RORY MCILORY WINS TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP
Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy won the Tour Championship for a second time to secure the FedEx Cup title.
McIlroy, 30, carded a final-round 66 to finish on 18 under par, four shots clear of second-placed Xander Schauffele and five ahead of third-round leader and world number one Brooks Koepka in Atlanta.
He pockets $15m (£12.2m) – a prize fund he has previously questioned.
“To play like that alongside Brooks and win, it’s awesome,” said McIlroy.
The world number two, who was beaten by Tiger Woods during the final round of the 2018 Tour Championship and succumbed to Koepka on the last day of the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational last month, added: “I didn’t enjoy that walk last year like everyone else did, I played terribly.
“Going up against the number one player in the world today, he got one over on me in Memphis and I wanted to sort of try to get some revenge today.
“It’s amazing how different things can be in a year.”
American Koepka had held a one-shot lead after a weather-delayed third round at East Lake Golf Club, during which six people were injured after two lightning strikes.
But he hit a double bogey on the seventh hole and carded three further bogeys on the back nine to finish in a tie for third with compatriot Justin Thomas.
England’s Paul Casey finished fifth on nine under par, while compatriot Tommy Fleetwood finished tied 16th on one under.
