The tenth version of the FedEx cup was the most exciting of all who have played which Sunday was experienced from beginning to end on the last lap-closing tournament of the season the tour Championship. American Dustin Johnson, who had a sensational 2016, winning the US Open, the Bridges tone and the third of the FedEx playoffs BMW stood as the huge favorite to lead the last lap out on Sunday.
Dustin just needed to be second or among the top eight but to win Rory McIlroy to clinch the check for 10 million dollars and the splendid tournament of the FedEx Cup. He started very well, with a birdie on the 3rd hole and then decline in 5, 6 and 8 with bogey’s yet another birdie at the 7. But they put things worse when he shot double bogey on the 12th hole. His compatriots Kevin Chappell and Ryan Moore helped him to McIlroy not end with the victory. Both played very well from tee to green. Chappell was with Dustin and Moore played with Rory.
However, McIlroy he not daunted. He fired birdies at 1, 6, 10 and 18 and an ‘eagle’ phenomenal on the par-4 hole 16. So, Dustin disappeared from the battle, but had his companions to defend him FedEx. They finished tied, McIlroy, Moore and Chappell. If Chappell or Moore won the tiebreaker, Johnson would be the champion. Rory had to fend for itself to win the Tour Championship and with it a bag of 10 million FedEx Cup prize, plus a US $ 1’530.000 of The Tour Championship.
The first playoff hole was the 18th a par 5. Chappell and Moore in the rough had to play good before the lake and McIlroy played a shot of those that only recently did Tiger woods’. He left the ball two meters for eagle and everything seemed to indicate that there would end things. Chappell went with par and Moore putt and chip achieved a birdie. Everything was ready for the celebration of McIlroy and the ball made him what golfers call a bow tie he grabbed the edge and turned it over to the hole without entering.
