ory McIlroy shot a stunning final round of 62 to retain his Canadian Open title.

The same weekend LIV Golf’s controversial streak began, McIlroy celebrated his 21st PGA Tour victory.

Speaking to reporters afterwards, McIlroy noted that the Tour win was “one more than anyone else”. LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman has won 2 in his career.

McIlroy, who started the day with a share of the lead with Tony Finau, birdied 10 in his eight-under round to finish two strokes ahead of the American at 19 under.

Finau finished with a 64, as did Justin Thomas who was third on 15 under, while Justin Rose had the best round of the day, a 10 under 60 that earned him a share of fourth place, a shot over far.

McIlroy now looks ahead to next week’s US Open, heading to Brookline confident of battling for a second victory and a late fifth Major title.
