Jordan Spieth has won the Tour Championship to claim the FedExCup, bumping him back up to golf’s world number one ranking at Jason Day’s expense.

Australia’s Day finished third in the FedEx Cup standings, but his short-lived reign at number one ended as he slipped to number two in the world.

Day fired a final-round 68 to finish in a tie for 10th place at the Tour Championship, eight shots behind Spieth, who finished at 9-under-par overall after carding a 69 for the round.

Spieth capped a brilliant season in sensational style, scoring a four-shot victory at East Lake Golf Club for his fifth win of the season, including the Masters and US Open.

Spieth and his caddy both add up the figures Jordan Spieth’s caddie earned five times as much as Tiger Woods did on the golf course in 2015.

Typically, a bagman earns five percent of the player’s earnings for making a cut in a tournament, and that jumps to 10% for finishing in the top 10.

The 22-year-old Texan made $22m (£15m) this year, with caddie Michael Greller banking $2.14m, excluding bonuses.

This term, Spieth triumphed in the Masters, the US Open, the Valspar Championship, the John Deere Classic, and the Tour Championship, which earned him $10m for winning the FedEx Cup.

Greller, a former maths and science school teacher, took home roughly the same figure as Phil Mickelson. Greller has certainly made the right choice now. No doubt both will have it all figured out for the foreseeable future - what a great team!

Watson refuses Hall of Fame entry Tom Watson has refused to be inducted into the PGA of America’s Hall of Fame because of the way the organisation handled the sacking of Ted Bishop.

Former PGA president Bishop was removed from office after he responded to Ian Poulter’s criticism of 2008 Ryder Cup captain Nick Faldo by calling him a “lil girl”.

“While I was very flattered by PGA of America president (Derek) Sprague’s honouring me to be inducted into PGA Hall of Fame, I couldn’t accept in good conscience because of how the PGA mishandled the firing of my friend and immediate past president of the PGA, Ted Bishop,” Watson wrote in a statement to Golf World.

The eight-time major champion was Bishop’s choice to lead the United States in the 2014 Ryder Cup, which ended in the US being thumped 16.5-11.5 at Gleneagles.

True to his word Watson stood by his friend.
