Thomas wins FedExCup; Schauffele wins Tour Championship

For the first time since 2009, there was a hardware split at the season finale. Here's how things ended up at the Tour Championship, where rookie Xander Schauffele won the tournament but Justin Thomas claimed the FedExCup:

Leaderboard: Xander Schauffele (-12), Justin Thomas (-11), Russell Henley (-10), Kevin Kisner (-10)

What it means: Schauffele put a cap on a standout rookie season by erasing a two-shot deficit in the final round at East Lake. A winner earlier this season at The Greenbrier Classic, he now becomes the first rookie to win twice since Keegan Bradley in 2011. Schauffele's 72nd-hole birdie edged him past Thomas, but Thomas' consolation prize came in the form of the $10 million check for winning the season-long race. After a year that included five wins and a major, Thomas started the week at No. 2 in the points race and easily moved past Jordan Spieth, who tied for seventh.
