(Atlanta, GA) -- Henrik Stenson is celebrating a victory in the FedExCup. Stenson held on with a two-under round of 68 during Sunday's final round of the Tour Championship in Atlanta to win the tournament at 13-under-par. Stenson says winning the Tour Championship and FedExCup trumps the prize money of over $11-million that came along with them.
The Tour Championship was his fourth PGA Tour title. He jumped over two-time FedExCup champion Tiger Woods to claim golf's playoff prize. The Swedish Stenson is the first European to win the FedExCup or the Tour Championship. Jordan Spieth and Steve Stricker each finished the tournament second at 10-under, while Webb Simpson was fourth at nine-under-par. Woods finished the tournament at even-par and in a tie for 22nd.
