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. Sep 14 - 5:59 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rory McIlroy settled for a 1-under-par 33-37=70 in the opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The 2012 champ went just 1-for-5 in scrambling en route to four bogeys at TPC Boston today. He countered with five birdies, including three on his first four holes. McIlroy's longest conversion of the round measured 34'5" at the par-3 11th, his second of the walk. He'd go on to sign his card sitting five strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Aug 29 - 4:59 PM

Rory McIlroy set aside the disappointment of an opening 74 at The Barclays and carded a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round.

The FedExCup points leader wasted no time in getting after it today, holing a birdie from inside eight feet at the par-4 first where he began the round. Five birdies ensued, all from inside 10 feet. He could have taken it deeper, too, as he fanned on a pair of looks inside nine feet. However, at 3-under 139, McIlroy has created an opportunity to make a bona fide run at his fourth consecutive victory. He's five strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Rory McIlroy blew up for a 3-over-par 40-34=74 in his opening round of The Barclays.

And the walls came tumbling down. Anything McIlroy does right now will be hyper-analyzed, so be it, but he just had a rough day on a challenging golf course. He split just seven (of 14) fairways at Ridgewood, not indicative of his precision in recent weeks. However, he managed 12 greens in regulation, which is on par with many of the early contenders. Yet, the FedExCup points leader buried only two birdies and fanned on three tries inside 10 feet. He squared three bogeys and a double. Currently eight strokes off the clubhouse lead, McIlroy has no choice but to tighten the screws if he's going to win his fourth consecutive tournament.

In a bit of unusual news regarding scheduling, Rory McIlroy announced today that he will fulfill his obligation to the Frys.com Open in 2015 instead of this October.

This stems from an agreement made in 2012 when eight PGA TOUR members were given permission to play an event in Turkey the same week as the Frys.com Open. Earlier this year, McIlroy said that he was planning on teeing it up at Silverado Resort and Spa's North Course in Napa, California, on Oct. 9-12, but there's now a conflict. See, because he won the season's last two majors, he's eligible to compete in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda, which begins the day after the scheduled conclusion of the Frys.com several times zones west. So, he's elected to honor his obligation at the PGA TOUR's season opener in 2015, which is also the last year in which he can meet the terms of the agreement.

Rory McIlroy captured the 96th PGA Championship by one stroke over Phil Mickelson with a final-round 3-under-par 36-32=68 to end the week at 16-under 268.

McIlroy looked the part of a mortal early in his last lap around Valhalla Golf Club, squaring bogeys at the par-3 third and par-4 sixth holes before finally getting on the board with birdie at the par-5 seventh hole. He would reach red figures with a 7'4" eagle on the par-5 10th, then surge ahead with a short birdie on the par-4 13th and a birdie from 10'7" on the par-4 17th. With victory almost assured, he narrowly missed the water hazard off the tee on the par-5 18th and ultimately secured a two-putt par for the win in the dark. This is the 25-year-old Ulsterman's fourth major championship victory and his second Wanamaker Trophy. With this victory, he unseats Jimmy Walker as the leader of the FedExCup standings. McIlroy has now claimed victory in each of his last three starts dating back to The Open Championship. He will enter Augusta National in search of the career grand slam next April.
