For the first time in 553 days, Rory McIlroy is once again a winner of the PGA Tour.
The 32-year-old Northern Irishman claimed his first win since the 2019 WGC-HSBC Champions – the second longest winless drought of his career – on Sunday, winning the Wells Fargo Championship by 10 under.
McIlroy shot a final 3 under 68 round at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, NC, parting with 54-hole leader Keith Mitchell, who finished T-3 at 8 under alongside Viktor Hovland. Abraham Ancer had the low round of the day, shooting a 5 under 66 for second place in solo. 2019 US Open champion Gary Woodland completed the top five at 7 under.
