Boo Weekley blasted the PGA Tour’s wraparound season and the FedEx Cup in this story by Steve Elling at Golf Blot. “Honestly, this wraparound season sucks,” he said. “It does, seriously. It’s just, it’s stupid. I still ain’t figured out this FedEx. What does this FedExCup stuff do? It ain’t doing nothing, but it is what it is. It’s supposed to be the players’ tour.
