Mistake for Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry wins

Incredible outcome at the BMW PGA Championship with Rory McIlroy missing the playoff by a few millimeters and giving the title to Irishman Shane Lowry. Matthieu Pavon finishes in the top 10th! The BMW PGA Championship had already started in a completely incredible way with the death of the Queen of England for a Rolex Series tournament reduced to 54 holes.

The outcome was just as incredible with the victory of Shane Lowry that Rory McIlroy contested until the end.

BMW Pga, results

The Northern Irishman had a seven-meter putt for eagle which came to a stop a few millimeters from the cup for a final birdie which offered the title to his Irish friend for a small point!

Lowry fully deserves his success as McIlroy told him during a nice hug in front of the recording tent. With no bogeys all week and a nice eagle on the 4th on Sunday, Lowry also had an eagle putt on his 54th hole that came close and his birdie to reach the -17 mark was enough for the win.

It is a sixth title for the Irishman who wanted to recall his attachment to the traditional circuits against the backdrop of the circuit war with the LIV. "It's been a good year for me and I've come very close to winning several times.

This victory is really among the most important of my career. I'm playing the best golf of my life and I just needed to let it go. I love this Tour and I love this tournament. » It's a nice revenge also for Shane Lowry on his great friend and almost compatriot Rory McIlroy (they both played for Ireland at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021).

In 2014, the Northern Irishman won at Wentworth one step ahead… over Lowry! This time, it took a few millimeters for McIlroy's seven-meter eagle putt to fall into the cup to go into the playoff. McIlroy therefore finished second by one point… alongside Jon Rahm.

The Spaniard signed a card of 62 with a score of -9, on his last ten holes (including two eagles on 12 and 18). Viktor Hovland is the big disappointment of the day! The Norwegian played in the last game with the Dane Soren Kjeldsen and the 10th player in the world finally settled for fifth place with his final card of 70.

This day of September 11 was also special for all Americans. They are three in the top 10, including defending champion Billy Horschel, one of the supporters of the traditional circuits, who finishes in the top 10… alongside the first Frenchman!

Matthieu Pavon signs a magnificent top 10 in one of the biggest tournaments of the DP World Tour season. With his card of 65 on Sunday, the Bordelais finished 9th and entered the top 50 of the Race. The other Tricolores missed their third and final lap.

Victor Perez and Antoine Rozner finish fiftieth (-7), just ahead of Romain Langasque (57th) and Frédéric Lacroix (65th). Julien Brun is content with 71st place (-3).
