BMW Championship 2012 Results: Rory McIlroy Wins Again

Rory McIlroy played a near flawless final round Sunday at the BMW Championship in Carmel, IN to take home his second title in as many weeks.

McIlroy finished the tournament at 20-under, two shots ahead of Lee Westwood and Phil Mickelson and three shots ahead of Tiger Woods. Vijay Singh led going into Sunday but finished five shots off the pace at 15-under.

Fresh off a victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship, McIlroy entered the final round Sunday down one stroke to leaders Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh. By the turn, McIlroy had taken the lead, yet to make a bogey. McIlroy continued playing mistake free golf until the No. 18 when he finally bogeyed. He finished his final round with six birdies, 5-under.

Tiger Woods entered his final round three shots back of the lead but only two shots back of McIlroy, however, he could not keep pace with the world's No. 1 golfer. Not many could. McIlroy's 5-under was the third best round of any player at the BMW Championship Sunday.

McIlroy has now won three of the last four tournaments he has played in including a major, the PGA Championship. His only slip-up was a 24th finish at The Barclays.
