With the DP World Tour Championship complete, Rory McIlroy officially won the 2014 Race to Dubai.
McIlroy clinched the season-long award following last week's Turkish Airlines Open, but needed to wait out the finale before putting his mitts on the hardware. Instead of coasting to the finish line, the 25-year-old shared second place at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai today, just two strokes off the pace of two-time defending champion Henrik Stenson. This is McIlroy's second R2D title in three seasons. "Winning it for the first time two years ago was a fantastic feeling," he said a week ago, "but I feel like I’m now a more complete player and my all-round game has moved to another level. I've put in a lot of hard work this season, with my game and my fitness, so it’s nice to get the rewards at the end of it." All told, the Ulsterman went 13-for-14 on the European Tour this season with four wins and a trio of runner-up finishes. Nov 23 - 5:04 PM

Rory McIlroy announced that his ongoing legal dispute will force him to miss playing time in the coming weeks.

The Irish Independent reported that the world's top-ranked golfer will take a pass on either the BMW Masters (Oct. 30-Nov. 2) or the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions (Nov. 6-9). If he sits out both, he's unlikely to skip the DP World Tour Championship on Nov. 20-23. The annual stop in Dubai concludes the European Tour season.

Rory McIlroy disposed of Rickie Fowler 5 and 4 in singles at the Ryder Cup to put the first point on the board today.

McIlroy was absolutely on fire, recording seven birdies and an eagle while dropping just one hole the entire match. With the Europeans only needing four (of 12) points in the final session to retain the Ryder Cup, the Ulsterman has the momentum headed in the right direction for the home team. Europe now leads 11-6. McIlroy ends the week at Gleneagles with a 2-1-2 record, with his wins coming in the final two sessions. Despite competing in all five sessions, Fowler was unable to collect a win and finishes the week 0-2-3.

With birdies at the 17th and 18th holes, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia secured a halve with Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker in their foursomes match at the 40th Ryder Cup.

The American staked a 2-up lead with a par-4 at the 15th hole. The teams traded birdie-4s at 16. McIlroy then drilled home a long birdie at the par-3 17th to set up the chance for half a point. They converted at the par-5 18th when Garcia's birdie try disappeared. Fowler had a look for the win on the same green, but his attempt never threatened. Fowler and Walker went 0-0-2 today, although the swing of emotions for both sat on opposite ends of the spectrum. With this split, Europe maintains the outright lead overall, 4-3.

Rory McIlroy will have a crack at the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles this week at the 40th Ryder Cup.

McIlroy will be making his third straight Ryder Cup appearance, with a 4-3-2 record currently on his resume. There has been a lot of hubbub about the relationship with his usual playing partner, McDowell, due to management legal issues. Whether that is a real concern or not, McIlroy may find himself with a new partner-in-crime this week as the McIlroy/G-Mac duo has posted a disappointing 2-3-0 in the past. Regardless of his playing partner, McIlroy will be tough to beat this week.

Rory Mcilroy stumbled to a 1-over-par 37-34=71 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, ending the week at 8-under 272, three shots behind winner Billy Horschel.

McIlroy played in the final pairing with eventual champion and held serve until the difficult par-3 sixth hole. The Ulsterman pulled out his 5-iron for the 224-yard approach and pulled it into the water, ultimately settling for a double bogey. Three holes later, an errant tee shot left him in trouble, leaving a punch out to the fairway as his only option leading to a bogey. McIlroy bounced back in the end, birdieing three of the last four holes, but the damage had already been done. After a season that included three victories, McIlroy will now rest up before the Ryder Cup in two weeks.

Rory McIlroy carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his third round of the TOUR Championship to arrive at the 54-hole mark with a piece of the lead.

McIlroy trailed for most of round before evening the score at the par-5 15th with a clutch eagle hole out from just off the green. Prior to that point, the Ulsterman had circled three birdies but had also given two back. His only highlight on the putting surface came from 20'11" for birdie on the par-4 third hole. With a share of the lead at 9-under 201, McIlroy will be looking to finish off his fantastic season with a bang.

With a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in his second round of the TOUR Championship, Rory McIlroy owns outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 6-under 134.

