Justin Rose won the FedEx Cup in grand fashion yesterday – besting the world’s best, including a resurgence by Tiger Woods that had the golfing world cheering louder than ever before. Everyone was totally blessed by both the Player’s Championship Win by Tiger Woods, and, Justin Rose’ fabulous season ending FedEx Cup win.
Before Sunday’s final round at the Tour Championship, Justin Rose already had won two PGA Tour events this season, earned 10 top-10 finishes and collected more than $7.7 million in prize money. His Sunday 73 at East Lake Golf club did not earn him a third win for the year, but it was good enough to give the Englishman his first FedEx Cup title and the $10 million prize that comes with it.
“Sometimes the FedEx Cup rewards guys who win at the very end, but for me, I was trying to do my best to win this golf tournament and scoop the double jackpot. But far and away, being next to this trophy is something I’m very, very proud of.”
Tiger Woods seized the headlines and ended five years of frustration Sunday by winning the Tour Championship by two strokes over Billy Horschel. Yesterday was a great day for Golf, and a fabulous day for Tiger Woods. Rose capped what is arguably the best year ever for a PGA Tour player. Watch out for next week’s Ryder Cup – it will be awesome!!!!
