Tue, 1st Jun 2010
Rory McIlroy set a new course record en route to winning the Quail Hollow Championship, his first US PGA title. He became the youngest winner on the Tour since Tiger Woods in 1996. The Northern Irishman, who turned 21 that week enjoyed a blistering round, capped by a 43 foot birdie putt on the 18th to sign for a 62 and win by four shots from Phil Mickelson. This victory lifted him back into the World's Top 10 at World Nº 9, a jump of 4 places. Mickelson's' second place finish gave him an opportunity to take the World Nº One spot at the Player's Championship if he could win, and Tiger Woods finished outside the Top 5. South African Tim Clark won The Players Championship in at TPC Sawgrass to win his first PGA Tour tournament in a 12-year period. Five birdies in a six hole stretch in the middle of his round gave Clark the lead and he completed his round in 67, the best of the day by two, for a single stroke victory over Robert Allenby. The win took Tim Clark to World Nº 20, a rise of 20 places. Jim Australia's Adam Scott claimed his first PGA Tour title since 2008 with victory in the Valero Texas Open. The play on Friday was washed out due to heavy rain and a tornado warning, leaving 36 holes to be played on the final day. Adam Scott responded superbly with rounds of 66 and 67 to post a total of 14 under par and one-shot winning margin from Sweden's Fredrik Jacobson. The win took Adam Scott up seven places in the Official World Golf Ranking to Nº 36.
