Rory McIlroy started the 2023 Genesis Scottish Open with a bogey on the second hole on Thursday, July 13, at the Renaissance Club. However, he quickly strengthened his grip on the game with an eagle on the second hole. He made a birdie on the fifth.

He made five more birdies in the second round and one bogey followed by a round of four birdies and a bogey on Saturday.

Rory McIlroy registered a one-stroke victory over Robert MacIntyre at the 2023 Scottish Open. Speaking of his performance, the former World No.1 said to reporters:

“I don’t feel like I need to prove anything in my career but it’s satisfying to know that for me that I can still do it. It’s nice to have the validation. It’s great racking up top fives, top 10s, but it’s much nicer heading away with a trophy on Sunday afternoon. It’s a great shot of confidence.”
He added:

“Hit some amazing shots down the stretch. I was able to finish it off with a really nice putt. Feels incredible. Its been a long six months since I won in Dubai… Hopefully, this win sort of breaks the seal for me going into the next week as well.”

Rory McIlroy will now head to the 2023 Open Championship soon after winning the tournament on Sunday. The last major of the year will take place from July 20 to July 23 at the Royal Liverpool.
