Henrik Stenson capped off the best three months of his career with a command performance Sunday in the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

The Swede closed with a 2-under 68 on Sunday for a three-shot win over rookie Jordan Spieth (64) and Steve Stricker (65). He took home $11.44 million -- $10 million for winning the FedEx Cup and $1.44 million for the Tour Championship.

"It shows that I never give up," said Stenson, who wasn't even in the top 200 two years ago but is now No. 4 in the world.

He led wire-to-wire at East Lake, finishing at 13-under 267.

His amazing summer began with a tie for third in the Scottish Open. He was runner-up at the British Open and the WGC event at Firestone, placed third at the PGA Championship and won the Deutsche Bank.

"It's been just an incredible run," he said.

Tiger Woods (67), the No. 1 seed going into the Tour Championship, tied for 22nd at 280 and wound up second in the FedEx Cup. That still was worth a $3 million bonus.

Spieth placed No. 7 in the FedEx Cup. He began the year with no status on any tour.

Champions Tour: Mark Wiebe birdied the 18th hole to force a playoff and beat Corey Pavin with a par on the second extra hole to win the Pacific Links Hawaii Championship in Kapolei. Wiebe (72) and Pavin (69) both finished at 11-under 205.
