Filed under: Florida Events,Florida News,Golf,Sport |

Rory McIlroy has won the Players Championship, beating 48-year-old Jim Furyk by one shot after a thrilling final round at Sawgrass. The Northern Irishman is just the second Briton to win the Players Championship, following Sandy Lyle in 1987.

A two-under-par 70 gave him victory on 16 under and it was his first taste of victory in a year. Remarkably, McIlroy has finished in the top six of all his tournaments in 2019 and the win sets him up for an attempt at the career Grand Slam at the Masters next month.

The 29 year old won the US Open in 2011, US PGA Championship in 2012 and 2014 and The Open in 2014 but is yet to win the Masters, which starts on 11 April.

The Players Championship is known unofficially as the ‘fifth major’ and is the most prestigious of the regular PGA Tour events. After the event McIlroy said: “This was one of the tournaments that I desperately wanted to win and get on my CV.  It’s got the deepest field. There’s some unbelievable names on the trophy and I’m proud for my name to be among them.”
