Henrk Stenson went wire to wire to win the Tour Championship and take the FedEx Cup. He didn’t have the best performance he’s had the first three rounds but he still played well enough to hang on for the win beating Steve Stricker and the emerging star of Jordan Speith. Speith couldn’t help but watch, as Stenson hit a bunker shot which led to a par and the victory which earned Stenson 11 million dollars total. Is this the rise and return of the Stenson we saw around 2006, 2007? Only time will tell but a performance like that deserves some attention as he will definitely be a guy to look out for going into next season. Stricker was trying to make a charge but failed to do so but still put up a solid effort.
Speith also had a great chance and doing so and if he managed to knock off Stenson for the win, Speith would end up having one of the more dominant rookie seasons in golf history if he finished with two wins with one of them being a major caliber tournament. So, it makes you wonder, can Speith have a Rory Mcilroy type of season next year? Can he win a few tournaments and maybe even win a major? Only time will tell but he’ very talented and it’s exciting to see a kid out there with no fear of any golfer and just giving it his all every time. He’ll likely have another great season next year too. Right now though, Henrik Stenson is your 2013 FedEx Cup champion. Here’s the final leaderboard: http://www.pgatour.com/leaderboard.html
