One Tournament, Two Trophies, Ladies and Gents, the FedEx Cup!
The FedEx Cup concluded today and shockingly (!) Vijay Singh took home the crown while Camilo Villegas actually won the tournament that was going on.
Of the four playoff tournaments, Singh won two and Villegas won two but because Singh had more points heading into the playoffs he won the whole thing. Or something like that. Lets be honest, nobody really gets the point of the FedEx Cup and it hasn't really caught on like the PGA had hoped. I'm sure the players love the $10 million prize but the point of the playoffs is to get people excited for the end of the season and it hasn't exactly done such a thing.
Nonetheless, Villegas fired a sharp four-under 66 to get in a playoff with Sergio Garcia, defeating Serg with a par on the first playoff hole for his second win in a row.
Good job Camilo, nice job Vijay, boring job FedEx Cup. We're ready for a change!
