Canadian Open. The spectacular triumph of Rory McIlroy
In recent years, Rory McIlroy has often been claimed for failing to «press out» the rivals during the final rounds, which the Irish golfer often frankly failed. But on the final day of the RBC Canadian Open tournament we saw a completely different McIlroy, who left no chance for his pursuers, which allowed him to win a second victory of the season. For eighteen holes before the finish Rory shared the first line and finished the match with a difference of seven hits from the second place.
"Today I had a chance to knock out 59," said McIlroy, who won his sixteenth title on the PGA Tour. - I apologize for disappointing you. I walked seventeen holes successfully and walked ten times better than a par. On the second nine, even with two bogey, I collected four minuses, so it was also not bad. ”
Shane Lowry shared the second line with Webb Simpson, who is also collected fifteen minuses for a week. Matt Kuchar, who shared the lead the day before, was unable to perform better than a par and finished only fourth.
Together with Mcllroy, another famous golfer from Northern Ireland performed greatly. On the final hole, Graeme McDowell rolled up a nine-meter putt, which allowed him to save a par and stay in the final top-10, securing participation in the upcoming Open Championship major. Remember that this year the British major will return to Northern Ireland after a long break, where he last time happenned in the middle of the previous century.
