Justin Thomas signed for a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship to secure his first Web.com Tour win.

Thomas completed 72 holes at 6-under 278 and found himself tied with Richard Sterne. Thomas birdies the first hole of sudden death to clinch the title. In regulation, he circled three birdies to just two bogeys at The Ohio State University's Scarlet Course. The University of Alabama product ranked inside the top six in driving accuracy, driving distance, greens in regulation and putting average for the week. He ended the regular season safely inside the top 25 to clinch a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card, bagging five top-five finishes, but was never able to close the deal. With the confidence of this win in the Web.com Tour Finals in his back pocket, expect him to make an immediate impact on the PGA TOUR next season.

Jim Furyk fell just short with a 1-under-par 32-37=69 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, finishing three shots back in a share of second place.

Furyk came out blazing with a 3-under front nine to reach the turn at 10-under for the tournament and just one back of the leader. The back nine wasn't so kind, as three bogeys outweighed his lone back-nine birdie. Following the script of the entire 2013-14 season, Furyk contended for four straight rounds, but fell short in the end. This will go in the book as his fourth runner-up finish of the season and his fifth top 10 at East Lake.

Rickie Fowler put an end to his 2013-14 season with a 1-over-par 37-34=71 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, closing out at 5-under 275.

Fowler got off to a great start, circling birdies on two of the first three holes before hitting a wall. The nightmare began on the par-4 fifth where he three-jacked from inside five feet. Fowler followed it up with a splashed tee ball on the par-3 sixth, leading a double. On the following hole, he found himself hitting the lip of the bunker as he tried to escape a fairway bunker. These four strokes lost over a three hole stretch were too much to overcome in the end. Although, the season didn't end on a high note, it was Fowler's most productive season to-date, and he appears ready to make the leap to fantasy golf stardom.

Justin Rose had a wild ride around East Lake on his way to a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the TOUR Championship.

Rose wasn't settling for pars in the Playoffs finale as he circled five birdies but gave back four bogeys, as well. After rolling birdie bombs from 16'4" and 37'11" on back-to-back holes starting at the ninth, he looked poised to contend. Instead, he bogeyed two of the final eight holes to end the week at 7-under 273, four strokes shy of the winner, Billy Horschel. Rose earned another top 10 this week, his eighth of the season in 19 events played.

Rory Mcilroy stumbled to a 1-over-par 37-34=71 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, ending the week at 8-under 272, three shots behind winner Billy Horschel.

McIlroy played in the final pairing with eventual champion and held serve until the difficult par-3 sixth hole. The Ulsterman pulled out his 5-iron for the 224-yard approach and pulled it into the water, ultimately settling for a double bogey. Three holes later, an errant tee shot left him in trouble, leaving a punch out to the fairway as his only option leading to a bogey. McIlroy bounced back in the end, birdieing three of the last four holes, but the damage had already been done. After a season that included three victories, McIlroy will now rest up before the Ryder Cup in two weeks.

Jason Day carded a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the TOUR Championship final round.

The Aussie entered the week as an injury question mark, but ends the week as an exclamation mark. Starting the finale just three shots off the co-leaders, Day never got into true contention today. The big takeaway this week was his lack of big numbers, as he avoided putting a double bogey on his card all week. Day ended the week at 7-under 273 and ends the season with six top 10s, including a win in 15 events.
Sep 14 - 5:53 PM

Billy Horschel remained unfazed on his way to a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, securing his second consecutive victory and the FedExCup title.

Playing in the final pairing, Horschel got the best of his playing partner, Rory McIlroy. After McIlroy faded in the middle of the round, Horschel didn't get lackadaisical and kept the pedal to the metal. With Jim Furyk nipping at his heels, Horschel put a nail in the coffin with a 30'9" par save on the par-4 16th hole. Off the radar for most gamers entering the Playoffs, the champ turned up the heat starting at the Deutsche Bank Championship and rattled off 12 straight rounds in the 60s to finish the season playing the best golf of his career. In addition to the $1.44 million payout for winning the tournament, Horschel will receive a $10 million bonus as the eighth winner of the FedExCup.
Sep 14 - 5:45 PM

Ryan Palmer closed out the season with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 at the TOUR Championship.

