INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana - Rory McIlroy has won a second consecutive US PGA Tour playoff event, continuing his recent domination of golf with a two-shot win in Indianapolis.
World No.1 McIlroy has now won three of his last four events played, including the US PGA Championship, taking his US tour tally to six wins all before his 24th birthday.
He is the first player to win consecutive US tour starts since Tiger Woods did it in 2009.
McIlroy carded a five-under 67 on the Crooked Stick course on the final day to finish at 20-under-par, winning from England's Lee Westwood (69) and American Phil Mickelson (70) who tied second at 18-under.
Tiger Woods (68) and Robert Garrigus (69) were tied fourth a shot further back while Adam Scott (70) was the best of the Australians four shots off the pace in a tie for sixth.
McIlroy was flawless until the inconsequential final hole, knocking in six birdies over the first 16 holes to put a further stamp on his recent dominance.
A final hole bogey did little to take the gloss off an amazing stretch of golf.
"I'm just on a great run at the minute and trying to keep that going for as long as possible," McIlroy said.
"I'm playing well, I'm confident, and it's just nice to have these runs."
