McIlroy Blows Away World Class Field…. Again

Man of the moment Rory McIlroy won his third tournament in his last four starts with a convincing two-shot victory over Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood in the BMW Championship at Crooked Stick.

McIlroy who started the day one shot behind leaders Vijay Singh and Phil Micklelson managed to get clear and separated himself from a star-studded leaderboard including Tiger Woods who finished three back on seventeen under par with a closing five-under 68.

The 23 year old Northern Irishman goes into FedEx Cup finale in the Tour Championship at Eastlake in two weeks time as favourite to take home the  $10m jackpot.

The thing that the rest of the field must find a little worrying is how easy he makes the game look under so much pressure and how little fuss he makes about going about his business.

If he works as hard at his game as Tiger used to and still does then we really could have something special on our hands.
