McIlroy roars again at BMW Championship

Rory McIlroy added yet another victory to what has been fantastic second-half to his season with a two shot victory at the PGA Tour's BMW Championship on Sunday.

Powering his way to a 5-under 67 to finish on a 20-under-par 268, the young Ulsterman picked up a cool $1.44 million winners cheque, which gives him $7.8 million for the year -  a shoe-in for the money title that Luke Donald won last year.

"The more you put yourself in this position, and the more you win and the more you pick up trophies, it becomes normal," McIlroy said besting Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood into the runner-up spots.. "And it feels like this is what you're supposed to do."

Just like Tiger Woods in his pomp?

"I don't think I'm quite there yet," McIlroy said. "But I'm getting to that stage where I'm thinking, `This is what I should be doing. I should be lifting a trophy at the end of the week.' It's been great. The last four, five weeks have been incredible, some of the best golf that I've ever played. I'm going to try and keep the run going for as long as possible."

Fellow Brit Westwood tried to keep tabs with the young 23-year-old but his poor iron play let him down again when it mattered: a bogey on the 14th and a dismal 15th that he parred left him with a 69 as McIlroy surged ahead.

"I played with him when he was 13, and you could see it then," Westwood said. "He's just maturing all the time, as he will do. And he's a very, very good player.

McIlroy is in pole position for the $10 million FedEx Cup bonus but he will still need to top the efforts of the other top four seeds including Tiger Woods, Nick Watney, Mickleson and Brandt Snedeker to be sure that his efforts here prove to be fruitful at East Lake in two weeks time in the final event of the tournament.
