ATLANTA (AP) Rory McIlroy believes his big season deserves a big finish. The Tour Championship is his last chance.

McIlroy already has won a pair of majors and a World Golf Championship this year. He is back to No. 1 in the world. He has wrapped up another PGA Tour money title. About the only feat left is to capture the FedEx Cup.

The trophy - along with a $10 million bonus - is up for grabs this week at East Lake. McIlroy didn't come close to winning the previous three FedEx Cup playoff events, though that doesn't matter. He is the No. 4 seed when the Tour Championship begins Thursday.

The top five seeds only have to win at East Lake to claim the FedEx Cup.
