The week saw the culmination of the PGA Tour's season-long race for the FedEx Cup with the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club. Going into the last week, Jordan Spieth was in first place. The three winners of this year's FedEx Cup playoff events, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, and Marc Leishman were right behind him. These four players and Jon Rahm would all win the title with a victory at the Tour Championship.

Xander Schauffele wins the Tour Championship

Going into the final day at the Tour Championship, Paul Casey entered the day 12-under par with a two-shot lead over Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele.

Behind them were Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, and Patrick Reed at 7-under par. Jordan Spieth, who entered the final round in second play for the FedEx Cup, was at 4-under par.

Casey would shot a 3-over 73 to end his chances of winning and Kisner shot an even-par 70 to not move anywhere on the leaderboard. Spieth shot 3-under par to finish tied for seventh at 7-under par but could not do enough to win the FedEx Cup a the second time.

Thomas shot a 4-under 66 to finish his round at 11-under par, tying Schauffele, who still had to play the last hole. On the par five 18th, he lagged up his eagle putt from off of the green near the hole. He then made his three-foot birdie putt to win the tournament, as it swirled around the hole before dropping in.

This victory was the 23-year-old rookie's second on the PGA Tour this season, as he won the Greenbrier Classic back in July. He also became the first rookie to ever win the event.

While Justin Thomas win the FedEx Cup

Despite barely missing out on winning the Tour Championship, Justin Thomas capped off an amazing season by winning the FedEx Cup, which will likely seal him winning the PGA Tour Player of the Year award.

Thomas won five PGA Tour Events this year, including getting his first FedEx Cup playoff victory three weeks ago at the Dell Technologies Championship.

The 24-year-old also won his first major this year when he took the PGA Championship last month. By winning the FedEx Cup, Thomas earns $10 million dollars and becomes the second youngest to win it, only behind Jordan Spieth (22) in 2015.

He also became the first golfer since Tiger Woods in 2009 to win the FedEx Cup without winning the Tour Championship. After Thomas the final top five for the 2017 FedEx Cup was rounded out by Jordan Spieth, Xander Schauffele, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm.
