2014 FedEx Cup: For Rory McIlroy, FedEx Win Is About Legacy More Than Loot

Rory McIlroy has reached an altitude where it's safe to turn on all electrical and portable devices, but the captain has asked that you remain seated with your seatbelt firmly secured. The turbulent ascent of McIlroy's game through the first three legs of the FedEx Cup playoffs has calmed and, it appears, he's set to soar far above and beyond the rest of this Tour Championship.

While the prospect of earning a $10 million bonus after this week's Tour Championship finale is tantalising, Rory McIlroy says he is much more motivated by the chance to win the PGA Tour's FedExCup trophy for the first time. The Northern Irish world number one has already enjoyed a brilliant 2014 campaign, clinching two major titles among four wins worldwide, and has now set his sights on claiming playoff honours on the U.S. circuit after a season-long race.
