Justin Thomas made a valiant effort at winning the Tour Championship on Sunday, making birdies on two of his last three holes to finish at 11-under 269.
His final-round four-under 66 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta ultimately would be one-stroke short of PGA Tour rookie Xander Schauffele, but it was enough to claim the FedEx Cup title and the $10 million that comes with it.
Russell Henley finished the Tour Championship in a tie for third with Kevin Kisner at 10-under 270, thanks to the low round of the day, a bogey-free five-under 65.
Despite taking a two-shot lead into the final round, Paul Casey was unable to close the deal, posting a three-over 73 to finish in fifth at nine-under 271.
Joining Spieth at seven under were Tony Finau and Jon Rahm, each making their first appearance at the Tour Championship.
