Alliss applauds 'gracious' McIlroy
- From the section Golf
BBC golf commentator Peter Alliss celebrates Rory McIlroy's eight-stroke victory at the US Open and praises the "courteous" way the 22-year-old conducted himself throughout his maiden major title win.
McIlroy claimed victory on Sunday night at the Congressional Country club after shooting a final-round 69 to end the four days at 16 under par.
The remarkable win helps lay to rest memories of McIlroy's Masters meltdown in April, when he blew a four-shot lead going into the final day at Augusta.
