The top 125 is derived from the PGA Tour Official money list. The
Master's top 40 is derived from the $$ list too. Fed Ex is derived from
points earned based upon finish position, and there is not a direct
corelation to money earned, although it's fairly close. Compare 'em both:

Fed Ex points are useful only for the FedEx Cup. Money list drives lots
of execmption/qualifications.

I don't know that it affects them at all. I would wager that it most
certainly doesn't affect the Masters invites, and the 125 is what it
is - if you're in, you're in.

Interesting note - Tiger has played five events and is in second place
w/ 12,098 pts. Vijay is in first, but has played 11 events and has
12,361. And it just goes down, yet up, from there. The only other
player in the top ten w/ close to as few events as Tiger is Adam
Scott...with six events and 7596 points. Remarkable. Looks like
Tig's C+ game is better than the next best's A game. Scary.
