Club spotlight: When Rory McIlroy won the Deutsche Bank Championship, it marked his first win on the PGA Tour in 15 months. His next win didn’t take so long. The four-time major champion won the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup with a final-round 64 at East Lake G.C.

Key to McIlroy’s victory was his approaches into the greens as he ranked second in greens in regulation and fourth in proximity to the hole. Helping both those statistics was a hole out for eagle from 137 yards on the par-4 16th hole. The shot was struck with a Nike Engage wedge and marked the longest hole-out McIlroy has had on the PGA Tour in more than three years.
