Rory McIlroy added yet another historic PGA Tour win to his resume with a dazzling final round performance at St. George’s Golf and Country Club to win back-to-back RBC Canadian Open titles. McIlroy’s Sunday 62 secured his 21st career PGA Tour victory which moves him to T-31 in career wins all-time.

McIlroy came out on fire, posting a front-nine score of 29 for the first time in his professional career. He nearly drove the green on the 349-yard 10th, which kick started a stretch of three consecutive birdies. A stuck a 111-yard approach shot to 19" with his Milled Grind 3 wedge on hole 11 and drained a 40-foot putt with his Spider X Hydro Blast on hole 12. He closed the round with consecutive birdies to finish two shots ahead of the field

At the end of the day, there were 10 circles (birdies) on his card - must be nice ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

The win in Toronto marked McIlroy’s second PGA Tour victory of the 2021-22 season, McIlroy notched his sixth career multi-win season.
