Rory McIlroy finally won the FedEx Cup when he least expected it.
McIlroy was three shots behind with three holes to play Sunday in the Tour Championship. Nearly two hours later, he holed a 15-foot birdie putt on the fourth extra hole to win at East Lake in a playoff and claim the $10-million FedEx Cup bonus.
In its 10th year, the FedEx Cup never had a finish like this.
McIlroy won on the 16th hole, where his stunning rally began in regulation when he holed out from 137 yards for eagle and then made birdie on the final hole for a 64 to join a three-man playoff with Ryan Moore (64) and Kevin Chappell (66). Chappell was eliminated with a par on the first extra hole.
Rory Mcilroy will continue the momentum to the Ryder cup which begins on September 30th at the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota.

We wonder if he ever goes to the Trumps golf course.
In this episode Trade Analyst – Komal Nahta talks about ‘Freaky Ali’ movie review. This movie entertains the audience through its simplicity though the story is nothing new . The audience likes it because of Nawazuddin’s performance. The dialogues and screenplay of the movie are also weak .Some dialogues are funny which keep the public interested otherwise again it’s an okayish movie.
Golf carts haven’t changed much over the years. They look and feel the same. What if there was a way to improve the traditional golf cart concept and take away some of the limitations? That is what Bubba Watson and Oakley set out to do. They created the world’s first hovercraft golf cart. Using hovercraft technology, the BW1 is able to glide over any terrain, including grass, sand, and water.
These hovercraft feature a 65-horsepower engine capable of reaching speeds up to 50 mph, side-by-side seating for up to four passengers, a lift-up roof, room for two golf bags and sand bottles.
The Golf Cart Hovercraft, the BW1, YouTube video has earned more than 9 million views.
In the final round of The Barclays 2016, several players were in contention going into the final 9 holes but it was Patrick Reed who stood out amongst the pack to claim the first leg of The FedExCup Playoffs.
It was in January 2015 when he last won a fourth PGA Tour title at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. The wait for the trophy no. 5 was getting longer and frustrating for the highly rated American pro.
His win at the Bethpage State Park has not only have given him a lot of FedEx points but has also secured a place in the American Ryder Cup team.
The Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf ball are part of Titleist’s 2015 lineup and replace the 2013 models. Titleist updates the Pro V1 franchise every two years using feedback that they receive from golfers on and off the Tour.
The Pro V1 features a 3-piece golf ball construction, 352 dimple large core design while the Pro V1x features a 4-piece golf ball construction, 328 dimple dual-core design. Both feature a urethane cover and Titleist’s Alignment Integrated Marking (A.I.M.) sidestamp.
Here is a breakdown of differences in choosing between the two according to Titleist:
The 2015 Pro V1 seemed to sit down a bit quicker with chips around the green thanks to the softer cover. It was easier to get a little grab on the first bounce or too, but it still ran out well to the hole without abruptly hitting the brakes.
In general play, the 2015 Pro V1 seemed to have a stronger flight and better all round distance. After a few round of gameplay, one can easily notice the impact the 2015 version of these balls creates.
Slightly firmer feel and lower long game spin and launches higher with a steeper angle of descent than Pro V1.
The best way to describe the sound and feel from the 2015 Pro V1x is that in terms of ‘clickiness’ and feel, it is about the same as the 2013 Pro V1. It is noticeably better sounding than the 2013 Pro V1x and again it has a lot more control than the previous version with short chips.
Both Pro V1 and Pro V1x deliver extraordinary distance, the best scoring performance for all golfers, and long lasting durability, yet differ in feel, long game spin and flight.
