 Rory is 2 million dollars richer after winning in Shanghai


Shanghai - At the Shanghai Masters, Rory McIlroy (72) outdueled

Anthony Kim (69) in a playoff to win the richest purse in golf.Kim pulled 

the 4 foot putt that he needed to survive to the next hole, McIlroy made

his tap in for his second title this season.


"It's something that I feel like I can still get better at is winning and putting

yourself in the position to win when you're not playing your best," McIlroy

said."Even if it's scrappy golf where you grind it out, you're going to win a lot

more tournaments by doing that rather than playing your best golf the whole

week. I was very happy I was able to pull this one out."


The victory comes on the heels of the world #3 leaving the management

company ISM and agent Andrew "Chubby"Chandler for the Irish company

Horizon Sports fronted by Conor Ridge.Horizon also manages fellow Irishman

Graeme McDowell, and McIlroy's girlfriend and world #1 Tennis player,

Christine Wozniacki.
