When he asked players about the news that the fall events for the 2013-2014 season will have full FedExCup points, he said that Jim Furyk’s opinion that if the PGA TOUR is going to do this they should go all the way represents the feeling of many players. The PGA TOUR is taking its time on the Q-School/Nationwide Tour proposal because everyone knows that they cannot afford to get this wrong.
