Golf: McIlroy wins Irish Open!

Rory McIlroy secured his first win of the season by producing a dramatic finale in the Irish Open, his home tournament, at the K Club.
McIlroy trailed Scotland’s Russell Knox by one shot with three holes to play but outstanding second shots at the 16th and 18th helped him to the birdie and eagle which saw him win by three.
He shot a 69 to end on 12 under to clinch his first success in six months.
Knox shared second place with Welshman Bradley Dredge who fired a 66.
McIlroy had finished in the top 10 six times this season but had missed the cut at the last three Irish Opens, before landing the first prize of £515,000 at Kildare on Sunday.
Following his first Irish Open triumph, the 27-year-old donated his prize money to his charity, the Rory Foundation, which hosted the event.
His last victory came in the World Tour Championship in Dubai in November, which saw him clinch the Race to Dubai title.
