Papa's got a brand new bag, and it's filled with $11.44 million.
Father-to-be Billy Horschel closed out a historic run in the FedEx Cup playoffs on Sunday, winning the Tour Championship at East Lake for his second consecutive win and, in the process, claiming the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bounty.
Horschel shot a final round of 2-under 68 to beat Rory McIlroy (71) and Jim Furyk (69) by three shots to win his third PGA Tour title. Furyk had opportunities to make Horschel sweat the final few holes, but a pair of closing bogeys on the 71st and 72nd holes gave the Florida Gator the breathing room to make it an easy finish.
Chris Kirk, who entered the week at No. 1 in the reset FedEx Cup standings, finished tied for fourth place with Justin Rose and Jason Day, locking up the runner-up spot in the final standings.
Horschel entered the playoffs ranked 69th, making him by far the worst-ranked player through the regular season to go on to win the FedEx Cup. Brandt Snedeker was 19th entering the 2012 playoffs.
Over the course of the playoffs, Horschel, who missed the cut at The Barclays, has earned $13.48 million, more than double his prior PGA Tour winnings.
