Moving into a new tax bracket...

Justin Thomas fell one shot short of his 6th win on the season but picked up the $10 million from winning the FedEx Cup. Had Thomas won, he would have become the first player since Tiger Woods to win six times in one season on the PGA Tour. The FedEx Cup title caps off a breakout season for the 24 year old who has ascended to superstardom. On top of the $10 million bonus from the FedEx Cup, Thomas earned an $9.9 million in earnings, bringing his total just shy of $20 million.

That's a wrap

The 2016-2017 season comes to an end, with a one week break before the 2017-2018 season begins...no rest for the weary.

The more meaningful golf

In Cleveland, Nicholas Lindheim won the DAP Championship in a playoff over Chesson Hadley and Rob Oppenheim. The win earns Lindheim another shot at the PGA Tour after finishing 197th this season. Hadley's runner-up finish secured him the top spot on the money list, giving him full exempt status on Tour next season and a spot in the Players. Heading into next week's finale, players in 14th or better in the Web.com Tour Finals standings have clinched their PGA Tour cards.
