McIlroy gets his 20th PGA Tour win

Rory McIlroy was dominant again as he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday. McIlroy’s first title of the season was the 20th PGA Tour win of his career, placing him only three behind leader Jordan Spieth. McIlroy has recorded eight top-five finishes this season after starting with a win in Abu Dhabi and two runners-up. “We all know I can be the best player in the world,” McIlroy said. “Now it’s just a matter of me making sure I’m at my best each and every week.” The 33-year-old will now turn his attention to preparing for the Masters, with McIlroy pleased to be healthy and back at the top of his game. “I feel fresh, I feel strong, I feel prepared to play in the Masters now after missing it two years ago,” he said.

McIlroy’s win comes after he suffered two high-profile injuries. McIlroy had surgery on a ruptured ankle ligament last year and then in 2014 had the weight of his career lifted off his shoulders when he broke his leg after tripping on a shot.
