Rory McIlroy Wins Wells Fargo Championship

Rory McIlroy continues to roll, shooting 21-under to win the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday. McIlroy cruised to a seven-shot victory over Webb Simpson and Patrick Rodgers.

It was his second win in the last three weeks and 11th on the PGA Tour. McIlroy has finished in the top-10 six times in his past eight PGA tournaments. He won the Match Play Championship in San Francisco earlier this month.

Not only did the 26-year-old win, he shot a tournament record 267, besting the previous record by five strokes.

“I’m really happy with my game, and everything is firing on all cylinders,” McIlroy told reporters.

McIlroy entered Sunday at Quail Hollow with a six-stroke lead after posting a course-record 61 on Saturday. Rodgers got within three shots at one point, but was unable to catch the Northern Irishman.
