the state of play as the action -unfolded and Jay Monahan, the PGA Tour chief executive, chose to be bold as the tournament moved forwards to September. "Players might care about it, and we want to be rewarded and paid for what we do, but at the same time, competitively, it's not about that".

"I don't think the money needs to be front and centre because I don't think that's what the fans care about. I don't know because that's not what it's about", he said.

"If the FedEx Cup wants to create a legacy that lasts longer, it doesn't need to be about the money", said the Northern Irishman. "With this format it has the potential where myself and a couple of guys get hot at the top of the leaderboard and it could be a one-man show", Thomas conceded.

"I think it gives more guys a chance to win this week".
