Tour Championship 2021: Patrick Cantlay beats Jon Rahm to win FedEx Cup, $15 million grand prize, leaderboard, quotes. 

Patrick Cantlay and Jon Rahm will go head-to-head once again on the final day of the PGA Tour season.

Patrick Cantlay (-21) a one-shot victory by one stroke over Jon Rahm (-20) after shooting a 1-under 69 in the final round and sees him end the 2020-21 'super season' as FedExCup champion; 

 Patrick Cantlay came through a final-round tussle with Jon Rahm to win the FedExCup and its $15m jackpot prize payout  with Justin Thomas five off the lead in third place at the season-ending Tour Championship 2021 (from a massive $46 million purse)..

Tour Championship win is his sixth PGA Tour title and fourth of the season, as world No 1 Jon Rahm claims second spot.

 Holding off the best players in the world at a tournament like this -- That showed at the end for the eventual champion. After a breezy first 45 holes of the tournament, the last 27 were a bit of a war.

 Patrick Cantlay, 29,  earned a lot more than $15M prizes that comes with winning the 2021 FedEx Cup, talks, quotes.

 "The biggest thing is it's given me great perspective,'' said Cantlay,. 

"I think for a long time, everything just went great. Growing up, I felt like I got better and better in golf and life got better and better, and then it got as bad as it could have been. I felt as low as it could have been for a little while. 

"Coming out on the other side of that, I feel like I am a better person having gone through those dark days. But it gives me great perspective, and it makes me very grateful to be in the position I'm in, because it wasn't always a sure thing. I was very close to going back to school and putting golf behind me." 

"And so, I'm just very grateful to be where I am," he added, "and I'm so satisfied with all the hard work paying off."
