ABOUT THE FREDEX CUP

A season-long money race between teams of our choosing. Specifically, Neil, Tron, DJ, Soly and Randy all drafted teams of six players each from the group of 50 Korn Ferry Tour graduates moving up to the PGA Tour for the 2019-20 season. Said draft can be heard via Episode 39 of the TrapDraw podcast for anybody interested. The Race to the FredEx Cup will chart the cumulative money earned in official PGA Tour events, with the winning team having the most money earned by all of its members.

The FredEx Cup is a prestigious trophy dedicated to all Freds everywhere, with special recognition to Freddie Schuster, Freddie Mitchell, Fred Smith, Fred Smoot, Fred Thompson, and Fred Ridley. The actual, physical trophy is in fact a ‘donated’ plastic sippy cup courtesy of Freddie Schuster.

STAKES

The stakes couldn’t be higher for this season’s FredEx Cup. In addition to the aforementioned trophy, the winning captain will be allocated funds to throw a celebratory pizza party for his team (wives and significant others included!) at the completion of the tour season. Conversely, the last place team gets to run the 40-yard dash with the sprint being filmed and published on our channels.

Additionally, there is one mid-race ‘goodie’ during the course of the Race to the FredEx Cup:

MASTERS WEEK ADD/DROP: the team in last place may choose to utilize this at their discretion. The add/drop allows for one player to be dropped from the roster and replaced with a player who was not originally drafted.
