SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) - Jordan Spieth already can count on one award as player of the year.

Spieth has clinched the points-based PGA of America player of the year. Winning the Masters and U.S. Open gave him a 50-point bonus for capturing two majors in one year.

Even if PGA champion Jason Day were to win all four FedEx Cup playoff events, he would not have enough points to catch Spieth.

Majors are worth 30 points, and Spieth has two other PGA Tour wins (Valspar Championship, John Deere Classic) each worth 10 points.

He is assured of finishing no worse than second on the PGA Tour money list, pushing his total to 149 points. That doesn’t include points from the Vardon Trophy for lowest scoring average. Spieth leads by a comfortable margin.
