The 2018-2019 season is officially in the books, and Rory McIlroy shined throughout the week and finished four strokes ahead of Xander Schauffele. Rory started the tournament 5 shots behind Justin Thomas, but after 54 holes, he trailed Brooks Koepka by one. A steady string of pars was finally broken with birdies on the 6th and 7th, and with Brooks struggling, Rory found himself ahead by one. He made pars on 8 and 9 to make the turn in 2-under 33 and 9 holes away from $15 Million. Two more birdies on the 12th and 13th opened up the lead to four, but bogeys on 14 and 15 cut the lead back to two. The key moment came on 16, where Rory made a 10-footer for par to maintain his lead. A birdie on 17 was followed by another on 18 to cap off a 4-under 66 and his second Tour Championship and FedEx Cup titles in four years. He joins Tiger Woods as the only two-time FedEx Cup Champions, and ends his season with three wins to bring his career total to 17.
The PGA Tour takes a three-week break, and will be back in action at A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier.
