American Justin Thomas has lifted the FedEx Cup as Xander Schauffele to become the first rookie to win the season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta.
Compatriot Xander carded a two-under 68 to finish 12 under par and win by one shot from Thomas, who finished on 66.
England’s Paul Casey led by two overnight and was in a strong position to claim the $10m cup bonus.
The competition is the PGA Tour’s season-long points race.
