Rory McIlroy held off world No.1 Scottie Scheffler to win the 2022 Tour Championship at East Lake.

In doing so, the Northern Irishman became the first player to win the FedEx Cup three times and, with it, cashed a cheque for $18million.

The victory was particularly significant in view of the PGA Tour’s ongoing battle with LIV Golf and McIlroy’s own ‘senior’ role in defending the tour against the Saudi-funded upstart.

“I believe in the game of golf,” said the 33-year-old following his win. “I believe in this tour. I believe in the players on this tour. It’s the greatest place in the world to play golf, bar none, and I’ve played all over the world. This is an incredibly proud moment for me, but it should also be for the PGA Tour.”

The Tour Championship brought an end to the 2021/22 PGA Tour season and saw a whopping $75million dished out amongst the 30 players who qualified for the finale in Atlanta.

Here’s how that dough was divided…
