TOP 10 TOUR CHAMPIONSHIPS
September 20, 2010
It's a bit of a stretch to call it golf's Super Bowl, but the Tour Championship has served the same purpose since its inception in 1987: End the season with a bang and resolve all of the game's plotlines. Golf's measuring stick has always been money, and the Tour Championship has been a big part of the hyperinflation. The tournament gave us golf's first million-dollar man—Curtis Strange, in 1988—and now annually bestows a cool $10 million on some lucky soul as the culmination of the FedEx Cup. In fact the Cup has reinvigorated the Tour Championship, transforming what had become a mellow working vacation into a cutthroat stress-fest at which success is measured in both strokes and points. And money, of course. Almost a quarter century later, that hasn't changed.
