20 year old Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland, wins Quail Hollow

compiled from staff, wire and PGA Tour reports

Rory McIlroy (pga)

Rory McIlroy was the unexpected winner on Sunday at the Quail Hollow Championship which made him the youngest PGA Tour winner since Tiger Woods. But he almost didn’t make it to Sunday or even Saturday.

The 20-year-old from Northern Ireland was on the verge of missing his third cut in a row. He was two shots over the cut line with three holes to play late Friday afternoon when he fearlessly hit a 4-iron from 206 yards into the breeze and  right over the water to 6 feet for an eagle. He made the cut on the number.

McIlroy shot the lowest round each of the last two days at Quail Hollow, and the  final round was very spectacular. Playing with the final five holes in 5 under, and finishing with six 3s on his card, he set the course record with a 10-under 62 for a four-shot victory over Masters champion Phil Mickelson.

McIlroy finished in style, rolling in a 40-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole and  thrusting his fist in the air.

Tiger Woods was 20 years and 10 months when he won his first PGA Tour event in Las Vegas in Las Vegas in 1996.

McIlroy’s win capped a big Sunday for two of the golf game’s brightest young stars, the next Tiger Woods in the making. Earlier in the day, 18-year-old Ryo Ishikawa became the first player on the major tour to shoot a 58 in winning on the Japan Golf Tour.

McIlroy displayed  awesome golf skill  that he simply outplayed veterans Phil Mickelson and Angel Cabrera on the back nine.

The 20-year-old finished at 15-under-par 273 and won $1.17 million.
