LEMONT, Ill. (AP) — Stewart Cink was more perturbed than most when he heard a parade of complaints about the FedEx Cup from various players, who suggested the tour didn’t consult them about the changes.
Cink was on the front lines as a member of the PGA Tour policy board. He also was in player meetings that were not well-attended.
“It’s been documented for a year now in print,” he said. “I don’t see how you can complain about not knowing. As far as being left out of the process, I think that a lot of players were asked, just about everybody was given an opportunity. We had abysmal attendance at player meetings. That’s our forum. If you can’t take the time to come to the player meeting and voice your opinion, then how else are we supposed to get it?”
Cink said players shouldn’t gripe about anything until after the FedEx Cup is over, then figure out how to make it better.
