Rory McIlroy finished in the top-five for the sixth consecutive event to start his 2020 season. McIlroy got off to a flying start, shooting an opening round of six-under 66, but struggled in difficult conditions on the weekend. He finished at even par for the week and four strokes off the lead.
McIlroy continues to show why he is the number one ranked golfer in the world. He finished sixth in both strokes gained: approach, and strokes gained: tee-to-green, on the week. McIlroy will be attempting to defend his title at the Players Championship beginning Thursday.
