In addition to the $11.4 million in cash and deferred prizes Henrik Stenson collected on Sunday at East Lake, the FedEx Cup champion was also given a vintage Coke machine for his victory at the Tour Championship.

Stenson had said that he would reward some of his friends with similar Coke machines if he collected the Tour double in Atlanta, and PGA Tour member Jonas Blixt texted him a picture of himself holding a Coke bottle to remind the fellow Swede of his promise.

“I always keep my promises,” Stenson smiled on Sunday. “I’m going to keep the one I won here, but I think we can find some others. We can afford them.”
