Watch: Rory McIlroy's Wonder Shot Made Things Seriously Interesting At Tour Championship
By PJ Browne Updated

Rory McIlroy moved to within one shot of the lead at the Tour Championship with an incredible eagle on the 16th at East Lake.

He ultimately ended up in a three-way playoff with Kevin Chappell and Ryan Moore and a chance to win the overall prize of the Fed Ex Cup.

McIlroy was on 9-under when his second from 138 yards landed within feet of the 16th hole and bounced in. His elation at the shot was clear.

A brilliant bunker shot, which nearly went in for an eagle, left the Northern Irishman an easy putt for birdie and a share of the lead on 12-under.

The drama ratcheted up a notch when Ryan Moore's birdie putt on the 18th somehow did not go in. If he had holed the shot, McIlroy would have been out of contention.
