2012 BMW Championship Results: Rory McIlroy Wins Tournament By Finishing At 20-Under

Rory McIlroy is the winner of the 2012 BMW Championship after finishing the tournament at 20-under. McIlroy beat out Lee Westwood and Phil Mickelson, both of whom finished at 18-under.

Mickelson entered play on Sunday tied for the lead with Vijay Singh, but both golfers were unable to keep up with McIlroy, who finished strong on Saturday and kept that momentum rolling into Sunday by shooting a 5-under 67. While Mickelson still played fairly well in completing his day at 2-under, Singh struggled to a 1-over 73 and finished five shots off the lead.

Tiger Woods, who finished in a tie for fourth place with Robert Garrigus, rebounded from a somewhat-mediocre Saturday to shoot 4-under on Sunday. Both golfers completed the tournament at 17-under.

The wheels fell off on Sunday for Colorado State alum Martin Laird, who shot a 9-over 81, which represented the worst score of the day. Laird finished the tournament at 2-over, which put him in a tie for 62nd place.

McIlroy has won three out of the last five PGA Tour events, and is tops on the 2012 PGA Money List with over $7.8 million in earnings after taking home $1.44 million for winning the BMW Championship.
