Jordan Spieth, 22, has clinched the 2015 FedExCup Championship with a win at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia with a score of 9-under par. Spieth takes home a total of $2 million for the Tour Championship win and $10 million for the FedExCup Playoffs win for a total of $12 million.

Spieth had a one shot lead coming into the final round and it was close until Henrik Stenson made a double-bogey on 17 to give Spieth a four shot lead with just one hole remaining.

Spieth becomes the youngest player to win the FedExCup Championship and with it caps off the most lucrative season in PGA Tour history, bringing in over $22 million. Spieth finishes the year as the number one player in the world, passing Jason Day.

On top of all of that, Jordan Spieth will likely be named the PGA Tour Player of the Year, though it's not official yet.
