    Reqq, the points reset for the Tour Championship. So forget everything that happened before and here are what your top 5 players have point wise:
    1st- 2500
    2nd- 2250
    3rd- 2000
    4th- 1800
    5th- 1600

    The winner of the event wins 2500 points. So if 5th place (Brandt Snedeker) wins the event, he will have a total points total of 4100. If Rory (current 1st place) gets 2nd in the event, he will get 1500 points for the event and finish with 4000 points, thus making Brandt the winner of the Fedex Cup. Where this gets hairy is if Rory places horribly, and one of the top 3 guys get second place, they essentially could claim the Fedex Cup title just by placing 2nd

    Can anyone explain how the fedex cup points works. Rory now over 2500 points ahead and only 2500 points for the winner next week, hence Rory is unreachable, but yet pgatour says top 5 has a chance to win?
