Rory finished third in that event and wrapped up the Race to Dubai to become the leading money winner on the European Tour.
He had previously locked up the PGA Tour’s money title, becoming only the second professional golfer to ever win the money titles on both tours in the same year.
McIlroy also won Player of the Year on the PGA Tour and the Vardon Trophy, which goes to the PGA Tour member with the lowest cumulative scoring average for the year. Past winners include: Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino, Tom Watson and Greg Norman.
Tiger Woods won the Vardon Trophy eight times. It is one of the most cherished awards on the PGA Tour and demonstrates consistency throughout an entire season.
Rory was also entered in the UBS Hong Kong Open this week but didn’t fare as well as last week. He shot 73-72 over the first two rounds and missed the cut at five-over par.
The European Tour moves to Dubai for the season-ending DP World Tour Championship.
It doesn't appear Rory is losing too much sleep over his missed cut in Hong Kong.
Caroline Wozniacki posted this to her twitter account. It appears that she may just have gotten revenge and caught some beach time after all.
Isn’t it nice to be young, beautiful, rich and in love?
