Rory McIlroy WITB

Who? 29 year-old Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy

What? The 2019 Players Championship, his 15th PGA Tour victory and first of the season

Where? TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida

How? McIlroy fired a back-nine 33 to win by one shot in a thrilling finale, with 11 different players all in the running for victory at one point. Eddie Pepperell holed a 50-footer on the 17th to set the clubhouse lead at -14, before Jim Furyk stuck his approach to the 18 to 3 feet to post -15. But McIlroy held firm after birdieing 15 and 16 with two closing pars to finish one stroke clear.

Following the victory, McIlroy said:

I'm just really proud of myself, the way I played the last few holes, especially after bogeying the 14th from the middle of the fairway. The second shot on 15 to set up that birdie putt was the best shot of the day by far.
