Justin Thomas wins $10m jackpot with FedExCup victory at East Lake

25 September 2017

Thomas, who won five times this season, including his first major at the PGA Championship, earns a $10m bonus.

Thomas, who has won five times this season, hit his 231-yard approach shot on the 590-yard final hole to within six feet of the cup and made the putt for eagle.

It was a stunning performance from the 23-year-old who won just $150,000 playing the secondary Tour in 2016 but ends this year with earnings of more than $7.3 million and a three-year exemption to the world's richest circuit.

"It's awesome just because I feel like I played so well this year", Thomas said. Now I can plan around the majors and build a schedule that is beneficial for my golf game on the course and my body off the course.

"He has that belief now that he can make it happen", Spieth said of Thomas.

The reception would have given the 49ers a first down at the Rams' 39-yard line during what could have been a game-winning drive. Gaining an extended week, the 49ers will gear up for another divisional test, this time in Arizona against the Cardinals (1-1).

Spieth has enjoyed developing friendships on tour and hopes the trips continue. "This was the most uncomfortable I've been with the putter in my hands maybe in my career". "Just didn't have it today with the ball striking", Kisner said.

"Our buddies out here experience life kind of the same way we do". He joined the PGA Tour in 2009. Throw that out the window.

He turned pro and would get that first PGA Tour win three years later, missing the Tour Championship by one spot in 2012. Quail hollow proved a tough test with its recent re-design, but still offered numerous birdie chances.

Rookie Xander Schauffele (66), US Open champion Brooks Koepka (69) and Jason Dufner (67) are tied for eighth at five-under 133.

The vagaries of the FedEx points process meant Jordan Spieth for a spell had control of the $10m.

That key pick though at the end of Sunday's 27-20 defeat to Washington was a awful read as he stared down his receiver. The attempt failed, however San Francisco attempted an onside kick on the next play that they successfully recovered.

Bethpage Black in NY actually has a warning sign before its first tee box hinting that the course might be too hard for the average golfer. Going low is one thing - staying there wins championships. Bethpage is scheduled to host the PGA Championship in 2019. Tiring of the world travel required to play on both the European Tour and PGA TOUR, he made the decision to focus on the PGA full-time in 2015.

That's a long way off from becoming a reality, and it includes feedback from the players. This is the ninth straight year Johnson has qualified for the TOUR Championship, the longest active streak.

However, the current group of young stars are faced with a unique situation.

To be fair, the Tour has always been faced with a staggering challenge when it comes to drawing more eyeballs to its season finale, to transform this tournament into one that even casual golf fans will be talking about for years to come.

Because it's the whole driving force of the first act and if you didn't know that scene it would've made the whole audience gasp. The sole zinging addition to this expensive cocktail is Elton John , playing a deliciously potty-mouthed exaggeration of himself.
