McIlroy wins the Dubai Desert Classic

leave a comment »

Northern Irish teenager Rory McIlroy wins his first European Tour event the Dubai Desert Classic by one stroke from Englishman Justin Rose .The 19 year old carded a final round two under par 70 to finish at 19 under. Whilst Justin  Rose fell  short by one stroke after a five under 67 at Emirates Golf Club, he had a chance to force at least a play-off with a 15 foot birdie putt at the last but missed allowing McIlroy to roll home a four foot putt for par. The win elevates McIlroy to 14th in the world and a very  nice cheque for his troubles.
