ATLANTA – Brooks Koepka proved himself human after all in the final round at the Tour Championship on Sunday when he was comprehensively outplayed by winner Rory McIlroy in Atlanta.
Four weeks after schooling McIlroy in the final round at the WGC-St. Jude Invitational, the northern Irishman got his revenge and then some at East Lake.
McIlroy shot four-under 66, six strokes better than Koepka, to clinch the tournament and the $15 million payout as FedEx Cup season-long champion.
“Just one of those days where you don't feel comfortable,” world number one Koepka told reporters after finishing equal third, five shots behind McIlroy.
“This week, just didn't get it done. I don't think I was going to beat Rory today, even if I had it.”
