Rory McIlroy Wins TOUR Championship and FedExCup With Stealth Plus Driver and TP5x Golf Ball

CARLSBAD, Calif. (Aug. 28, 2022) – Rory McIlroy became the first player in FedExCup History to win the season long trophy three times. McIlroy relied on his Stealth Plus 9.0° driver and TP5x golf ball to seal the come-from-behind victory to win the TOUR Championship and FedEx Cup at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta by one stroke at 21-under par (67-67-63-66). The 6-stroke final round comeback by McIlroy is the largest in TOUR Championship history.

The win marks McIlroy’s third of the 2021-22 season and second with his Stealth Plus driver. McIlroy was lethal with his driver during the final round with nine drives over 300-yards on Sunday, including a 342-yard drive to the left side of the fairway on the 18th hole.

Rory’s TP5x golf ball and Spider X Hydro Blast putter came in clutch on the pivotal par-3 15th where McIlroy electrified the crowd with a 31-foot birdie putt to push him to a tie for the lead. Down the stretch, McIlroy used his Milled Grind 3 wedge and Spider X to secure an epic par save on the 16th, made a two-putt par on the 17th and par on the 18th to finish off the win.
