New Number One?

By Robert James


As much as he later said he enjoyed being part of and witness to history a year prior at East Lake, Rory McIlroy didn’t much relish that final-hole walk. Fans rushing past him. That chanting and singing and hollering for someone else. The fleeting fear of being trampled.


It was a hollow feeling, one made worse by knowing McIlroy had far from his best stuff in the final round of the Tour Championship in 2018, when Tiger Woods reveled in his first victory in five years.


That was hardly the case on the final day of the 2019 PGA Tour season.


In another high-intensity battle, this one with the reigning PGA Tour player of the year Brooks Koepka, it was McIlroy who prevailed, beating back all challengers, shooting the lowest 72-hole score, and erasing all doubt about who is the FedEx Cup champion.


He also had his own final-hole coronation, not quite at the same level as the one he saw with Woods in 2018, but one that was quite satisfying nonetheless.
