Tour Championship leaderboard: Schauffele wins, Thomas takes FedEx Cup

For Thomas, the FedEx Cup was fitting reward for a season which returned five victories, one of which was a major championship, the US PGA.

Thomas started the Tour Championship second in the standings behind Jordan Spieth, but passed his countryman by finishing four strokes better at East Lake.

The American carded a two-under 68 to finish 12 under par and win by one shot from Thomas who finished with a 66.

Thomas. He failed to pounce Saturday, shooting even par after holding a share of the 36-hole lead to fall 5 back of Casey.

US Opener victor Brooks Koepka (68), Patrick Reed (69) and US PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas (70) are tied fourth at seven under. On the par five 18th, he lagged up his eagle putt from off of the green near the hole.

"It's always such an incredible atmosphere and over the years that I've played, I've enjoyed it more and more".

Spieth earned $3 million for coming in second in the FedEx Cup, and his tie for seventh in the Tour Championship earned an additional $280,000.

Casey last won a PGA Tour title in 2009, and said: "My last round here past year was a 64 and I'd take a 64 on Sunday".

"My hands were shaking so much and I was so nervous", Schauffele said of the effort in his post round TV interview.

"I know what I need to work on to improve, so I'm going to take some time off after next week, but I'm looking forward to next week, too", Kisner said.

Thomas had the FedEx Cup wrapped up with two holes to play thanks to mistakes behind him. "Just didn't have it today with the ball striking", Kisner said. He curled in a long putt on 17 for a birdie, the fifth of his round.

Simpson has six Top-10 finishes and $3,001,396 in earnings this year.

Thomas' five Tour victories this season include a breakthrough major title at the US PGA Championship in August. Justin Thomas can make some things happen with a solid day on Sunday, but Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson and Marc Leishman have all fallen well off the pace. But X-Man showed he wasn't a one-hit wonder, winning the Greenbrier Classic in July and then becoming the underdog who wins the Tour Championship.

The big worry is that despite being based in the United States for the last ten years, Casey has found it hard to close the deal when he has a shot at winning. Holing that putt made this feel like a pretty good day after all.

"I nearly cheated my way into winning the FedEx Cup when (Thomas) really deserved it", Spieth said.

Twenty of the 30 players broke par on the warm day at the par-70 East Lake course.
