Last year at the Tour Championship at East Lake the best golfer in the world Dustin Johnson was given a head-start and never looked back.
Now Jon Rahm wears the crown DJ once wore and is looking to chase down Patrick Cantlay from four shots behind.
The staggered system giving the 30 competing players a strokes-based advantage based on their FedExCup position has been criticised.
The leader, Cantlay, has been speaking honestly this week about a range of subjects, from Bryson DeChambeau to the format itself.
Cantlay told SkySports: "I am not a mastermind on golf formats and there are lots of moving parts, so I'm not saying that I have the answer, but there are lots of smart people and I guarantee you there must be an option for a better format out there."
Patty Ice has said the key for him this week is trying to not get "ahead of himself" as the format lends itself to that.
He's already qualified for the Ryder Cup thanks to his victory over Bryson DeChambeau at the BMW Championship.
