Rory McIlroy entered the final round of today's FedEx Cup Tour Championship and overtook Scotty Scheffler by six strokes.
But one day longer than that and a Schaffler meltdown later, it was Rory holding the trophy.
McIlroy scored a 66 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta today, which is good for four-under and kept him at 21-under for the tournament.
He recorded six birdies and two bogeys, while a brutal front nine for Schaeffler ultimately ruined his opponent.
The victory at the FedEx Tour Championship was the third victory of Rory's career.
It was their sixth win in a FedEx Cup playoff event since 2012.
He is now the first golfer in history to win the FedEx Cup playoffs three times.
Hundreds of golf fans and organizations have come out to congratulate Rory on his tremendous achievement.
Many are praising him for being an important face of the PGA Tour:
Rory McIlroy's campaign in the 2021–22 PGA Tour ends with three wins, giving him 22 PGA Tour victories over his career.
It also marked the first time in McIlroy's career that he finished in the top 10 for all four golf majors.
He came close to winning the 2022 Masters, second only to Scotty Scheffler.
After finishing eighth at the PGA Championship and fifth at the US Open, McIlroy came in third at The Open.
Will next season be the year where Rory can put it all together and win his first Major since 2014?
