BREAKING: McIlroy wins in Dubai to top European Tour order of merit


Rory McIlroy sealed his third European Tour order of merit title as he claimed victory at the DP World Tour Championship by one shot in Dubai.

The Northern Irishman shot a final round of 66 at the Jumeirah Golf Estate on Sunday to finish 21 under par, enough to end the season as Europe's top player.

Having trailed overnight leader Andy Sullivan through the front nine, McIlroy made his move on the way home as a flurry of birdies saw him overtake his playing partner to finish atop of the leaderboard.
