BMW Championship 2012 Results: Rory McIlroy Finishes At 20-Under, Wins Tournament

Rory McIlroy won the 2012 BMW Championship on Sunday by shooting a 5-under 67 in the final round. He finished at 20-under overall, which was two shots better than the pair of Lee Westwood and Phil Mickelson.

Mickelson entered play on Sunday tied for the lead with Vijay Singh, but both golfers were unable to keep up with McIlroy, who finished strong on Saturday and kept that momentum rolling into Sunday. While Mickelson still played fairly well in completing his day at 2-under, Singh struggled to a 1-over 73 and finished five shots off the lead.

Tiger Woods, who finished in a tie for fourth place with Robert Garrigus, rebounded from a somewhat-mediocre Saturday to shoot 4-under on Sunday. Both golfers completed the tournament at 17-under.

Texas native Bob Estes finished the day exactly where he started it, as he was even-par on Day 4 and finished the tournament in a tie for 37th place at 5-under overall. Fellow Texan Ryan Palmer shot a 1-over 73 for the third consecutive day, and ended the tournament at 3-under, which was good for a tie for 45th place.

McIlroy has won three out of the last five PGA Tour events, and is tops on the 2012 PGA Money List with over $7.8 million in earnings after taking home $1.44 million for winning the BMW Championship.
