Rory McIlroy is thrilled to be back at the top of the world rankings after winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

The Ulsterman built on last month's brilliant triumph at The Open by overtaking Sergio Garcia on the final day at Firestone, eventually winning by two strokes from the Spaniard who had led by three shots going into the last 18 holes.

McIlroy carded a final-day 66 to finish on 15-under-par and returned to number one in the rankings for the first time since March 2013 after Adam Scott failed to finish inside the top five.

Garcia had a 71 on Sunday to finish on 13-under and was once again forced to lament what might have been following his near miss at The Open just a fortnight ago.

Garcia is 15.00 to win this week's US PGA Championship, while McIlroy can be backed at 6.00, Phil Mickelson at 23.00 and Scott at11.00.

McIlroy said after his latest success: "What I'm really proud of this week is following on from The Open with a performance like this.

"I said straight after The Open that I didn't want any let down, I wanted to keep going and performing until the end of the season.

"It's great to come to one of my favourite tournaments of the year and to perform like this. I am pretty satisfied."
