CHARLOTTE, N.C. — In 2010 – a young Rory McIlroy won his first PGA Tour event at Quail Hollow. In 2015, he was the Number One player in the world, and played like it. 

McIlroy breaking several records during a sunny and warm week. His Sunday round was simply dominant. 

He an 11-under-par 61 to break his own course record for 18 holes, and ran away from the pack.

McIlroy's records included the 72-hole tournament scoring record, which he beat by five strokes, and a seven-stroke victory, the most in tournament history as well.

Unfortunately Rory won’t get a chance to play at one of his favorite courses this year – but we can still help the many charities assisted by the Wells Fargo Championship.
