How much FedEx Cup champ Viktor Hovland and others made at the Tour Championship

Viktor Hovland bagged himself a whopping $18m for winning his first-ever FedEx Cup title with a clinical five-stroke victory at the Tour Championship at East Lake. 

Hovland, 25, closed with an exceptional 63 to see out a five-stroke win over course specialist Xander Schauffele, who has now finished either first or second four times in the Tour Championship since 2017. 

Schauffele takes home $6.5m

Hovland, who started the week on 8-under par in the staggered scoring start, finished the week on 27-under par. 

The Norwegian star now becomes the third-youngest FedEx Cup champion in history. 

Hovland's third win of the PGA Tour season bumps him up one place in the world rankings to fourth. 

Incredibly, Hovland was 46-under par during the FedEx Cup Playoffs, which was nine strokes better than Schauffele and 11 strokes better than Rory McIlroy

US Open champion Wyndham Clark continued his breakout season by finishing third on 16-under par.

That saw him earn $5m

An injured McIlroy battled his way to a respectable solo fourth place on 14-under par at the Tour Championship.

That saw him earn $4m

McIlroy was struggling with lower back pain for much of the week but he admits to "feeling better" as the week progressed. 

A number of golf fans were fuming McIlroy did not disclose his back injury during his Wednesday press conference. 

Earlier in the week, he hit a brutal shank and another errant shot that saw a golf fan get taken out by the top rope!

McIlroy will now rest up and head over to the DP World Tour to compete in both the Irish Open and BMW PGA before playing in the Ryder Cup

World No.1 Scottie Scheffler finished T6 and he made small change of $2m.

Jon Rahm had a week to forget down in T18 and it saw him walk away with $670,000.

The FedEx Cup champion in 2024 will earn $25m, up from $18m this season.
