Jordan Spieth takes the house in FedEx Cup finale

Powered by National Club Golfer

In the end there was no need to pore over the endless FedEx Cup permutations as Spieth closed out his sensational season with a four-shot win at East Lake.

The 22-year-old made it win No 5 for 2015 to also clinch the $10m FedEx bonus as well as move back to the top of the world rankings.

When the votes are totted up he will almost certainly add the Player of the Year title.

It means that Spieth has earned on the course, and in bonuses, $1m for every year he’s been on the planet.

But the Texan was typically humble.

“That's great. It's fantastic,” Spieth said.

“I have an opportunity now, with a year like this and a bonus like that, to celebrate and to share it with the people that have made it possible. And that's kind of the plan. Our team did an unbelievable job this year. Everything was exactly how we needed it to be to peak at the right times. If we can continue to do that, then we'll have more seasons like this. But right now, we're going to enjoy it, and I'm able to help out those who made this possible. Because it was not a single effort.”

Spieth missed the cut in the first two FedEx play-off events but went into Sunday with a one-shot advantage over Henrik Stenson.

After a slow start he birdied 8, 9 and 11, the last from nearly 50 feet.

Stenson’s race was finally run when he shanked one from the middle of the 17th fairway. The Swede finished four shots back alongside Justin Rose and Danny Lee.

Bad news for the rest of the world is Spieth is intent on getting better.

“Hopefully I can improve,” Spieth said. “Ball striking-wise, tee ball I can get stronger, I can hit it further, my short game I want to keep consistent, keep exactly where it's at. But, yeah, as far as dissecting that, it's a little early. I'll probably do that a little bit more in the off season and figure out what our weaknesses are.”
