Rory McIlroy wins the FedEx Cup, the largest cash prize in the history of golf, at the Tour Championship



Rory McIlroy won the Tour Championship for the second time in four years on Sunday – and he's making the biggest cash out in golf history.

McIlroy passed Brooks Koepka and won the FedEx Cup and its $ 15 million prize.

A shot behind, McIlroy took the lead with a three-shot swing on No. 7 and was not caught by Koepka or Xander Schauffele.

McIlroy finished the tournament with a 4 under 66 score, a result that would have won the Tour Championship in every rating format. He finished four shots in front of Schauffele.
