Henrik Stenson won the Wyndham Championship on Sunday in Greensboro, N.C., closing with a 6-under 64 for a one-stroke victory in the final event of the PGA Tour regular season.
The 2013 FedEx Cup champion finished at 22-under-par 258 at Sedgefield Country Club, breaking the course's 72-hole record set by Carl Pettersson in 2008 and matched last year by Si Woo Kim.
He earned $1,044,000 and 500 postseason points for his first victory since the 2016 British Open. He took control with four birdies in a five-hole stretch of the back nine.
"It's certainly a good time to start firing," Stenson said. "We know the kind of damage you can do in the playoffs.
"If you get hot and keep on playing well, you have a chance to challenge."
Ollie Schniederjans shot a 64 to finish second.
The top 125 players on the money list are eligible for the playoffs, which begin Thursday at the Northern Trust. Geoff Ogilvy, Martin Flores, J.J. Henry, Harold Varner III and Rory Sabbatini played their way into the top 125 this weekend.
