Jordan Spieth wins Tour Championship to cap off big season

ATLANTA (AP) At age 22, Jordan Spieth became the first $22 million man in golf Sunday.

Spieth capped off a dream season when he poured in putts from all over East Lake and closed with a 1-under 69 for a four-shot victory in the Tour Championship. That was all he needed to become the youngest player to capture the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus.

His fifth victory of the year, including two majors, allowed the Texan to set a PGA Tour record with $12,030,465 in earnings.

If that wasn't enough, Spieth went back to No. 1 in the world.

Henrik Stenson couldn't do much about it. On two holes around the turn with the Swede in tight for birdie, Spieth made two birdies, one from 45 feet.
