Finchem addresses FedEx future 

January, 7, 2007
KAPALUA, Hawaii -- Tim Finchem held a press conference at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, and with such a limited media contingent covering this event, it seemed a pretty good time to get some important questions answered from the commish. Problem is, he's been so visible over the past year -- explaining and re-explaining the FedEx Cup system -- that there isn't much he hasn't spoken about.

Confounded as to what new query I could have answered, I thought of my blog posting from two days ago, in which it was suggested that the PGA Tour be amenable to change in its format, just as NASCAR has done after three years of its own points system. I was pleasantly surprised at Finchem's response, in which he called it a "work in progress." Here's our exchange (the entire transcript can be found here):

Q: NASCAR has recently announced that after three years in the current points system, they will change the format for 2007. Do you see that as something the PGA Tour can look to if the current pointing standing doesn't work in a few years?
