Off the Tee: McIlroy Rolls to Wells Fargo Title, Lee Wins Kingsmill
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Rory McIlroy is the first two-time winner of the Wells Fargo Championship following a dominating seven-shot victory over Webb Simpson and Patrick Rodgers.
The top-ranked McIlory followed Saturday's 61 with a 3-under 69 to finish at 21-under 267, shattering the tournament record by five strokes.
It is McIlroy's second victory in the past three weeks, and his 11th on the PGA Tour. He won the Match Play Championship this month in San Francisco.
He has six top-10 finishes in his last eight PGA Tour starts.
Rodgers finished with a 68, and Simpson shot 69.
