MCILROY (RIGHT) HOLDING THE RACE TO DUBAI TROPHY STORY: World number one Rory McIlroy picked up $2.33 million worth of desert treasure by doing 'something special' to repel a record-breaking charge from Ryder Cup team mate Englishman Justin Rose to win the World Tour Championship on Sunday (November 25). Rose almost spiked the guns of the Northern Irishman, who shared the overnight lead with Luke Donald, when he carved two shots off the previous Earth course record with a breathtaking 10-under final round of 62 containing eight birdies and an eagle. The Englishman set his target early but U.S. PGA winner McIlroy finished with the flourish of a true champion, making birdies at the last five holes to clinch victory by two strokes with a closing 66 and a 23-under tally of 265. "I knew I needed to do something special coming in," McIlroy said. "I saw Justin had posted 21-under so I knew I needed to make a few birdies and somehow I managed to make them. It was just an unbelievable way to finish. It was a great way to finish what has already been a great season. To win my last event of 2012 is very nice." Donald (71) was tied third on 270 with South African Charl Schwartzel (68) in the final event of the European Tour season. The 23-year-old McIlroy, who started the final round with a bogey-five at the first, collected $1.33 million for landing the trophy and an additional $1 million from the tour's bonus prize pool. "I'm very pleased. I could have come in here complacent and thinking I've already wrapped up the Race to Dubai and everything but I wanted to finish the season in style and I've been able to do it," said the 2011 U.S. Open winner who was cheered on by girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki, the former world number one tennis player. "It's been great to have so much support here. My parents, some friends and family (and) obviously Caroline (Wozniacki). It seems like every time she comes to a tournament I win or I go close so I might have to bring her to a few more but it's been great. We've had a great week and it's been so nice to finish it like this."
