McIlroy takes dominating role
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — With his win in the PGA Championship, Rory McIlroy has claimed the role of top player in men’s golf.
Just weeks after winning the British Open, the third of the four annual major tournaments, the native of Northern Ireland earned his fourth career Grand Slam title with a one-shot win over Phil Mickelson on Sunday. McIlroy has won the last three events he has entered, the British Open, last week’s Bridgestone Invitational and now the PGA.
In case you’re wondering, with those wins over the last two weeks the 25-year old has won over $3 million in purse money.
