Final Money, Points: 2018 Players Championship

Webb Simpson posted a final-round 73, but thanks to a seven-stroke lead after 54 holes it was good enough to win the PLAYERS Championship.

Simpson finished his final day at TPC Sawgrass with three birdies against two bogeys, along with a meaningless final-hole double bogey.

The win earned the 32-year old Simpson $1,980,000 and 600 FedExCup points, which moves him to No. 8 in the standings. He also picked up a hefty 80 Official World Golf Rankings points which will bump him to No. 20 (from 41) – his highest ranking since 2013.

Charl Schwartzel, Jimmy Walker, and Xander Schauffele tied for second and each took home a check for $821,333, along with 230 FedExCup points, and 35 OWGR points.

Finally, Justin Thomas fired a final-round 66 to jump to T11 and claim the world No. 1 ranking for the first time in his young career. The 25-year old Kentucky native holds a 9.18 average to Dustin Johnson’s 8.93. And despite a tough final hole for Jordan Spieth, the young star, and friend of Thomas, is now No. 3, swapping spots with another young superstar in Jon Rahm.
