After a strong comeback, Rory McIlroy took the PGA Tour Championship title and pocketed $18 million in prize money.
Going into the fourth and final round, McIlroy was six shots behind top seed Scottie Scheffler. However, Scheffler blundered with a round of 73. With 66 strokes in the fourth round and previously only 63 strokes in the third round, McIlroy managed to catch up.
"It's a turbulent time for men's golf right now. I'm trying to defend what I think is the best place to play top-level golf at every opportunity," McIlroy said of his title win. The Northern Irishman is considered a great advocate of the PGA Tour. Several other top golfers have joined the Saudi Arabia-sponsored LIV tournament series and filed lawsuits against the PGA Tour after being suspended.
