Rory McIlroy won the 2016 FedEx Cup, and he earned it in a drama-filled final round at the Tour Championship on Sunday with more at stake than just the tournament title.

He prevailed in a three-way sudden-death playoff against Ryan Moore and Kevin Chappell at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

According to Golf Channel, McIlroy needed to win the tournament to become the FedEx Cup champion; otherwise, Dustin Johnson, who entered the event in first place in the standings, would have accumulated the most points.

The PGA Tour shared a replay of McIlroy's victorious putt on the fourth playoff hole:



The FedEx Cup offered $35 million in bonus money, and McIlroy took home the $10 million top prize, per the PGA Tour's official website.

ESPN Stats & Info noted Sunday marked his first Tour Championship win and the first FedEx Cup title in his career.

Here are the final FedEx Cup standings, courtesy of the PGA Tour's official website:



McIlroy's title was a testament to his consistency throughout the FedEx Cup playoffs after an inconsistent PGA Tour season.

The top 125 players qualified for The Barclays, which was the first of four playoff tournaments. The top 100 then made the Deutsche Bank Championship, and the top 70 advanced to the BMW Championship. From there, the top 30 remaining players advanced to the Tour Championship, with their points being reset.

Here is a look at the points distribution, per the PGA Tour's official website:



Patrick Reed won The Barclays, but McIlroy made significant strides toward securing the title when he won the Deutsche Bank Championship.
