Nancy Berkley on the FedEx Cup and Liberty National

August 31, 2009

As I was following the coverage of the Barclays, the first event in the PGA Tour's Playoffs schedule, I was particularly intrigued by the "Deeds & Weeds" related angle: the host site, the very private Liberty National GC, which cost $250 million to build, charges a $500,000 initiation fee and (according to some reports) needs at least another 100 members in order to become financially healthy.

I thought about trying to write something up summarizing this side of the story. But then I read this column by Nancy Berkley's on and decided she had already done it for me.
