2011 Bill Haas wins the TOUR Championship - and with it the FedEx Cup - at the third hole of a sudden-death playoff with Hunter Mahan. The win, including the $10m. FedEx bonus, was worth a total of $11,440,000 to Haas, and although not strictly the winner's purse, was nevertheless the biggest ever payout for winning a tournament to date.
Haas' victory included an amazing recovery on the second sudden-death hole, the par 4 17th at East Lake GC, when his approach ran through into the water to the left of the green. Half of the ball remained above the water line and he literally 'splashed out' to within 3 feet to save his par and force the third extra hole, which he won with a par. (Watch Haas' shot here)
