Viktor Hovland ended the PGA Tour’s season with a dominant win on Sunday afternoon.
Hovland rolled to a five-shot win on Sunday to win the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, which officially won him the FedExCup Playoffs. He posted a final-round 7-under 63 on Sunday, which concluded his second straight win to end the Tour’s season.

Hovland's huge outing came on the heels of his win last week at the BMW Championship. Hovland carded a course-record 61 in his final round outside of Chicago to overtake Scottie Scheffler and grab his fifth career win. He then built up a six-shot lead entering Sunday’s final round in Atlanta, and rolled to his sixth career win without any issue.
With his win on Sunday, Hovland earned himself an $18 million check. That bumped his career earnings up to about $44.6 million. The FedExCup’s bonus pool hit $75 million this year, and the top eight finishers this week each earned at least $2 million. Emiliano Grillo and Taylor Moore, who finished tied in last, still brought home more than $500,000 each.
Xander Schauffele finished in second at 22-under, and U.S. Open winner Wyndham Clark finished in third at 16-under — 11 shots back from Hovland.
