Englishman Justin Rose has won the FedExCup title after a fourth-place finish at the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Course.

The FedExCup Champion title is given to the player with the most FedExCup points at the end of a season and is accompanied with an impressive $10 million pay-out.

Tiger Woods—who won the season-ending TOUR Championship and narrowly missed out on his third FedEx Cup title—placed second in the final standings.

Two years running

This is the second consecutive year that the TOUR Championship winner did not also win the FedExCup. Last year, Xander Schauffele triumphed in the tournament but it was Justin Thomas who lifted the FedExCup trophy.

However, the top five players will not walk away empty-handed. Tiger Woods, Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson and Billy Horschel will all get at least $1 million in bonus money.

“It was a situation I’d never really been in before,” Justin Rose said of his win. “Yeah, it was awkward out there, really, today.

“I was fortunate enough to win the 2007 European Tour Order of Merit, but there was nothing quite like the intensity of this with the playoff-style format back then.

“But whenever you win over the course of a season, it just gives it something extra, it gives it something special. It’s very unique.

Looking to the Ryder Cup

“And I wasn’t able to win the tournament this week, but I was able to win the season, and that’s something that maybe—there will be weeks—next week I’ll have another opportunity to win a tournament,” he added.

With next week being the Ryder Cup; Justin Rose and the European Team will go head to head with the U.S. squad, in the hopes of preventing the American side from triumphing on foreign soil for the first time in 25 years.
