McIlroy back at No 1Comment on this story
Charlotte, North Carolina – Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy reclaimed golf's world number-one ranking on Sunday despite falling to Rickie Fowler in a playoff at the US PGA Tour's Wells Fargo Championship.
McIlroy, who celebrated his 23rd birthday on Friday, regained the summit a week after he was supplanted by England's Luke Donald.
The two have exchanged the top spot for the past two months, and McIlroy needed only a top-seven finish at Quail Hollow to return to number one. – Sapa-AFP
