Rory Mcilroy started the game with 4 strokes behind to overtake Adam Scott to win Australia Open…What a game… Too bad I missed the second nine to bring my family for lunch but the first nine is memorable snuff to make my day...

On the 17th, Adam had a chance to seal it. But miss the birdie chance. Rory made a long putt for par

On e 18th, 

Adam' s approach shot was long and the ball fed down to to the dreaded collection area. He was 1 shot up and Rory was 2 on going for birdie

Adam then over cooked his chip upwards the green and ball ran far away into the 3 putt zone

He made the 2 putts for a bogey

Rory has 2 putts to force a playoff and 1 putt to win

His ball (putt) almost stopped millimeters from the hole, and missing a heart beat, the ball rolled into the hole, for the championship

What a match!

I was watching the whole match from the 1st hole. I think Adam Scotts was feeling the pressure from Rory and eventually tumbled on 18th when he overchipped. Rory was in an incredible form and starting to shine finally.

i beg to defer

i think Adam was pretty much in control till 18th

Its jus that he didn't make the putts to pull away on 2 holes where rory found the bunkers with his approaches. And 1 mistake cost Adam dearly

Credit to Rory for some good sand saves and putting. In the end, putting was the difference

In fact, 

rory didn't celebrate much after making the final birdie putt cos he felt sorry for Adam.

It is very gentleman of him, and in the spirit of Golf, that he repeatedly hailed Adam as "arguably one of the best golfers in the world", and that "he is sorry to have usurped his glory"

great tribute paid to a great competitor

i do hope we see more of such grace, not only in golf, but also in life

Don mentioned man! I'm searching for it, must well share after I found it. Definitely not as exciting as watching live. The highlights made this duel look so simple… I remembered I was glueing my eyes on the tv whenever it's the turn of Adam and Rory.
