Rory McIlroy targets US Open glory after Canadian Open win

Rory McIlroy shoots 61 to win Canadian Open ahead of US Open

McIlroy, who sank nine birdies and eagled No. 17, was on pace for a record-setting round. Shane Lowry (67, T2) was among those left shaking his head this time and openly wondering what golf course McIlroy was playing. But after his 64-61 weekend north of the border, in which he flirted with 59 and authored a seven-shot victory at the RBC Canadian Open, he could be on the verge of an epic season even by his lofty standards.

"I've been really impressed - went to the game almost a week ago now and I had never heard noise like that in a basketball arena before", said McIlroy.

"I must have played the course 500 times in my life but not much since the (two) new holes were created, so now I'll plan a little recce mission to play the course over the coming weeks".

Graeme McDowell holed a 29-foot putt for par on the last hole of the RBC Canadian Open to earn a spot in next month's British Open held in his hometown of Portrush, Northern Ireland.

"It answers all the questions for me for the next few weeks", said a delighted McDowell after the final round. I would rather win this week and not play Portrush.

"It's actually more hard than trying to win a golf tournament because you are trying to chase this ghost of... you don't know if guys are going low".

Sunday's triumph was McIlroy's 16th on the PGA Tour, and he has now won a national championship in six different countries - after previous successes at the US Open, British Open, Irish Open, Australian Open and Hong Kong Open.

Nevertheless, McIlroy carded a stellar nine-under-par 61, matching his career-best score on the PGA Tour in a near-perfect confidence-booster for next week's U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

"I think when you get to the US Open setup it can make you play carefully, a little tentatively and try to guide it down the fairways". Last time I had a putt for 59 was at the Bear's Club where I play in Florida, I think it was the week before the Masters in maybe 2016. "I really don't care". "You're out there playing for a lot of FedEx Cup points and a lot of cash, and all I can focus on is trying to get exempt for the Open Championship". But if I've learned anything this week it's my game is good enough and swing is good enough that I can play with freedom. He experienced it during runaway victories at the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship. He ranked 1st in Strokes Gained: Putting (+9.069) and Scrambling (18 of 21).

Did Rory just curse the Raptors?

The four-time major victor McIlroy was part of a strong field at the Canadian Open, which this year serves as the final tune up before the US Open.
