7. BMW Championship

Carmel, Ind.

At the third and final playoff event leading up to the TOUR Championship, a who’s who of the planet’s best players showed up to vie for the $8 million purse. Once again, Rory McIlroy, who had won the previous week at the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, outlasted the field at soggy Crooked Stick to notch his fourth win of the year, clearly establishing himself as the Player of the Year. Rory’s final round 67 left him two shots clear of Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood and three ahead of Tiger Woods. Course designer Pete Dye, who owns a home along the 18th hole, couldn't have been too happy with the low scores, but he was on hand to shake Rory’s golden hand as he departed the green.
