The Presidents Cup ended Sunday the same way it always does — with an American victory, and Tiger Woods delivering the winning point.
Tiger Woods was voted PGA Tour player of the year for the 11th time on the strength of his five big wins and return to No. 1 in the world.
With the win, the 37-year-old Swede clinched the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus. Stenson also earned $1.44 million for winning the tournament.
It was the 11th time that Woods won PGA player of the year, and ninth time he won the Vardon.
Stenson made four bogeys in the rain on the back nine at East Lake and shot a 1-under 69 for a four-shot lead over Dustin Johnson.
Henrik Stenson looked like he couldn’t miss Thursday in the Tour Championship. Tiger Woods didn’t make a thing.

Jim Furyk has become the sixth player in PGA Tour history to shoot a 59.
