With TOUR Championship win, Spieth reclaims No. 1 ranking


Former Longhorn golfer Jordan Spieth won the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola and the FedExCup on Sunday in Atlanta to cap off his “dream season.” The 22-year-old is the youngest player to win the TOUR Championship, and his $12,030,465 season winnings is the most in golf history.

Spieth’s season total includes $1.485 million for winning the TOUR and a $10 million bonus for the FedExCup victory. Spieth’s notable season includes wins at the Masters and the U.S. Open earlier in the year. He has more than $22 million in career earnings since turning pro at age 19. 

“Jordan, the entire Longhorn Nation joins me in congratulating you on a great victory today to cap off a great year,” said Texas interim men’s athletics director Mike Perrin. “I look forward to extending congratulations in person when we can meet. Until then — Hook ‘Em Horns!”

Spieth’s weekend victories powered him past Australian golfer Jason Day to the top of the world standings.
