Greetings .... As most here should know by now, beginning in 2015 winners of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Memorial Tournament receive 3-season PGA Tour exemptions, putting the two events on equal footing with the World Golf Championship Events (WGC's) and the Tour Championship, at least as far as exempt status is concerned. However, the Fed Ex Cup points offered by the two events were -NOT- brought up to the level of the WGC events, meaning that first place is worth 500 points, rather than than the 550 points offered by the WGC events. Does it strike you as kind of odd that the PGA Tour would grant to winners of Arnold Palmer's and Jack Nicklaus' events a 3-season exemption, but at the same time choose not to raise the Fed Ex point values of the two events as well?? Thanx-A-Lot! (But not to the PGA Tour)
