ATLANTA — Tiger Woods didn't qualify for the Tour Championship, his second consecutive miss. Nor is Jim Furyk around to defend his title. They account for three of the four FedEx Cup crowns awarded since the PGA Tour's "playoff" series was introduced. Vijay Singh did make the 30-man lineup but needs serious help to take home the $10 million FedEx top prize. Ditto for Phil Mickelson. Suffice it to say the FedEx Cup will have a fresh champion when the final putt drops Sunday at East Lake Golf Club.

WASHINGTON - The second set was churning along and Chanda Rubin was not pleased. Her erratic backhand had her overcompensating with pressure on her forehand, and her forehand was not responding the way she wanted. When she pushed an easy forehand volley long, she clasped her hand over her white hat in total embarrassment. Rubin, ranked No. 8 in the world, was the anchor of this U.S. Fed Cup team, and she was out to prove she deserved it. As she faced Italian Francesca Schiavone in what would be the deciding match in an American sweep, she willed herself to steady her game and put her opponent away.

The FedEx Cup begins its fifth edition of its "playoff" series this week, signaling open season for critics of the PGA Tour's attempt to give its season a meaningful finish. The points system is too wonky. The four-event series is weighted too heavily. One could win two playoff events but not the FedEx Cup. It's all worth examining. But one can't say players don't take it seriously. Why else would Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington and other top names have added their names to last week's stop in Greensboro?
