McIlroy Reaps Massive Payday After Dubai Double
Dubai (AFP) – Rory McIlroy completed a lucrative double when he won the DP World Tour Championship and retained his Race to Dubai crown on Sunday following a thrilling victory that was built around a final-round of six-under 66.
The world number three had to battle hard and then get over a errant tee shot on the 17th hole that ended in the water to beat overnight leader Andy Sullivan of England, who fought tooth and nail and forced McIlroy to dig deep.
The win was worth $3.208 million (3.02m euros for McIlroy – $1.33 million for winning the DP World Tour Championship and $1.875 million bonus for winning the Race to Dubai. Details
