“So I don’t need tomorrow to justify it. I’m not going to sit here and say $10 million doesn’t mean anything to me, because it does”.
And then he got even.
“This year is unreal”.
“This is an event where we approach it like a major championship because we know this is possible at the end of it”, he said.
“We did not have a great play-offs but we put a lot of hard work into this week”. Not anymore. Spieth won the Masters and U.S. Open, missed a playoff by one shot at the British Open in his spirited run for the Grand Slam and was runner-up at the PGA. Graeme Storm of England had five birdies in his round of 67 to finish second with a 16-under score of 268. In addition to that, he also received the $10 million bonus awarded to the FedEx Cup champion.
“I had missed two cuts in a row and I had never done that”. “It was the same putting display today – just an exhibition on the greens to be honest”. And with Stenson just over 3 feet away for birdie on No. 11, Spieth curled in a 45-foot birdie putt.
Jason Day warms up on the practice green during the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club, Atlanta September 27, 2015.
Danny Lee has cemented himself as one of the brighest stars on the PGA Tour after he finished the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake in second place.
His final round of 70 left him tied at four under with Dustin Johnson, who shot a fine 64, and Bubba Watson.
Loupe finished 198th in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup standings to drop into the four-event series for the top 75 players from the Web.com Tour money list, Nos.
Day said he needed to take the long view.
Spieth wins the Valspar Championship at the third extra hole of a three-way play-off.
Spieth padded his bank account and erased all doubt about the PGA Tour Player of the Year race on Sunday as he touched off his fifth win in a year that included two majors as well as this playoff victory.
He rolled in a 7m birdie putt while Stenson suffered a bogey, a key two-shot swing. His scrambling percentage was a season-high and field-best 84 percent.
Jordan began the day nearly neck and neck with Henrik Stenson, the 2013 FedExCup champ, but pulled through to dominate at the 8th hole.
He bogeyed 13, then bounced back with birdies on the following two holes.
Stenson, meanwhile, found his race for the title turning into a battle to hang on to at least a share of second, which he relinquished with a double-bogey at 17.
Two bogeys early in his back nine ended hopes of victory but his round was still the second-best on the final day.
Biggest disappointment: Stenson started the day one back and was tied with Spieth through six holes but failed to generate enough momentum to pass his playing partner. “When she came out I didn’t even see her”, he said. He had five wins, tied with Jason Day.