The memorable incident of McIlroy's latest Friday success story occurred at the par-4 14th hole where his drive found the right pocket of a spectator's shorts. The Ulsterman took the free drop and would par the hole. However, the real fireworks took place elsewhere. He hit 14 greens in regulation and buried six of those looks, including runs from 11'3", 19'4" and 27'3" at Nos. 2, 17 and 18, respectively. McIlroy even poured in a par save from 12'11" at the par-4 16th to begin that nifty closing stretch with his blade. Since he started the week slotted fourth in the FedExCup standings, a victory would automatically clinch the eighth edition of the title.
Sep 12 - 1:50 PM

Rory McIlroy shared a piece of 10th place in his 2012 TOUR Championship debut and returns this week with complete control of his FedExCup destiny.

The Ulsterman opens the week ranked fourth in the FedExCup standings, which allows him complete control. If he wins this week, he knows for certain the FedExCup is his. With top 25s in all 16 events played this season, McIlroy is as safe as it comes for gamers this week. Expect him to rise to the top this week as he chases his first FedExCup title.

Rory McIlroy lit up Cherry Hills Country Club for a 4-under-par 30-36=66 in the final round of the BMW Championship, but it was not without a major error.

McIlroy played 17 of the holes without a blemish, circling an eagle on the par-4 seventh to go with four birdies. While two of his birdies were outside of 12 feet, the real highlight was the pitch-in eagle from 56 yards out of the right rough. The par-3 12th once again proved to be a problem. After a four-putt triple bogey on Saturday, the Ulsterman hit his tee shot to 19'2" in the finale. Rather than convert a simple two-putt par, he took four putts to secure a double bogey. His 8-under 272 is good for a top-10 finish ahead of the TOUR Championship.
Sep 7 - 5:40 PM

Rory McIlroy fell out of contention for the BMW Championship title with a 2-over-par 33-39=72 in the third round.

The turning point of his lap around Cherry Hills CC occurred on the par-3 12th green. After missing the green, he hit an impressive chip from an impossible lie to 4'5". Rather than save par, he ran his first putt 4'9" by the hole. He then continued the carnage by missing from two feet before draining a 1'7" effort for a triple bogey. As fate would have it, he bounced back with a 15'10" birdie on the very next hole. He also converted a 59'8" birdie putt earlier in his round. The problem for the Ulsterman is that his 4-under 206 now trails Billy Horschel by nine strokes with 18 to play.
Sep 6 - 6:31 PM

Eighteen-hole co-leader Rory McIlroy answered his opening 34-33=67 at the BMW Championship with another in today's second round.

He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, but this round really wasn't going anywhere until he poured in a birdie from 27'5" at the par-3 15th hole. That sparked a run of three straight, including a round-long 34'3" at the par-4 16th. At 6-under 134, McIlroy is just two strokes behind 36-hole leader Sergio Garcia.
Sep 5 - 7:30 PM

Rory McIlroy posted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the BMW Championship, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

The world's top-ranked golfer admitted to mental fatigue earlier in the week, but he played his first 15 holes at Cherry Hills today in bogey-free 5-under with five birdies. His longest conversion measured 20'7" for birdie at the par-4 first hole, his 10th of the round. He also holed out from four yards away just off the green at the par-4 second, also for birdie. Alas, he closed bogey-bogey-par. That he swallowed only two bogeys despite missing seven greens in regulation should be considered a plus. He's currently second in the FedExCup standings.
Sep 4 - 6:38 PM

Rory McIlroy fell flat in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to the tune of a 1-under-par 35-35=70 and shared fifth place at 11-under 273.

There were many ready to hand McIlroy the trophy following his third-round 64, but the Ulsterman failed to produce on Monday. While his five birdies were impressive, he stubbed his toe for four bogeys at TPC Boston. Though he found 13 GIR, he lost .616 strokes with the flat stick and all of his birdies were from close range. Expect him to bounce back and be a factor at the BMW Championship next week.
Sep 1 - 6:42 PM

Rory McIlroy lit up TPC Boston for a bogey-free third-round 7-under-par 33-31=64 and is the 54-hole clubhouse leader in the Deutsche Bank Championship at 10-under 203.

Any hangover from the Ulterman's three consecutive wins, beginning with The Open Championship and ending at the PGA Championship, seems to have been put to bed. He circled seven birdies and settled for 11 pars on the afternoon. While his longest highlight on the green was a 26'8" birdie at the par-3 third hole, his approaches at the par-4 15th and par-3 16th took the cake. He stop his second shot at 15 a mere 10 inches from the cup, then spun his tee shot on the 16th to within 11 inches. Perhaps it isn't a surprise that he landed 15 GIR. While Jason Day stood one-stroke clear of McIlroy in real time when Rory ran out holes, the Aussie better closer strong. McIlroy has a confident look that could easily produce a win on Monday if the door is left ajar.
