After coming from behind to win the 2014 European BMW PGA Championship, Rory McIlroy entered the 2014 Open Championship as the favorite to win the third major of the season. Rory came out the gate hot shooting an open round 66 to take an early lead. McIlroy maintained his lead through Saturday with a -16 par heading into the final round. Some of the greatest names in golf were chasing down Rory’s score on Sunday, but McIlroy was able to sustain his wire to wire lead and win his third major by two strokes. His 17- under par 271 was one shot off the Royal Liverpool scoring record set in 2006 and two shots off the record for most strokes under par at a major.
