The crowd fell to a hush when pro golfer and six-time PGA Tour winner Matt Kuchar took to the green.

He had come to compete with the best of the best during the Sunday FedExCup Tour Championship at Atlanta’s famed East Lake Golf Club, the permanent home for this tournament since 2005. Fresh off his second win this year at the Memorial Tournament, Kuchar—the 6-foot-4 Georgia Tech grad now calls St. Simons Island, Ga., home—made a strong showing, while victory for both the championship and the cup ultimately went to Swedish golfer Henrik Stenson. This year, the seasonlong points competition was offering up $32 million in prize money alone for the playoff events, making the competition especially fierce. Photographer Fred Vuich was on the scene, and captured this moment of strong concentration and intense focus on the course.
