(Akron, OH) -- Rory McIlroy has another victory under his belt after firing a four-under-par round of 66 to win the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club on Sunday. McIlroy held on to beat Spain's Sergio Garcia, just as he did a few weeks ago at the British Open to capture his third major. McIlroy finished at 15-under-par, two shots better than Garcia. The victory gives McIlroy the number-one spot in the World Golf Rankings heading into next week's PGA Championship at Valhalla.
