Spieth: I’m in a great position
Jordan Spieth is sitting pretty at the top of the FedEx Cup standings as the season culminates at this week’s TOUR Championship finale.
The world number two has been superlative in the playoff series, earning back-to-back solo seconds before following up with a T7 at Sunday’s BMW Championship.
That, combined with Spieth’s three wins for the season, gives him a narrow 340 point lead over friend Justin Thomas at the top of the standings. Added to that, he now heads to one of his favourite courses at East Lake.
“I’m comfortable at East Lake, and I’m in a great position,” the three-time major winner told Sky Sports.
“In 2014 and 2016 I remember being completely worn out by the time I got to the Tour Championship. There’s a lot on the line. It’s essentially a major after coming off a pretty hectic schedule in the last six or seven weeks.”

While Spieth finished ten strokes behind last week’s winner Marc Leishman on Sunday, he is taking much confidence from his final round where he shot a sizzling seven under 65.
“I was pumped to have the round I did on Sunday, to gain some momentum, to maintain the No 1 spot,” added the Texan.
“I was a little bit off at the start of the week in my striking. But I feel pretty close right now to where I was in the first two Play-Off events. Things feel good. If this were a major championship I’d be pretty pleased with how things are feeling.”
Also in the hunt for the FedEx Cup title at East Lake are world number one Dustin Johnson, Australia’s Leishman and Jon Rahm.
