I think we can all agree that was the way this season should have ended. It was his season. Day had a hot run there for a couple months and really played well all year, but Spieth was #1 really for the last 10 months going back to the World Challenge and Australia which he dominated and just owned the majors. He deserved the Fed Ex Cup and no doubt earned POY. Will be very interesting to see how he does next year. Pressure is going to be cranked up a lot to try and follow up this great season. Plus you know Rory is going to come out hungry and Day, if he can stay healthy like he did this year, will be a force as well. And Tiger....uhhh...nevermind.

Can't say this means much to me. Spieth's season speaks for itself but purses are bigger than ever as we know.

Spieth’s 2015 season has become the most lucrative season in PGA Tour history.

Doesn't really matter much. If Tiger had the Fed-Ex Cup during his prime year she would have made a killing.


Yep, Jordan gets it. Good for him. I was wondering if he would pull of a late in the season win after blitzing the tour from the Master's till the US Open.

I cant wait till President's cup when the final head to head match on the last day to clinch the title is Day for the International team goes against Speith for the Americans.

Spieth earned it, despite all the naysayers he won when it counted most.  Kudos to Day as well, he had a great season and both have established themselves as the guys to beat next season.  I was a bit disappointed Rory faded today, as I hoped he'd have made a run too.

I heard this was the 1st time since 1973 two guys had 5+ wins, I think it was Nicklaus and Weiskopf that year. Thought for sure Tiger and Vijay had done it once or twice but guess not. Pretty amazing tour season. We could see 3 guys do it in the next few years with McIlroy in the mix too.

True, I know Tiger moves the needle and I'm a huge fan of Tiger but I have to say I'm pretty excited about golf right now.  You have the young guns, Day, Spieth, Rory, DJ, and Fowler dominating, and another group of young guys who have potential to reach elite status, Koepka, Thomas, Finau, Matsuyama, Reed, Lee and Berger.

I think golf is in a good place right now, it's young, fresh and I think kids will relate to these players better.

I couldn't agree more! I grew up with Arnie, Jack, and Lee, and this has been the single most exciting, entertaining year of professional golf I've ever seen.

Good thing you have only have like two weeks to wait.


I don't think the events that will happen in 2 weeks through the end of the year will feature much of the players that I mentioned.

WGC HSBC will be a decent field but after that it will be guys trying to run up some points and cash before the elite field starts playing.
