Las Vegas (AP) Rory McIlroy concludes his big weekend in Las Vegas on Sunday, overtaking Rickie Fowler and overtaking Collin Morikawa to win his 20th PGA Tour title at the Summit’s CJ Cup.
McIlroy took control with a 35-foot eagle putt from the green on the 14th of par 5, playing 6 under 66 and 1 win without mistakes.
McIlroy is the 39th player to win at least 20 PGA Tour titles and his fifth consecutive PGA Tour season with at least one win.
Fowler, who started the final round by two strokes without winning for nearly three years, faded out with three putts and tied for third place with 71 strokes. The threat came from Morikawa, a member of the Summit Club. Morikawa shot 29 at the front to join the mix and closed with 62 eagle.
As a result, McIlroy was forced to play without mistakes after a big eagle putt on the 14th and never approached the bogey when finishing 25 under 263.
He shot nine shots from the lead over the weekend, made enough ground at 62 on Saturday and pulled away using the scoring hole.
Keith Mitchell had a five-shot lead to 73 in the third round, but finished 67 and drew with Fowler in third place.
