Rory McIlroy ends the year in dramatic style


With a birdie on the 18th hole in the final round, OMEGA brand ambassador Rory McIlroy narrowly defeated home favourite Adam Scott at the Australian Open on Sunday. Rory started the last round four shots behind Scott, but drew even when he eagled the seventh and birdied the eighth.

Adam Scott came into the final day at 16 under, four shots ahead of Rory McIlroy, who in turn was four ahead of the next closest challenger; thus, the final round on Sunday was essentially a head-to-head competition between the No. 2-ranked Australian and Rory McIlroy, who was the world's top-ranked player last year.

Congratulations to Rory – 2014 promises to be a great year!
