Having claimed his third major championship with a wire-to-wire victory at the Open Championship this past weekend, the 25-year-old native of Holywood, Northern Ireland has moved up to No. 2 in the world rankings (behind Adam Scott).
McIlroy is the third youngest player to capture three of the four major titles. The two players who completed this feat at a younger age were Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, who combine for a total of 32 major championships.
McIlroy turned pro in 2007 at the age of 18. Two years later, he joined the PGA Tour. Of his 81 tournaments on the PGA Tour, he has won seven and finished second or third eight times. He has posted 34 top-10 finishes. Over the last two years, he has made the cut all but two times in 27 events. He has won over $18.5 million on the PGA Tour.
Here is a top 10 of McIlroy’s greatest moments.
