    Spieth: 'Not really in control of my [FedExCup] destiny'

    ATLANTA – On Tuesday, Jordan Spieth wondered how Dustin Johnson endured last year’s finish at the Tour Championship. Johnson had begun the finale atop the playoff points list but finished in a tie for sixth place. He then had to wait through a playoff between Rory McIlroy, Ryan Moore and Kevin Chappell to see if he had won the FedExCup.

Intimidated? For sure. Double bogey on No. 1? Highly likely. Those admittedly are not the best thoughts to have as one prepares to play a world-class golf course. A few moments later I meet Dan Fireman, the club’s co-founder along with his father, Paul, who spent more than $250 million to build the course on what was a toxic dumping ground. One of my first questions is how the PGA Tour players keep from being overwhelmed by the views and the Statue of
