A poor final round from Rory McIlroy saw he hopes of a victory on his 30th birthday fade away

  • Rory McIlroy’s poor final round meant he couldn’t win on his 30th birthday
  • Playing alongside him was Justin Rose, who could only settle for third place
  • Instead it was Max Homa who won the Wells Fargo Championship by three

Rory McIlroy’s hopes of marking his 30th birthday with a statement victory fell flat at the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday following a poor final round.
