Rory McIlroy has notched his second PGA Tour win of the 2024 season.

After winning the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April, McIlroy followed up the outstanding performance with a win at the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday.

McIlroy finished 17-under par on Sunday at Quail Hollow in North Carolina to beat Xander Schauffele, who finished 12-under par. McIlroy carded a six-under 65 to round out his weekend.

With McIlroy rounding into peak form, fans are liking his chances at next week’s PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club.

McIlroy has won a pair of PGA Championships, but his last came in 2014. He’s heating up at the right time and it could lead to his first major win in a decade.

The last time McIlroy won a major, the PGA Championship in 2014, he had won the week before, and the 35-year-old admitted he feels like things are setting up in his favor this time around.

“Going to a venue next week where I’ve won, it feels like the stars are aligning a little bit,” McIlroy told CBS’ Amanda Balionis. “But I’ve got a lot of golf to play and a lot of great players to try to beat next week. But going into the next major of the year feeling really good about myself.”
