BETHESDA, Md. (AP) -- Starting next year, Fall Series tournaments won't feel like second-class citizens. The PGA Tour policy board has decided to award full FedEx Cup points to the tournaments that come after the season-ending Tour Championship. That was one step in trying to shore up plans for a new season that will start in October 2013 and conclude with the Tour Championship in September 2014. "With the fall tournaments moving to the front end of the PGA Tour schedule, the policy board believes the next logical step is for these tournaments to kick off the FedEx Cup and begin awarding full points," PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said. "All of these tournaments have been very successful and certainly deserve to be part of the FedEx Cup competition."