Palmer remained hot this week but couldn't overcome two double bogeys in the end. After gaining 5.814 strokes-putting over the first 36 holes, he posted a -1.678 strokes gained-putting over the final two rounds. At 6-under 274, this will go in the books as his eighth top 10 of the season, a career high for Palmer.
Sep 14 - 5:30 PM

Adam Scott carded an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, finishing the week at 4-under 276.

The Aussie found himself just four strokes back before proceeding to double the par-4 17th hole. Early in the round, Scott holed out from 11 yards with the putter on the par-3 sixth and then toilet-bowled a birdie from 22'8" on the par-4 14th. The Aussie tallied 20 birdies on the week, but three double bogeys ultimately held him back. This week will mark his 10th top 10 of the season in just 17 events played.
Sep 14 - 5:20 PM

Chris Kirk fashioned a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, grabbing the early clubhouse lead at 7-under 273.

Kirk got the flat stick working early and often during his finale. It started with a 10'10" bogey save on the difficult par-3 sixth. He proceeded to roll in three more putts from outside ten feet before the round was over, none measuring more than 11 feet. It could have easily been one better, as his 21'6" putt on the par-4 17th missed by mere inches. Kirk will now sit and watch anxiously in the clubhouse, just in case his 7-under aggregate is good enough.
Sep 14 - 5:11 PM

Gary Woodland backed up a career-low round with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the TOUR Championship.

It was a tale of two halves this week for Woodland, as his first 36 holes included just two birdies offset with eight bogeys. He flipped the script the final two rounds, as he added seven birdies, two eagles, and just one bogey. Woodland ends the week at 4-under 276, good for his fifth top 10 of the season.
Sep 14 - 4:57 PM

Sergio Garcia coasted to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the TOUR Championship.

Starting from nine strokes behind the overnight co-leaders, the Spaniard remained calm, slowly chipping away at the lead. Highlights from the finale included a 13-yard hole out for birdie on the par-3 sixth and a 42'2" birdie putt on the par-4 12th hole. His 4-under 276 is good enough to earn him a second consecutive top 10, his 10th on the season.
Sep 14 - 4:53 PM

Brendon Todd was the first to submit a final-round red number with a 4-under-par 33-33=66 on Sunday at the TOUR Championship.

There was supposed to be a low number out there today at East Lake, but at the time of his signing, Todd was the only of six golfers done for the day and under par for the round. With nothing to lose, he got aggressive today and buried seven birdies. It helps when the putter gets red-hot as he drained seven putts from outside 12 feet, resulting in a 5.468 strokes gained-putting mark as he walked off the final green. He finished the week at 3-over 283. Gamers will remember 2014 as the year Brendon Todd broke out.
Sep 14 - 3:27 PM

Geoff Ogilvy kicked off the final round festivities at the TOUR Championship with a 3-over-par 38-35=73.

Ogilvy blitzed through East Lake by himself, playing his round in just under two and a half hours. The Aussie circled five birdies today but gave back more than his fair share along the way as he doubled the par-4 first as well as the par-4 17th holes. In the end, his 20-over 300 will be recorded as a last place finish, but just making it to East Lake qualifies it a successful season for Ogilvy. He will finish the season 29th in the FedExCup standings.

Greg Norman suffered an injury to his left hand while trimming branches with a chainsaw at his home in Florida on Saturday.

Norman was the first to report the incident on Instagram and was already home today. The Associated Press tracked down the Hall of Famer for details this morning. Apparently, the weight of a branch forced his left hand into the chainsaw's blade. "Thank God the blade wasn't running full speed or it would have taken my hand off," he said. "I handled everything as calmly as I could. There is no major damage. There is nerve damage, but no muscular damage. They fixed me up and here I am." Norman added that there is some tingling in his fingers and quipped, "At least I can still play tennis."
