  • Rory McIlroy won the 2022 FedEx Cup and earned $18 million.
  • The 2022 FedEx Cup had a prize money pool of $75 million.

The 2021-22 PGA Tour season is in the books and it’s only fitting that Rory McIlroy, who has been the leading spokesman for the Tour this season, came out on top at the Tour Championship to win the season-long FedEx Cup.

It was a terrific season and ended with another great week of golf betting.

McIlroy trailed Scottie Scheffler by six shots heading into Sunday’s final round and shot a 66 to Scheffler’s 73 at East Lake to finish the week at 21-under. That was one shot ahead of Scheffler and Sungjae Im.

The 33-year-old made six birdies in the final round.

Due to the staggered scoring, Scheffler, who was No. 1 in the standings going into the week, started at 10-under, while McIlroy opened at 4-under.

For his win, McIlroy earned $18 million, which came from a bonus pool purse of $75 million for the season-long race. Scheffler and Im both earned $5.75 million.
