An incredible finish to the PGA Tour season.

Rory McIlroy has won a three-way sudden death playoff to claim victory in the Tour Championship and also the overall Fed Ex Cup.

Former world number one McIlroy beat Americans Kevin Chappell and Ryan Moore in the playoff to pip Dustin Johnson for the Fed Ex Cup title.

After American Kevin Chappell was eliminated at the first hole, McIlroy and Ryan Moore played three more holes before McIlroy claimed the tournament win.

If McIlroy had lost the playoff, then Johnson, who finished tied sixth, would have won the Fed Ex Cup and the NZ$13.8m prize. Johnson still ended up taking away NZ$4.1m for second place in the standings.

McIlroy finished at 12-under after shooting a six-under 64 today.
