A pictorial review of the last 30 days from around the world.
Justin Thomas finished second to Xander Schauffele despite burning down the back nine with a torrid finish that included three birdies in his last six holes. Thomas, who finished at 11 under, had a putt on the 18th that would have eventually gotten him into a playoff with Schauffele.
However, none of that really matters because Thomas’ second-place finish was enough to secure him the FedExCup trophy and a US$10 million bonus for taking the season-long race. Thomas beat out Jordan Spieth for first.
Thomas capped a five-win season by becoming the first golfer since Tiger Woods in 2009 to win the FedExCup without winning the Tour Championship (Phil Mickelson won it that year). He will unquestionably be the 2016-17 PGA Tour Player of the Year and has now earned just under $20 million total this season including the FedExCup bump.
