Justin Thomas wins the FedEx Cup

Overnight leader Paul Casey finished in fifth place after three bogeys in his first nine holes saw him drop out of contention.

Justin Thomas officially clinched the 2017 FedEx Cup on Sunday at The Tour Championship from East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Ga. Simpson made par on the final five holes.

Jason Day will need to improve on his previous best Tour Championship score to win.

It was suitably exciting, and so close for an hour that with each birdie or bogey either way the projected destination of the trophy changed hands. These four players and Jon Rahm would all win the title with a victory at the Tour Championship.

Thomas posted back-to-back birdies from the 16th to pull into a tie for the lead but could only par the par-five last, as Schauffele held his nerve and converted a two-foot birdie for victory.

Sunday's competition was also a strong rebound for Thomas.

The FedExCup title also comes with a US$10 million (S$13.5 million) bonus, which Casey could use to buy a lot of baby gifts. Because he put himself in such a good position over the first three days, closing came a little easier. Thomas T6. Day, -6 T6. Schauffele was steady down the stretch and won the tournament at 12 under.

Atkins has already earned a PGA Tour card by finishing in the top 25 on the regular-season Web.com money list. Like Casey, he could become the first player since Bill Haas in 2011 to make the Tour Championship his only win of the season.

Stanley was 158th in 2014 (one top-10, three top-25s), 181 in 2015 (three top-25s) and 116 in 2016 (five top-25s). "They could still run the European events and we'll have, say, 12 big events a year, outside the majors, a bit like they do in tennis". Rory McIlroy owned 2014 with two majors.

The field features Tom Watson, who famously chipped in on the 17th for birdie to beat Jack Nicklaus in the 1982 U.S. Open. Now he has the cash to prove it. The success early in the year made me think I should play well every week.
