LAST YEAR: Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland came from three shots behind in the final round, closing with an 8-under-par 64 and to get into a playoff with Kevin Chappell and Ryan Moore. McIlroy then won the event with a 15-foot birdie putt on the fourth extra hole to claim the FedExCup. McIlroy’s closing run included a hole-out eagle from 137 yards on the 16th hole and a birdie at No. 18, when he blasted out of a bunker to within 2 feet. Moore also finished with a 64, while Chappell had a 66. Dustin Johnson led the point standings heading into the finale and would have taken the Cup with a victory at East Lake. He was tied for the lead with Chappell entering the final round, but he finished with a 73 to tie for sixth.
