Four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy turns 31 today and Compleat Golfer takes a look at the numbers behind his career.
The Nothern Irishman currently sits on top of the frozen world rankings – he moved into top spot after a T5 finish at the The Genesis Invitational. His weeks spent as the planet’s best are currently 101 and go with four Major victories – between 2011 and 2014 – and 18 PGA TOUR wins, the last of which coming at the WGC-HSBC Champions. As a two-time FedExCup winner he has a US earnings tally of $52,552,481.
McIlroy has notched 14 European Tour wins and famously entertained South African crowds at Glendower, but lost the 2017 SA Open to Graeme Storm in a playoff.
