The Race to The Tour Championship is one that keeps me interested in the PGA Tour long after the season's final major championship, and this year was no different. I watched nearly every tournament in the past month or two, including yesterday's final round of the Chrysler Championship. Congratulations are in order for K.J. Choi who won this week's tournament and moved from 68th to 26th on the PGA Tour money list. Choi gets to tee it up at East Lake for his efforts.
Most of my weekend focus was on Ernie Els. The Big Easy missed out on the top 30 last season due to late-season injuries, but he was bound and determined to make it to the season's final event this year. In the end, a tie for sixth was good enough to move Els to 27th on the money list. Seeing the South African attempt to crunch the numbers after his round showed me just how much The Tour Championship still means to most of the world's best.
