Hoylake, England (SportsNetwork.com) - It wasn't as easy as he had hoped, but Rory McIlroy won the Open Championship by two strokes on Sunday.
McIlroy closed with a 1-under 71 at Royal Liverpool to end at 17-under-par 271. He now owns three legs of the grand slam, having already won the PGA Championship and the U.S. Open.
The Ulsterman's lead dipped to two a couple of times, but he 2-putted for par at the last to seal the wire-to-wire win.
