Head to Head: McIlroy vs Scheffler

The most tumultuous season in PGA Tour history climaxed at East Lake in what many will regard as a fitting fight for the top spot. The Sunday duel between Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy at the TOUR Championship saw two of the most significant players in golf this year go head to head for the tournament, the FedEx Cup title and a cool $18 million. It was the player who dominated the second quarter of the season and went to No. 1 in the world against the PGA Tour’s on- and off-course leader and most reliably excellent performer. McIlroy came out on top but as we show below, there was precious little to choose between them across the campaign.
