ATLANTA – Golf's two biggest stars shared the stage at East Lake with trophies that were meaningful in vastly different ways.

Phil Mickelson capped off a tumultuous summer at home with a spectacular rally from four shots behind Sunday, closing with 5-under 65 to win the Tour Championship for his first victory since his wife and mother were diagnosed with breast cancer.

Tiger Woods finished off another big year by winning the FedEx Cup for the second time in three years to collect the $10 million bonus. His hopes of winning the Tour Championship ended when he failed to make a birdie until the 15th hole, closing with 70.

It was dramatic end to the FedEx Cup, with three players having a chance at the big prize on the back nine.

Mickelson made sure the Tour Championship was his all along, shooting 31 on the front nine and playing without a bogey.
