Congratulations once again Rory!

5 May

Rory Mcllroy gave himself an early birthday present over the weekend with a victory in the WGC- Cadillac Match Play in San Francisco. This is Mcllroy’s second World Golf Championship title after victory in the Bridgestone Invitational last year.

He defeated Gary Woodland 4&2 in the final at Harding Park, his third win of the day after completing victory over Paul Casey in the quarter-finals and producing a brilliant finish to get the better of Jim Furyk in the last four.

McIlroy admits he was proud of the character he showed in San Francisco and so are we!

We would also like to wish Rory a happy 26th birthday!
