Rory McIlroy carded an impressive six-under-par 65 to overturn a six shot deficit and win the Deutsche Bank Championship by two strokes from Paul Casey.
McIlroy had stormed into contention with a third round 66 but he was still six shots off the lead held by Casey at the start of Monday's final round.
Superb bunker play and some good work on the greens proved crucial as McIlroy overhauled Casey to win with a couple of shots to spare and end his 16 month title drought on the PGA Tour.
Birdies on the second and fourth sent him on his way and he picked up further shots at the seventh, eighth and ninth to reach the turn in 31 and into a share of the lead alongside Casey.
However, the Northern Irishman held the outright lead for the first time when he birdied the 12th before his advantage increased to two when Casey bogeyed the 11th.
After finding the rough and then a bunker, McIlroy gave one of his shots back but he got up and down from a greenside bunker for birdie on the 18th to leave him with a two shot lead.
Casey needed an eagle at the last to force a play-off, but he could only par the hole.
McIlroy was four over after the first three holes of the tournament and he admits he did not expect to end the week as champion.
"From three holes in - four over par - there were a lot of things going through my mind, and one of them was not winning this tournament," McIlroy said.
"So 69 holes later - I played some great golf and holed some great putts. I'm just really proud of myself, how I hung in there on the first day and then got some momentum on Saturday. Then I just went with it.
"It's nice to get that first win in the States this year and hopefully I can take this momentum into the next couple of weeks and ultimately the Ryder Cup."
The win sees McIlroy climb 34 places to fourth in the FedEx Cup standings behind Patrick Reed, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson.
