Rory McIlroy won the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup in Atlanta on Sunday, collecting the biggest first prize in the sport, $15 million.

Northern Irishman McIlroy emphatically outduelled Americans Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele with a four-under-par 66 in the final round at East Lake.

He finished at 18 under par, four shots ahead of Schauffele to claim the season-long FedEx Cup points competition for the second time on the PGA Tour, after his 2016 win.
