Of the 61 strokes Rory McIlroy took on Sunday at Hamilton Golf and Country Club in a seven-stroke win at the 2019 Canadian Open, he gained ground on the field on 45 of them.

 

The 61 backed up a 67-66-64 start, putting McIlroy at 22 under for the week, a touchdown better than both Webb Simpson and Shane Lowry.

 

PGA Champion, Brooks Koepka led the week by saying he didn't really care about this week and was instead focused on the U.S. Open next week at Pebble Beach, but only breaking par one time in four rounds is not exactly inspiring stuff for the field favorite in the third major of the year. Koepka made more bogeys and double bogeys on the weekend than he made birdies and didn't look very solid other than a 66 in Round 2.
