At one point during the final round of the Tour Championship, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth were tied for the lead in the FedEx Cup points -- which would have resulted in a sudden-death playoff. Thomas happened to catch that on a giant scoreboard."I think I laughed when I saw it,'' he said. "I thought honestly, this probably will happen and the golf world will completely blow up and lose its mind if Jordan and I were in a playoff for the FedEx Cup. I don't think anybody would have known what to do with themselves.''

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Prior to this PGA Tour season, Justin Thomas made a list of goals for himself. After winning five titles and claiming the FedEx Cup, he reached nearly all of them. On Sunday evening, he showed off the entire list.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Justin Thomas: first player since Tiger Woods in 2009 to win FedExCup Playoffs without winning the TOUR Championship (Phil Mickelson won the 2009 TOUR Championship).

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

As the final round of the Tour Championship is underway, 11 of the 16 players who are competing in the Presidents Cup next week (11 U.S., 5 International) are outside of the Top 10 -- including the bottom 5 in a 30-player field.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

This time caddie "Johnny Long Socks" didn't have to worry about Paul Casey getting to the course too early. As good aa a Tour Championship win would be, having a new baby at home is even better.

How will Paul Casey make sure he doesn't try too hard on Sunday to win the Tour Championship?

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

You wanted to be in the lead with a chance to win the Tour Championship Paul Casey... What's it like being there and how is it different than trying to come from behind?

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

Jordan Spieth will need to watch the scoreboard and go low Sunday if he is to win his second FedEx title in three years. A 69 left him eight strokes back of leader Paul Casey and in a tie for 13th, meaning Spieth is essentially playing for the FedEx title only. He needs to at least get into the top 5 to have a realistic chance. And if he can move into the top 3 the outcome will be interesting and all based on what others do.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Why is a rookie Xander Schauffele playing so well this week in Atlanta? More importantly, how's he gonna sleep now that he's got a realistic shot at winning the title? And a little dig at Kevin Kisner!

play1:28

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Xander Schauffele is probably going to win Rookie of the Year on the PGA Tour but he had no idea just how much cash he was playing for this week at the Tour Championship.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

I spoke with Kevin Kisner briefly after his third-round 64 at the Tour Championship -- briefly, because he was racing to nearby Charlie Yates golf course to catch a helicopter, where he'll take a 25-minute ride to Athens for the Georgia football game against Mississippi State. He said setting a quick pace around the course didn't necessarily help his score, but he was happy about a round that got him into serious contention for the tournament title. And he was just as happy about being on the Bulldogs' sideline for the game Saturday night.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

There's a reason they call this place "Hot-Lanta" Every pro I spoke with about the key to playing the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta said rest and hydration were at the top.

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

Expect this to be noted more than a few times if Justin Thomas stays in contention. With a victory, he would become the first player to win six times on the PGA Tour -- including a major -- in a season since Tiger Woods in 2007. Woods also did it in 2006, 2000 and 1999. Vijay Singh accomplished the feat in 2004. They are the only players to do so in the last 20 years.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

If you asked every caddie at the Tour Championship if they rather have a courtesy car or indoor plumbing, the vote wouldn't even be close.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Kevin Kisner put out on Twitter Friday that he needed a helicopter ride from the Tour Championship to Athens, GA so he could go to the Georgia vs. Mississippi State game. I asked him this morning if he had gotten that ride and he said, "Yeah, I did!" Then I asked if there was an extra seat so I could go too. He gave a sly grin and said, "There's an extra seat... but the helicopter has a weight restriction." Everybody's a comedian!

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

The five International members of the Presidents Cup team playing in the Tour Championship all began the third round outside the top 10 -- which may or may not mean anything next week at Liberty National. Jason Day, Adam Hadwin, Hideki Matsuyama, Marc Leishman and Jhonattan Vegas will represent the Internationals next week. Matsuyama, Leishman and Vegas were outside the top 20.

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson are paired Saturday during the third round of the Tour Championship and the two players who combined have spent a majority of the year atop the FedEx Cup standings. But they need to make a move today to get back into contention for the top prize. Although they are just four strokes back of leaders Justin Thomas, Paul Casey and Webb Simpson, they are tied for 15th, with a slew of players in the mix. As projected right now, they would finish fourth and fifth, respectively, in the FedEx standings.

Mark Schlabach ESPN Senior Writer 

When you're three shots off the lead at the Tour Championship, but have equally pressing concerns on Saturday.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

If Paul Casey get to the golf course too early Saturday, his caddie will tell him off... again! Trying to win the Tour Championship might be more about rest and how not to be bored off the course. I'm having way too much fun.

"Wait, you're not ALLOWED to practice after the round?" Paul Casey tells me he couldn't practice after Friday's round even if he wanted to. All because of his caddie "Johnny Longsocks".

NBA player Kent Bazemore was all-in watching Steph Curry play in the Web.com Tour event and knows why he was able to play so well. "Baze" also has one pro golfer he hopes to one day tee it up with, keep it in the family per se.
