World number one Dustin Johnson claimed a three-shot victory at the PGA Tour’s season-ending Tour Championship.
The American, 36, held a five-stroke lead heading into Monday’s final round at East Lake and carded a two-under 68 to claim the $15m FedEx Cup jackpot.
It is a first FedEx Cup title for Johnson, who squandered a chance to win on the final round four years ago.
Compatriots Justin Thomas and Xander Schauffele each carded a final-round 66 to finish tied for second on 18 under.
Johnson told the Golf Channel: “This is a difficult golf course so no lead is really safe. I knew I was going to have to come out and play really well.
“I got off to a really good start, missed a couple of putts on the back side but hit the fairways when I needed to coming down the stretch. The guys gave me a good fight today.
“I wanted to be a FedEx Cup champion, it’s something in my career I would like to be and I’m very proud of the way I’ve played, especially over the last four tournaments.”
Former US Open champion Johnson maintained his overnight advantage after six holes but shot consecutive bogeys at seven and eight to offer Thomas and Schauffele hope. (BBC)
