RSS

Rory McIlroy led for most of the final round at the Irish Open, but Russell Knox took the lead with birdies on 14 and 15. That's when McIlroy stepped up and reminded everyone of his greatness.

First, he annihilated a 3-wood from 271 yards to set up an easy two-putt birdie at the par-5 16th.



He nearly birdied the par-4 17th, but his birdie putt spun around the hole.



But then at the par-5 18th, the tournament host nearly holed out from 252 yards for an albatross. He settled for an easy eagle and a three-shot victory.
