Rory McIlroy 2017 U.S. Open

Rory McIlroy finished the Arnold Palmer Invitational in style. The former No. 1 ranked player in the world won his first tournament in nearly two years at Bay Hill. To do so, he birdied five of his last six holes, including a thunderous birdie on 18.

With a one-shot lead over Bryson DeChambeau (who was on the 17th green), McIlroy drained a long putt to effectively put the tournament on ice.

McIlroy, who hadn’t won since the 2016 Tour Championship, was quite pumped.

The 2017 season was not a great one for McIlroy’s standards. But finishes like this remind us all of just how spectacular of a golfer this guy is. He definitely knows how to finish in style.
