Webb Simpson birdied the last two holes of regulation to tie the lead and defeated Tony Finau with a birdie on the first playoff hole to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open and vault to second place in the FedExCup point standings and the Wyndham Rewards Top 10. It was Simpson’s sixth-career victory. With the win, the 2011 Wyndham Championship winner jumped 13 spots in the standings. Justin Thomas finished tied for third and remained in first place.
Brooks Koepka claimed the $2 Million first-place bonus in the inaugural $10 million Wyndham Rewards Top 10 Bonus last season. The Wyndham Rewards Top 10 not only adds drama to the Wyndham Championship as the final event before the FedExCup Playoffs but also puts an even greater premium on excelling over the course of the FedExCup Regular Season.
The top-10 Regular Season finishers in FedExCup points following the Wyndham Championship – also sponsored by Wyndham Rewards – reap the benefits of the Wyndham Rewards Top 10. The regular season points leader earns $2 million, followed by $1.5 million for the runner-up with the 10th-place finisher earning $500,000.
