Rory McIlroy Wins First Pro Event At 19

It was great to see Rory McIlroy come through and win and get his first professional win. It's hard to believe he's just nineteen sometimes. It wasn't the prettiest with a few bogeys down the stretch but he managed a par on the last to beat Justin Rose by one shot.

“This is my first win and it was really hard,” said McIlroy.

“It has taken a monkey off my back having lost in the play-offs.

“I got myself into a great position at the middle of the back nine, let a few shots slip when Justin birdied a couple of them.

“I fought back and it is nice to hold it together on the last with a great up-and-down for the victory.”
