Rory has won the FedEx Cup by winning the Tour Championship at East Lake after a blistering last round 64 put him into a play off with Kevin Chappell and Ryan Moore, after 3rd round leader & Fed Ex favourite Dustin Johnson's disappointing final round 73 saw the favourite fade away.
Rory dramatically eagled the 16th in regulation play (holing his 6-iron approach) and birdied the last on his way to a final-round 64 at East Lake, joining Ryder Cup hopefuls Kevin Chappell and Ryan Moore on 12 under.
Rory lipped-out on the first play off hole, joining Moore in making birdie as Chappell was eliminated with a par.
The world No 3 and Moore both completed the next two in regulation, before McIlroy holed a 15-footer at the fourth extra hole for the birdie needed to claim a second PGA Tour title of the season and leapfrog Johnson at the top of the FedExCup standings.
What you going to do when this happens?? Go on, Rory!!!!!
