McIlroy back at No 1

Golf

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.
