McIlroy Caps It Off With a Win

By November 25, 2012

Follow me on:

It's been a great year for Rory McIlroy in 2012. On Sunday, he capped it off in style with a win at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, the season-ender on the European Tour.

McIlroy began the final round tied with Luke Donald, but he ran away from Donald, shooting 66 to Donald's 71. It was Justin Rose who gave McIlroy a run for the money with a blistering 62 that gave Rose the lead at one point. But in the end, McIlroy won at 23-under 265, two better than runner-up Rose.

The more than 1 million payoff pads McIlroy's already European Tour-leading money total. So in 2012, McIlroy won the PGA Tour and European Tour money titles; he won the PGA Championship; he won two Euro Tour tournaments and four PGA Tour events.

Or, as his buddy Graeme McDowell tweeted following the conclusion in Dubai:
"World's number one player, PGA tour number one, European number one #anyquestions"

No, no questions at all. Rory is the man in golf.
