Champions Tour to have 2016 play-offs climax 
Nine years after the adoption of the FedEx Cup, the US Champions Tour will start a play-off system of its own in 2016, with the 50-and-over circuit adopting a three-event playoff to end its season.
Now the Champions Tour has unveiled the first leg of the new play-off system: A new event in Los Angeles.
All that's left is to pick an official site in the area.
For 2017 and 2018, a recently renovated Sherwood Country Club will be host of the play-off opener, which will be known as the PowerShares QQQ Championship. 
However, the October 24-30 event in 2016 will be at a course yet to be announced. 
The top 72 players in the Charles Schwab Cup points standings at regular-season's end will qualify for the PowerShares field. The top 54 after the Los Angeles event will move on to the second tournament in the three-event series.
The PowerShares QQQ Championship will lead into the Dominion Charity Classic and the Charles Schwab Cup Championship. The latter event will conclude the play-offs and the season-long champion will be decided after that.
