The most eye-opening change concerns the FedEx Cup playoff-concluding Tour Championship, with top players carrying strokes-gained bonuses into the event.

The PGA Tour announced the most sweeping changes to its FedEx Cup playoff system, with points wiped out once the final 30 player qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta.

After the Wyndham Championship, the last tournament before the start of the FedEx Cup play-offs, the regular-season points leader will receive $2m (£1.5m) from a $10m fund shared among the top 10.

Changes include a new scoring system for the Tour Championship and a new $10 million program for the regular season. "Fans are very familiar with golf leaderboards in relation to par, so they will have a clear understanding of the impact every shot makes during the final run for the FedEx Cup-ultimately leading to a singular champion without conflicting storylines".
