Rory McIlroy had a great 2021 DP World Tour Championship. However, sadly, he just couldn’t see it through when it mattered the most on the final day. He was dominant in this tournament, right from the first day as he carded 65 and remained at the top with a score of -7. Furthermore, he was decent enough in the second and third rounds, but unfortunately, he couldn’t cross the finishing line.

Hence, the man who was going so well and was all set to win the DP World Tour Championship finished the event with a score of -12 at T6 position.
