2012 BMW Championship: Rory McIlroy Earns Victory For Second Straight Week

Rory McIlroy made history on Sunday as he captured the 2012 BMW Championship at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Indiana, carding a 5-under par final round of 67 on his way to 20-under for the tournament and a two-shot win over Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood.

McIlroy is the first player since Tiger Woods in 2009 to win in back-to-back weeks on the PGA Tour, and now has three wins in his last four tournaments, the last two being FedEx Cup playoff tournaments. It is McIlroy's sixth career victory, placing him in the elite company of Woods and Jack Nicklaus as the only players to win at least six times by the age of 23.

Woods finished tied for fourth at the BMW Championship, shooting 68 on Sunday to finish at 17-under for the tournament.
