Atlanta - Rory McIlroy produced the largest final-round comeback in Tour Championship history to beat world number one Scottie Scheffler by one stroke in Atlanta and then used the moment to sing the praises of the PGA Tour. McIlroy, who began the final round at East Lake six shots back of Scheffler, carded a four-under-par 66 to reach 21 under on the week at the PGA Tour’s season-ending event to capture his third FedExCup title and an $18 million first-place prize.
