Congratulations Rory: The third Major’s a charm!


OMEGA ambassador Rory McIlroy dominated the leaderboard throughout The British Open Championship, leading after every round before finishing with a narrow victory over fellow OMEGA ambassador Sergio Garcia and American golfer Ricky Fowler.

In the third round of the tournament, Rory made two eagles on the final three holes allowing him to take a six-stroke lead into the final 18 holes.

It was the third Major championship for the Northern Irishman. He became only the third player in history to win three Majors by the age of 25. Rory had already won the U.S. Open (2011) and the PGA Championship (2012). He took a six-stroke lead into the final round and faced an impressive challenge from Sergio Garcia, who came within two strokes of the lead in the final round.


Congratulations to Rory McIlroy for his dramatic victory.
