Speith wins FedEx Cup – and a big pay cheque

GolfAmerican Jordan Spieth  has earned £7.5m  for himself in one weekend.

His four shot victory at the Tour Championship in Atlanta also won him the FedEx Cup - with the prize money from both combined resulting in the huge payout. Rory McIlroy finished ten shots adrift of the winner.

Spieth's also the new world number one.

Meanwhile, Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee won the Porsche European Open in Germany. Graeme McDowell was the best of the Irish.
