All good things come in threes.
Rory McIlroy makes history after winning the 143rd The Open Championship with an absolutely sensational 17-under-par. Following a breath-taking final round at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake, a relieved McIlroy holds the coveted Claret Jug aloft. McIlroy, from Northern Ireland, won his third Major tournament with a total of 271 shots, becoming the third-youngest golfer to win the British Open. In addition, he is the third European to win the third tournament of the Grand Slam. Because all good things come in threes, it is worth mentioning that Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler both played a great tournament. Spain’s Sergio Garcia shares second place in the overall ranking with the Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador, Rickie Fowler, both with 15-under-par.
