FedEx Cup champions

The FedEx Cup was first contested in 2007 and, over the course of its short history, has created a fun and exciting way to end the PGA Tour season.

The format has changed three times over the years, remaining the same since 2009, but the changes are yet to produce a repeat champion. Tiger Woods is the only player to win the FedEx Cup twice, while Brandt Snedeker and Jordan Spieth are the only defending FedEx Cup champions to qualify for the Tour Championship -- and a chance to repeat -- in the year after winning the FedEx Cup.

The FedEx Cup champion earns $18 million for taking the season-long series, including $17 million in cash and $1 million deferred.

From 2007-2018, the FedEx Cup winner won $10 million, with the total payout of $35 million to the top 150 players in the final FedEx Cup standings. Starting in 2019, the FedEx Cup winner took home $15 million from a total bonus pool of $60 million. Eventually, that figure jumped to $18 million to the champion.
