Rory McIlroy storms to victory on the PGA Tour

We all know on this side of the pond that Rory McIlroy has class but his finishing round of 62 to win his maiden PGA tour event by 4 shots from Phil Mickelson at the notoriously difficult Quail Hollow Classic has certainly raised a few eyebrows.  With 17 birdies and eagle over the weekend there was no one to touch him.  Rory remarks that he felt in the zone in the last round and long may it continue.

This result has catapulted him up the Sony world rankings to ninth joining Paul Casey, Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood in the top ten.

With Tiger Woods missing the cut and Phil Mickelson winning at Augusta and second at Quail Hollow to gap at the top of the world ranking is getting tighter.  Will Tiger recover from his off the course issues.
