FedEx Cup Golfer Supremacy Rankings heralds a new, super-fantastic era in golf
This was a historic weekend over here at the FedEx Cup Golfer Supremacy Rankings. Sure, there were some amazing NFL playoff games, the build up to the FedEx BCS Championship Game, college basketball, plus NBA and NHL games. But when historians look back at this time and quit giggling about what a bunch of morons we were, they will look at this time and see but one thing - the FedEx Cup.
Yes, the FedEx Cup is officially underway. The FedEx PGA Tour has revolutionized how we will look at golf now, as they have created an amazing points-counting system, slapped a mega-bucks corporate name on it, and forged a tacky-as-hell trophy. Now, my friends, golf matters.
So while golfers like Tiger “FedEx” Woods and Phil Mickelson are off gallivanting with their families, real golfers are out there, accumulating points. Because the PGA Tour guys that were out at the Mercedes-Benz Championship see the big picture. The field is even now. No more does Tiger dominate all. Now, with hard work and persistence, any golfer can be the FedEx Cup Champion and notch their name right up there with Stephen Ames (the 2006 Skins Game Champion) among golf’s greatest of this generation.
The “new era in golf” has begun, and we know this because FedEx Golf Channel told us repeatedly, and because whenever you see dozens of FedEx and PGA Tour executive stacked all over the place at a golf tournament, you know something big is happening.
Is the FedEx Cup the most important thing to happen to professional golf? Well, no. But there are a lot of rich guys in FedEx suits who seem to want us to think that, so for now, lets just go along with them.
FedEx Golfer Supremacy Rankings
1. Vijay Singh
Comments: It took Tim Finchem nearly two years to get Singh back to the top of the golf world, but he did it, so screw you, you bunch of Vijay haters, who’s the man now?? Regardless, Singh’s Mercedes Benz Championship victory is the type of thing that should open the eyes of FedEx PGA Tour players. Singh is almost 44 and has a couple good runs in him yet. This likely will be one of them.
2. J.B. Holmes
Comments: Holmes is tied for fourth in the FedEx Cup standings. Seriously, is this way better that the old way they used to do things on the PGA Tour. Did you even care who was tied for fourth last year at this time? I think not. Now, with the FedEx Cup, we can all take some time out of our busy day to worry about who’s tied for fourth in the FedEx Cup after one week. This is waaaay better.
3. Tony Romo
Comments: The guy went from unheralded back up, to star replacement, to trying to date Jessica Alba, to guy who missed the equivalent of a one-foot putt with the tournament on the line. Next up, a starring role in Terrell Owens’ new book “Tony Romo: What a Butt Goblin.”
Random Factoid: Darren Clarke ended a brief relationship with long-time family friend Nicola Regan. Clarke reportedly is still dealing with his wife Heather’s untimely death from cancer in 2006. In more evidence that the “new era in golf” will be all-encompassing and somewhat confusing, Clarke received 745 FedEx Cup points for breaking up with Regan.
