TOUR Championship winners
Who won last year?
Rory McIlroy took home the 2022 TOUR Championship, besting Sungjae Im and Scottie Scheffler by a single stroke. He began the tournament at -4, as did Im. Scheffler began the tournament at -10, as he does again this year. McIlroy has something of a better advantage in 2023, starting out at -7 after two strong finishes in the first FedExCup events.
McIlroy also won in 2019. Dustin Johnson followed in 2020, and is not eligible to compete this year because of his LIV affiliation. Patrick Cantlay won in 2021. Both Johnson and Cantlay started the tournament at -10, the best starting score available, while McIlroy won at -5 or worse both times.
