Rory McIlroy wins European PGA Championship after breakup with fiancee Caroline Wozniacki

Turns out, Rory McIlroy was engaged all this week at the BMW PGA Championship. No longer to Caroline Wozniacki, but rather, engaged in his golf at Wentworth.

McIlroy posted his lowest round of the week on Sunday, a 6-under 66, en route to a one-shot victory over childhood friend Shane Lowry at the European Tour’s flagship event. It was his sixth European Tour victory, his first on European soil and his first since November 2012, when he won the DP World Tour Championship.

McIlroy mounted the largest final-round comeback of his career; he came from seven shots back of 54-hole leader Thomas Bjorn. McIlroy got off to a hot start with an eagle at the par-5 fourth hole, then added six birdies to just two bogeys on the day.

McIlroy's last worldwide victory came at the Australian Open in December 2013, where he also shot 66 in the final round to win by one over Adam Scott. It was later that month, on December 31st, that McIlroy asked for Wozniacki's hand in marriage.

Finishing two shots back of McIlroy were Bjorn (75) and former world No. 1 Luke Donald (70).
