Well the golfing year has ended and it’s Rory McIlroy who tops the Official World Golf Ranking, with Ryder Cup team-mate Luke Donald finishing second.
McIlroy has ended up finishing 251 points clear of Donald with a grand total of 596.99 points. It’s ended up being a decent season for Luke Donald especially after such a great 2011 season. It was a tough start to the season this time round but he finished strongly and should be very satisfied with what he’s done.
McIlroy, who finished third last year, has enjoyed a superb 2012 by winning the USPGA Championship and the Ryder Cup in a season full of drama and a lot of great golf. McIlroy did have a slight lull in the middle of the season and questions were asked of him but he came back stronger than ever to claim numerous titles.
Tiger Woods managed to finish third behind McIlroy and Donald which was a great improvement on his 23rd place finish last year.
I really can’t wait to see how next season pans out with so many great players in good form and to see if McIlroy can keep doing what he’s been doing or weather Tiger will be back to his absolute best. I think Tiger has played some terrific golf this season but just hasn’t managed to get the putter going. If he can, then 2013 could be a whole different story.
