Rory McIlroy overcame a six-shot deficit to become the first golfer to win the FedEx Cup thrice. He went into the final round trailing top seed Scottie Scheffler. However, Scheffler went three-over 73. As a result, McIlroy won by a single stroke against the top seed and South Korean sensation Im Sung-jae.
According to sports betting solution sources, the six-shot recovery is the biggest final-round comeback in PGA Tour Championship history. It outclassed Camilo Villegas’ five-shot comeback in 2008.
McIlroy previously won the FedEx Cup in 2016 and 2019. However, his win last Sunday made him the only player to win the event thrice. According to sports betting software reports, McIlroy was thrilled to achieve something others haven’t done before.
McIlroy won $18 million in prize money. Also, it was his 22nd PGA Tour triumph, guaranteeing a victorious finish to an impressive season.
With victories at the CJ Cup and the Canadian Open, McIlroy reliably dazzled with ten top-10 outcomes across 16 tournaments. No place was this structure more obvious than at the majors, where McIlroy completed no more than eighth across the four major tournaments.
McIlroy finished in second place at the Masters in April. Also, he allowed the win to slip from his hands at the 150th Open Championship in July. McIlroy has been trying to win his fifth Majors event since he won the PGA Championship in 2014.
Compared to the 2019 season, when McIlroy won three Tour victories, caddy Harry Diamond said it was a fitting finish to the current season.
Although the PGA Tour season has ended, there are still more golfing tournaments across the globe. As a result, you can improve sportsbook profits by taking golf wagers.
