Rory McIlroy Wins at Quail Hollow
Rory McIlroy has won his first PGA Tour event in record style.
The 20-year-old from Northern Ireland rolled in a 40-foot birdie putt on the final hole Sunday to set the course record with a 10-under 62 and win the Quail Hollow Championship.
McIlroy, who celebrates his 21st birthday on Tuesday, becomes the youngest PGA Tour winner since Tiger Woods in 1996. And he is the first player in four years to win after making the cut on the number.
The finish was unforgettable. McIlroy played his final five holes in 5 under, including a 5-iron to 3 feet for eagle on the 15th hole that gave him the lead for good. It was the second victory of his young career, and his first in America.
