PGA – McIlroy wins in Dubai

Posted on November 26, 2012 in Professional Sports News.

Rory McIlroy birdied the final five holes on Sunday to rally past Justin Rose for the title at the European Tour’s season-ending event in Dubai.

Rose, starting five groups ahead of McIlroy and third-round co-leader Luke Donald, fired a 10-under 62 on Sunday to finish at 21-under par and put pressure on McIlroy.

The world’s top-ranked player needed a big finish to win and did so with his five consecutive birdies to complete a

6-under 66 for a four-day total of 23-under par.

Donald had at least a piece of the lead after each of the first three rounds, but couldn’t keep pace on Sunday and closed with a 71 to end alongside Charl Schwartzel in third place at 18-under par.
