He came in on top with a 10-under-par 62 in the final round, also setting a course record.

He's the youngest man since Tiger Woods to win such a title, and, in fact, he beat Tiger in this tournament, as well as Phil Mickelson, who won at the Masters last month. McIlroy, who is from Northern Ireland, was tied for 7th going into the final round, but then blew everyone out of the water, according to Reuters.

Tiger didn't do well at all, in fact he didn't even make the cut for this tournament and was out Friday. It was only the 6th time out of 241 in his career that he didn't make it to the final round, so that's gotta be a bummer for him -- especially after a so-so performance at the Masters in April.
