Release Date: 23 Oct 2022

CARLSBAD, Calif. (Oct. 23, 2022) – Rory McIlroy powered past a crowded leaderboard to repeat at THE CJ CUP and regain the number one spot in the OWGR for the ninth time in his career. McIlroy went 66-67-67-67 for a total of 17-under to mark his sixth straight season with a win.

McIlroy was tied for the lead as he stood on the 14th hole before making three consecutive birdies to vault to a three-stroke lead. A 13-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole with his Spider X and TP5x kickstarted the run.

The now World No. 1 followed up with a world-class bunker shot on 15 with his Milled Grind 3 wedge from the greenside bunker that rolled to just outside five feet setting up the subsequent birdie make.  On 16, McIlroy ripped a 359-yard drive with his Stealth Plus 9.0° driver and then drained a 21-foot putt to make his third consecutive birdie.
