The FedEx Cup's Most Memorable Moments\nThe PGA Tour's new venture was still searching for respect at TPC Boston, despite an emotional victory by Steve Stricker in the first-ever playoff event (Tiger Woods' absence didn't help things). But a Tiger vs. Phil final-round battle in the next tournament gave the playoffs a much-needed spark. The showdown came down to the final few holes and Mickelson edged Woods. For the time being. . . \nIt was only fitting that Tiger Woods won the first FedEx Cup title in runaway fashion. Despite skipping the first-ever playoff event, Tiger gave fans their share of thrills over the last two playoff events. Woods carded an unfathomable 54 birdies over eight rounds at the '07 BMW Championship and the Tour Championship, without any rounds higher than 67. Despite a third-round 60 from Zach Johnson, Tiger held on for his second Tour Championship victory.\nThis may have been the most exciting playoff of the Playoffs. Not known as a boss of the moss, Vijay Singh made one of the most clutch putts of his career in this event at Ridgewood CC. Sergio Garcia had just nailed a 27-foot birdie putt on the first hole of the playoff to put the pressure on Singh, and proceeded to blow a kiss to Nick Faldo in the CBS TV tower. Singh had the last laugh, though, as he rolled a 26-footer to extend the playoff he would win on the next hole. Not surprisingly, Vijay didn't blow any kisses to any television announcers.\nHeath Slocum's career-defining win at Liberty National proved to be just as memorable as some of the players' criticism of the Jersey City course's maiden tour appearance. Slocum made a 20-foot par putt on the 72nd hole to hold off Tiger Woods, Steve Stricker, Ernie Els and Padraig Harrington by one. Tiger had a chance to post the same score as Slocum (who came into the week ranked 124th out of 125 golfers) but shockingly missed a seven-foot birdie putt on the final hole. He struggled on the unfamiliar greens all week, and left the golf course with a bitter taste in his mouth. We know one thing, Slocum didn't mind one bit.\nThere have been many moments in Tiger Woods' career where he's pulled off something that has made our jaws drop. Another one of those highlights came at the par-5 9th hole in the third round of the '09 BMW. Tiger's second shot couldn't have been played much better -- a 3-wood that rolled around the length of the green and onto the fringe before settling inside 12 feet. He'd make the eagle putt and finish off a round of 62, setting a Cog Hill course record and propelling him to a second FedEx Cup title.\nIt may not have been a check for $10 million, but Phil Mickelson was still thrilled to take down his rival, Tiger Woods, in the season's final event. Lefty entered the final round trailing the World No. 1 by three shots, but caught him with a final-round 65. It was also meaningful for Mickelson to get back in the winner's circle following a tough spring in which his mother and wife were diagnosed with cancer. Of course, despite the victory, it was Woods who clinched a second FedEx Cup title. He remains the only player to accomplish that feat.\nThe image of Jim Furyk fist-pumping in the rain with his hat turned backward at East Lake may not be one of golf's most iconic moments, but it's certainly one of the most memorable in FedEx Cup Playoff history. Furyk brought a one-stroke lead into the par-3 18th hole, and looked to be in jeopardy of losing grasp of both the tournament and the FedEx Cup with a wayward tee shot. But the Pennsylvania native grooved his 50-foot bunker shot to within three feet, tapped in for par, and held off Luke Donald for the win. I think we all would have endured the rain for $10 million, right?\nA playoff with the Tour Championship on the line is stressful enough. But what about a playoff for the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus that comes with it? That's the situation Bill Haas and Hunter Mahan found themselves in, and it certainly looked like Mahan would come away the big winner when Haas' approach on the second sudden-death hole found the water. But with the ball only partially submerged, Haas splashed it out to within three feet to save par. Another par on the next hole made him the most unlikely winner in the five-year history of the PGA Tour's postseason -- and a very rich man.\nA chunked approach shot on the 72nd hole cost Horschel the Deutsche Bank title, but he came roaring back. Horschel won both the BMW and Tour Championships to claim the FedEx Cup title and become the lowest-ranked player (he was 69th in the FedEx Cup standings entering the Barclays) to earn golf's biggest bonus. We're also pretty sure he wore the boldest pants of any champion in East Lake's history.\nA couple weeks removed from winning his first major title at the PGA Championship, Day shot a final-round 62 at the Barclays to win his first FedEx Cup event by five shots. Three weeks later, he opened with a 61 at the BMW Championship and cruised to another five-shot romp. The dominant display took the Aussie to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time and even caused a player-of-the-year debate on the PGA Tour. That is, until. . . \nJordan Spieth finished off a campaign for the record books in style by winning the FedEx Cup finale and leaving no doubt as to whom the PGA Tour's Player of the Year Award would go. Just a couple months after turning 22, Spieth became the youngest winner of the playoffs with his four-shot win at East Lake. Spieth set a tour record for on-course earnings ($12,030,465) and that doesn't include the FedEx Cup's $10 million payout. Not a bad bonus for a year in which he had already claimed his first two majors.
