Fitzgerald look down the fairway before McIlroy tees off from the first hole during the final round of The Barclays golf tournament in Farmingdale, N.Y.. McIlroy didn't have to check his bank account to know that his FedEx Cup bonus had been deposited. His caddie, J.P. Fitzgerald, informed him with a text message that a 'tsunami' had hit his account. McIlroy paid him a bonus of just over $1 million. "I think his words were, 'A tsunami just hit my bank account, so thank you very much,'" McIlroy said Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2016, on the eve of the HSBC Champions. (AP Photo/Kathy Kmonicek)
