The Quail Hollow Championship was won by none other thanâ€¦
â€¦Rory McIlroy. McIlroy set a course record, by shooting a 10-under par, 62 on Sunday, breaking the previous course record of 64, shared by Kirk Triplet (2004), Bo Van Pelt (2006) and Rory Sabbattini (2007).
Just how did McIlroy achieve his 62?
He started off by paring the first-three holes, before birdying the fourth. Holes five and six were pared followed by three-consecutive birdies to finish the front-nine, 4-under par.
McIlroy continued to hit his mark on the back-nine, birdying holes 11, 14, 16 and 18 and he recorded an eagle on the par-5, 15th, to finish the back 6-under par. So, 4-under on the front and 6-under on the back, equals 10-under and his first PGA Tour victory.
The 20 year-old McIlroy, hails from Holywood, Northern Ireland and turned professional in 2007 after winning five tournaments as an amateur. McIlroy won his first professional tournament on the European Tour, the 2009 Dubai Desert Classic, defeating runner-up Justin Rose by one stroke.
Saturdayâ€™s Leader, Billy Mayfair
Heading into the final round Sunday, Billy Mayfair started the day in first place at 9-under par. Mayfair shot consecutive 68â€™s on Thursday and Friday to position himself at the top of the leaderboard. Sunday didnâ€™t bring the same fortune for Mayfair, as he shot his first two double-bogeys of the tournament and finished the day with a 4-over par, 76 and tied for 14th-place with Kevin Na.
McIlroy started the day in a tie for seventh place with Anthony Kim, Bill Haas, Jim Furyk and Paul Goydos. By the end of the day, he would leapfrog everyone ahead of him to pick up the victory.
Davis Love III and Phil Mickelson were tied for second place, two-strokes behind Mayfair at 7-under par. Love III was looking to win his first tournament, since winning the Childrenâ€™s Miracle Network Classic in November of 2008, finishing 25-under par. Love III ended the tournament by shooting a 4-over, 76 and finished tied for 17th place with four others.
Mickelson was playing in his first tournament since winning the Masters and he played well on Sunday, shooting a 4-under, 68. Mickelson finished the tournament at 11-under par and in second place, four strokes behind McIlroy.
This week, the PGA Tour rolls into Ponte Verde Beach, Florida for The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. The Players is considered â€œthe fifth majorâ€ by many of the players on tour. Swedenâ€™s Henrik Stenson is the defending champion, defeating Ian Poulter by four strokes. Stenson finished the tournament 12-under par and won his second PGA Tour event.
Tiger Woods, who failed to make the cut for only the sixth time in his career in the Quail Hollow Championship, will try his luck again in the Players Championship. Last season, Tiger finished the tournament in eighth place, seven-strokes behind Stenson. Woods won the tournament in 2001 and will be looking to get back to form this week.
