ATLANTA (AP) Jim Furyk capped off a wild day in the rain with a bunker shot worth $10 million.

In a FedEx Cup that came down to the final hole Sunday in the Tour Championship, Furyk nearly holed a bunker shot and knocked in the 2 1/2-foot par putt to close with an even-par 70 and a one-shot victory over Luke Donald to capture the biggest payoff in golf.

Donald, who chipped in from 100 feet for birdie on the 17th hole to stay in the game, was waiting in the scoring trailer when Furyk stood in a bunker. A bogey would mean a sudden-death playoff for the FedEx Cup.

When he tapped in his par with cap turned backward, Furyk plucked the ball out of the hole and fired it over the grandstands behind the 18th green at East Lake.

He earned $1.35 million for winning the tournament, and $10 million from the FedEx Cup.
