Horschel caps amazing run with FedEx Cup

The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) Billy Horschel capped off the best three weeks of his career by winning the FedEx Cup and a $10 million bonus.

Horschel pulled away from self-destructing Rory McIlroy early and held off Jim Furyk late. He closed with a 2-under 68 for a three-shot victory in the Tour Championship and the biggest Sunday payoff in golf.

Horschel's career earnings were $4.5 million coming into the year. He was No. 69 when the playoffs began a month ago no one had ever won the FedEx Cup starting lower than No. 19.

It all changed in three weeks. Horschel was runner-up in Boston, a winner in Denver and cashed in big in Atlanta.

The only boos he heard all day was doing the Gator chomp walking off the green in Georgia.
