FedEx Cup staying same

  • Follow Golf

The PGA Tour is leaving the FedEx Cup just as it is with the playoff schedule and points system.

Rick George , the chief of operations for the PGA Tour, said Tuesday that any adjustment to the points system was not on the agenda and not discussed at a board meeting earlier this week.

It would be the first time since the FedEx Cup began in 2006 that the points system was left alone. Tiger Woods won the $10 million prize this year.

George said the FedEx Cup has met its objectives and he doesn't anticipate any changes.

RENO EVENT MOVED: The PGA Tour is moving the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open to July, the same weekend a nationally televised celebrity golf tournament has been played at Lake Tahoe for 20 years.

The PGA event historically has been played in August at Montreux Golf & Country Club on the edge of Mount Rose between Reno and Lake Tahoe.

The new dates, July 15-18, put it opposite the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Tahoe and the British Open.

GOING TO DISNEY: Former Georgia golfer Erik Compton , who has two heart transplants, received another exemption into the Children's Miracle Network Classic at Disney next week.

Compton received an exemption last year and tied for 60th. He was allowed to ride in a cart, just five months after his second transplant. Compton will be walking this year.
