The PGA leaderboard at the TOUR Championship in Atlanta was led by last week’s winner heading into Round 4 on the schedule today, but the hottest name on the PGA Tour was tied alongside him. With nine players within four shots of the lead, today’s final round was wide open for the taking. In the end the winner was an increasingly familiar name on the PGA Tour.
Billy Horschel and Rory McIlroy were currently tied atop the PGA leaderboard at nine under for the tournament when the day began. But it was Hoerschel who pulled away while McIlroy crashed and burned. Hoerschel was the winner at eleven under for the tournament, with Jim Furyk and McIlroy three back at eight under. Chris Kirk, Justin Rose, and Jason Day finished at seven under. Tour favorites Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods are not participating this weekend.
The next stop on the PGA Tour schedule is the Ryder Cup beginning on Thursday September 25th at Gleneagles Golf Club in Perthshire, Scotland.
