Stenson almost doubles career earnings...


Sweden's Henrik Stenson became the first European winner of both the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup titles - nearly doubling his PGA Tour career earnings in one tournament.

Stenson, dressed in Hugo Boss golf clothing, shot a final round of 68 to win by three from United States pair Jordan Spieth and Steve Stricker.

He claimed a whopping first prize of £875,000 and an incredible £6.3m FedEx Cup bonus.

The 37-year-old, whose career earnings totalled approximately £8.1m before arriving in Atlanta, had a four-shot lead ahead of the final round.

But his lead was cut to one when 20-year-old Spieth emerged from the chasing pack after sinking four successive birdies from the 13th.

The American had already carded a hat-trick of birdies from the seventh, whilst Stenson dropped his first shot of the day on the 14th.

However, Spieth bogeyed the 17th when his approach buired in a greenside bunker and Stenson holed from seven feet for a important birdie on the 15th.

"It was a tough day out there today and I am really satisfied with the way I hung in there," said Stenson.

"I didn't feel that confident with my game today. I had to battle it a little bit. I had to fight hard mentally."

Spieth, who only turned professional in December 2012 before claiming his first PGA Tour title in July as a teenager, carded a challenging 64.

Stricker returned a 65 to join Spieth on 10 under, with US Open Champion Justin Rose a further three shots behind after a final-round 67.

Nike Golf’s Tiger Woods fired a closing 67 to finish level par for the tournament and in a tie for 22nd place.

The world number one was one of five players - along with Stenson, Adam Scott, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar - who knew a win would secure them the season-long FedEx Cup.
