BMW Championship 2012 Results: Rory McIlroy Wins 2nd Straight Following 67

Rory McIlroy fired a final-round 67 on Sunday at the 2012 BMW Championship at Crooked Stick Golf Club to capture his second straight PGA TOUR victory and all the momentum heading into the FedEx Cup finals at East Lake.

He came out of a four-way tie after making back-to-back birdies on the back nine, and it would be enough for the two-time major champion to hold off a host of capable challengers.

Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood would succumb to mistakes that would allow McIlroy to pull away. Westwood mishit a chip shot on the 14th hole that led to a bogey. He made a par on the par-5 15th and gave another stroke to the field en route to a 69.

Mickelson had a roller coaster ride of a round and finished with a two-under 70 after going into the day with a share of the lead.

Former world No. 1 Tiger Woods finished tied for fourth and shot a 68.
