The world number 6 hit two clutch shots on the way to a final round 69. McIlroy, who was forced to play half of his third round in the morning because of weather delay, couldn’t get it going in time. Rickie’s short game hit perfection at the right moments. Here he is Eagling the par 5 8th.

Rory chipped in on the 16th and Eagled the 18th to come within one shot of Rickie…

Just after the cheers stopped Rickie’s response was top class…

Obviously there was time for a winner’s selfie…
