Jordan Spieth's Tour Championship triumph was the ideal exclamation mark to conclude a PGA Tour season that shows golf has moved into a new and exciting era.
And while this offers a very encouraging outlook, there are massive challenges for the European Tour to have any chance of capitalising as well as their American counterparts.
The lucrative play-offs were dominated by Jason Day and then Spieth. The series provided the perfect send-off to a stellar season.
These two players were the most prominent stars in the majors before fighting it out over the last month of the season. World number one status was also on the line.
This is surely the intoxicating scenario envisaged when the play-offs were launched eight years ago.
Spieth's victory at East Lake on Sunday capped a series more meaningful than a grubby dash for a $10m bonus.
