I always look forward to the start of the playoffs for the FedEx Cup.  

First, there is the pressure of staying in the hunt.  Players are trying to survive week to week.  It is as much, if not more pressure than a Major Championship.  And, of course, the 10 million smackeroos at the end helps a lot.  That can really make a player’s year!

Thanks to Coleman McDowell of GOLF.com for these 4 interesting facts to help us through to the end!

In an annual tradition, golf fans everywhere gather around to host FedEx Cup watch parties and eagerly await the crowning of a new champion.

But first, we have to relearn how the actual playoffs work. Here are the four things to know about the structure, participants and points for the nine-year old system that is ever-changing.

2) The four events that comprise the FedEx Cup are The Barclays, Deutsche Bank Championship, BMW Championship, and Tour Championship.

The Barclays kicks off with 125 players according to their FedEx Cup points ranking. It is whittled down to 100 at the Deutsche Bank and 70 at the BMW. The final event will be comprised of 30 players. Before the finale, point totals are reset, so the points leader will tee off with 2,000 points, second place with 1,800 and on down the list. This setup allows for more players to be in contention in the season finale. Last year Billy Horschel won the BMW and Tour Championships en route to the title after beginning the playoffs ranked 69th. He was the lowest-ranked player entering the playoffs to win.
