FedEx Cup trophy facts: Size, weight, history, namesake and more


The FedEx Cup trophy, awarded each year, along with $10 million, to the winner of the PGA Tour's season-long eponymous points competition, has been given out since 2007. It's become one of golf's most important trophies, developing a legacy all its own.

The FedEx Cup trophy is created by Tiffany and Co. in Rhode Island, and they talk about six months each to make. It's a sterling silver spun cup, 15 inches in diameter. The cup is balanced on a solid titanium golf ball, which sits on an eight-sided base that has the FedEx Cup logo. The wide handles are an homage to the arc of the golf swing, making perfect impact with the base ball.

The permanent trophy is 21.5 inches tall and weighs 33 pounds, complete with an 8.5-inch-tall wooden base that has eight sterling-silver panels for the engraved names of FedEx Cup champions. There are enough spots for 48 champions.

The winner gets their own trophy each year, coming in at 13.25 inches tall, engraved with their name by one of four Tiffany and Co.'s master engravers.
