McIlroy storms from 6 back to win FedEx Cup and $18 million
ATLANTA (AP) — Rory McIlroy is the FedEx Cup champion for the third time.
He stormed from a record-tying six shots behind to win the Tour Championship and capture the $18 million prize.
Scottie Schffler never trailed all week until the 70th hole.
He built the six-shot lead Sunday morning with four birdies in six holes to complete the third round. But he was never on his game and made only one birdie in a round of 73.
McIlroy shot a 66. He says winning felt even more significant because of the tumultuous year caused by Saudi-funded LIV Golf.
