Less than a year ago, Tiger Woods sat at a podium prior to the Presidents Cup and reckoned with his own golf mortality. Now he's playing in the Tour Championship.

Coming off yet another surgery and yet another layoff, Woods was a vice captain for the team, a fancy name for “guy who grabs sandwiches.” He looked older, puffier, wearier by the day. Asked if there was a possibility that his days of competitive golf were behind him, Woods gave an answer remarkable in its honesty: “Yeah, definitely. If, on that September 2017 afternoon, you’d laid down a bet that Woods would be teeing it up in the 2018 Tour Championship, the showcase for the season’s 30 top golfers on the PGA Tour, well, you’d be able to park your yacht next to Woods’ in the Bahamas.

ATLANTA—Previous reports suggested major changes were in the FedEx Cup’s future. On Tuesday, the PGA Tour made them official. Commissioner Jay Monahan announced that, beginning in 2019, the tour's postseason will feature several modifications, highlighted by a simplified scoring system, monetary rewards for regular-season performance and an increased payout for the FedEx Cup champ.

SportsPulse: USA TODAY Sports' Steve DiMeglio previews the final leg of the FedExCup playoffs, the Tour Championship. ATLANTA — Overall, the seismic changes to the FedExCup get a thumbs up. The grand prize for the champion jumps to $15 million from $10 million starting next season, which will make some palms sweat. The playoffs, which will be in its 13th season next year, are reduced from four events to three for the first time, putting a greater emphasis on each tournament. And coinciding with the considerable changes to the schedule, the postseason will bring an end to the season before Labor Day, thus escaping the behemoth shadows of the NFL, MLB and college football. Then there’s the new

After 27 years in prison, a man who loves golf walked free today. Not only that, he was given back his innocence. Of course, the state can regift innocence about as capably as it can 27 years. Nevertheless, the Erie County District Court in Buffalo, N

Tour Edge’s Exotics EXS line is something different. What’s different about the new Exotics EXS line is that while it brings a tech-rich line of metalwoods to the market again, it’s now doing it at a price point at the affordable end of the premium range, including a $300 adjustable driver with carbon composite sections. “This is the most technology we’ve ever been able to fit into a design, and each one works in concert with the other,” said David Glod, Tour Edge president and master club designer.

PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan believes the return of a fully-fit Tiger Woods has had a "tremendous and significant" impact both on and off the golf course. Woods will bring the curtain down on a largely successful comeback this week when he tees off in the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake in suburban Atlanta. It is the first time that Woods has qualified for the elite 30-strong event since a 22nd place finish in 2013.

Every player in the elite field has a mathematical chance of claiming both titles but only DeChambeau and four others would be guaranteed the overall prize by winning the Tour Championship. Nobody in the field, however, has as favorable a scenario as DeChambeau since the 25-year-old American can finish as low as 29th place and still possibly bag the top prize.
