Topic - The Tour Championship
The Tour Championship (typeset as THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola) was historically the final event of golf's PGA Tour season. Since 2007, it has been the final event of the FedEx Cup, the competition for the first official championship trophy for the PGA Tour season. From 1987 to 1996, several courses hosted the event. Beginning in 1997, the event alternated between Champions Golf Club in Houston, Texas and East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia; since 2004, East Lake has been the event's permanent home. The greens at East Lake were redone with MiniVerde bermuda grass (replacing heat prone bentgrass) in 2009. It is one of the richest tournaments on the tour. - Source: Wikipedia

Woods was on the Jack Nicklaus Award ballot with British Open champion Phil Mickelson, Masters champion Adam Scott, FedEx Cup champion Henrik Stenson and Matt Kuchar.
Stenson held off a brief challenge by 20-year-old Jordan Spieth and closed with a 2-under 68 to win the Tour Championship by three shots over Spieth and Steve Stricker. With the win, the 37-year-old Swede clinched the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus.

Johnson made two big birdie putts over the closing holes at soggy Conway Farms on Monday to dole out more final-round disappointment for Jim Furyk.
Henrik Stenson had been absent from two big golf markets in America for longer than he would care to remember.
Tiger Woods and Chicago used to be a great recipe for winning, or at least coming close.
Steve Stricker will play in what he calls the "Super Bowl" of the PGA Tour season instead of hunting for elk in Colorado.
Down to his last chance, Rory McIlroy knew this was no time to be riding the brakes.
Jim Furyk kept waiting for the phone to ring to learn about the Presidents Cup. News came from the buzz of a text message, a peculiar way to find out he would not be part of an American team for the first time since Tiger Woods was still trying to get his PGA Tour card.
